Julie and Carol's course is exceptionally well structured, carefully organised and very informative. Class sizes are appropriate for the space available, ensuring that COVID 19 safety guidelines can be observed, whilst also enabling enough 1-1 help and discussion, if needed for each attendee.
Each step is explained in detail, together with the associated data for the required ingredients and methods.
Attendees made and took home a variety of natural wax products using high quality ingredients and each one turned out perfect and smelling fabulous.
Lunch was great and tea and coffee was on offer throughout the course.
Overall, a really well run and good value course, which I highly recommend.

What a lovely day with great teachers. The course was very well organised and set up in a beautiful location. Everything was very well explained and the ladies running the course were helpful and there whenever you needed them. Lunch was great too!
I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who wants to try making candles. Not only will you learn a lot but you will also come home with some incredible smelling goodies that you have made in just a few hours.

Brilliant! Have just spent a wonderful half day making various candles and wax melts. The course leaders made the session informal but informative. All materials provided in a clean, Covid-safe setting. You'll be spoilt for choice when choosing the fragrances! Super refreshments too. A really enjoyable way to spend your time and come away with a great range of candles.
