We had a lovely time at the workshop, which was fantastically led and brilliant value. Would definitely recommend to friends and family
I recently attended Wendy's workshop in candle making, as I'm an avid candle fan and wondered if I could master making my own. Wendy's teaching style is gently relaxed and patient, with pleasant music in the background and great coffee.
I soon created an assortment of candles in different styles and colours, but it was rolling beeswax candles that really set me afire...I loved the natural scent and appearance of my creations.
Her workshop has given me the confidence to have a bash at home and has set my creative tastebuds tingling.
Thank you so much.
Our candle making session was a fun, informative and really enjoyable afternoon and I made 8 candles to take home!
I did Wendy's candle-making course and loved it. We all went away with 7 candles, learnt a load of techniques we can use at home to make some more and had a fun afternoon with some lovely people. I am going back for more of Wendy's classes.
A very relaxing afternoon spent learning about the basics of candle making. As well as coming away with some lovely little candles to light at home, I'm enthused to have another go at making some on my own.
Such a fun course and absolutely fascinating to be able to produce so much in such a short period of time. Very relaxed atmosphere and very very enjoyable.
I really enjoyed this class which was well run, giving lots of advice and encouragement. My son has already bagged two of my candles!
