Presentation was informative and instructions were easy to follow .
The candle making group was very much engaged, there was fun and laughter.
The candles smells heavenly and it made you proud that you have created something so lovely and therapeutic. The fun is you could then take the finished candles home.
I really enjoyed the class /group and the presenter and her helpers good personalitird which helps for engaging in a group setting.
Learning about different scents and the products used to make the candles was very interesting.
I will booked my follow up class for next month.
Thanks for a good candle making experience.
