About the Course
Join us for a fun and relaxed morning’s workshop in candle making held in a cosy village hall in the Hertfordshire countryside. No previous experience is needed – just come along and enjoy learning a new skill.
All our candles are made with soy wax with a range of fragrance oils and dyes to choose from so you can create your own unique candles to take home.
The workshop will involve making a variety of candle styles – a star shaped cone candle, pillar, votive, container candle and tealights. And to help when you have a go at home, we’ll send you away with one of our step-by-step guides.
We will make a container candle, a small Christmas tree candle and a pillar candle and tealights.
Class sizes are small – a maximum of 6 – to allow for individual attention. Ages: 16+.
Weekend classes are available if you’re busy during the week. Please contact us to discuss private workshops for smaller or larger groups.

What's included in the price?
All materials are included and fresh coffee, tea, juices and biscuits will be available throughout the morning. There is plenty of parking.
Candlemaking kits are available at the workshop - either to carry on your new skill or as a lovely Christmas gift.
My first candle making course, really enjoyed it. Anne was an excellent teacher, everything was simply explained, I found it easy to follow. We were not rushed at all and made several different types of and colours of candles. They turned out very well, my husband was extremely impressed with the final product. I will certainly book in again for another session.

A friendly personalised workshop just right for beginners. It was really enjoyable and we came away with some lovely candles as well as having learnt a lot about candle making and how to go about it at home. Delighted with the candles I made, learnt about dyes, scents as well as different styles of candles. Thanks very much!

My wife and I had an excellent time, Anne is a lovely lady, she is very professional and knowledgeable. Anne answered all our questions. We learnt a good variety of candle styles and were allowed to take them home to enjoy and give some to family and friends. We will highly recommend this course to anyone. Thank you Anne, you are a star.

What a super course, Ann was absolutely lovely and we made some super candles varying in shape, size, colours & scent. Tea/coffee & cakes served. The course is run in a beautiful village church hall with excellent parking, easy to find. Had a very enjoyable relaxing few hours & came away with super candles, well worth the money, I shall look to go back to the advanced course in the future. 5 stars!

Excellent course - small group which worked perfectly. We got to make far more candles than I thought we would in one session. Would definitely recommend.

Really enjoyed the class. Was lucky to share the class with a small group of lovely ladies. Anne was really helpful and answered any questions we had. We were able to make so many candles. More than I expected to be making. Really happy with the class and would attend the advanced class with Anne which she is considering for the future.
