Forget the same old experience days and come and learn a new skill on our 1 day Candle Making Workshop!
We offer the best value for money candle making workshop in the UK!
We teach you how to make your own candles for pleasure or to sell, in a fun non-formal environment.
Using a wide array of fragrances, colours and containers you can match it to your mood, décor or to give away as gifts.
On average you will make around eight candles on the day, which more than covers the cost of the course when you compare it to how much a high-end candle is priced.
You will learn how to use a number of different waxes and scents to create stunning candles and how to decorate the exterior of your candles.
The workshop covers:
Types of waxes
Health and Safety
Colouring candles correctly
Using fragrances correctly
Test burns and Labelling
Most candle making workshops only teach one method for the same price we are offering. But by the end of this fun candle making workshop, you will be able to design your own candles and would have made a full range including:
Free Standing Chunk Candle
Aromatherapy Candle (with a selection of different essential oils to suit any mood)
Hand Rolled Candles
Scented Container Candles
You will leave the workshop with a unique array of handcrafted candles to proudly display or give away as gifts and the confidence to create many more in your own home.
We also stock a large selection of waxes, colouring, scents and containers that can be purchased on the day, so that you can dazzle your friends and family and practice your new found skills at home.
What's included in the price?
Tools and materials are included in the course fee. As well as a day of fun and giggles!
It was very enlightening and the methods of teaching were very easy to grasp. I love the ethics code subtly advised as I believe this will help with growing my business. I really enjoyed the creativity the class allowed me and I'll be back for the advanced classes. Thank you!
This course is excellent. I love the practical element and the fact that I was making lovely candles before the end of the day. I am inspired to come for a lot more and I have no hesitation recommending this to any one else.
Fascinating. I truly enjoyed every minute and time flew by! Very lucky to attend one of your classes and meet such a lovely and inspiring person like you. Very relaxing experience and great value for money. Came all the way from Egypt to do this and it was totally worth it! I am very happy and satisfied with this course. Can't wait to try it back home!
It's the most amazing experience I've ever had. Mixture of learning, creating, discovering new talents in my self and making what I love with the most respected teacher. Thank you so much for your time and effort and passion that you delivered it to us.
Sakeena was an excellent tutor - she was clear, demonstrative, firm and an excellent teacher. I loved how she checked our understanding at the end. She also did all of the above with an enjoyable sense of humour. Thank you so much!
I wanted to let you know that you are doing great job! Afterwards I had another course booked in very very central London with one of the top candle makers in business, but I learned all techniques better with you. The demonstration, explanation and communication was great! Very clear and understanding, and if I had any questions, they were answered!
Sakeena was an amazing teacher, so friendly and helpful. We enjoyed every second of the course and learnt so much! Thank you for an amazing and informative day! I cannot wait to try and make candles at home.
The course was brilliant. I enjoyed it very much. It made me feel confident to start my business. All the questions I had were answered very clearly. I'm very happy with this course. Lovely to meet you.
Was not sure what to expect but it surpassed my expectations. Really enjoyed the experience. It was such a fun day but learnt a lot about making candles. Looking forward to getting home and experimenting.
I have looked forward to coming on this course for some time and it certainly met my expectations. I absolutely loved the course, Sakeena was an amazing teacher, it was so much fun and really informative. I have come away with lots of beautiful candles and look forward to making some more when I go home.
Excellent. Covered so much. In-depth. Motivating. Feels like the beginning of something. Very practical. Not swamped with boring info. Loved it. Thank you so much. Very personal. Best Christmas present ever.
The workshop was so much fun and I feel as though I have learnt such a huge amount in a fairly short space of time. Sakeena was personable and a great teacher, and it was an extra treat to take home a load of our own handmade candles!!
It opened my mind and got the creative juices flowing. I can't wait to go off and do my own candles as presents and/or to sell. It was great that we did different types of candles so we could see the possibilities. Also enjoyed the small group.
Thank you for such a wonderful fun experience. I really enjoyed your workshop and keen to get on board with another.
Sekeena - you have such a wonderful story on your journey to where you are today, thank you for sharing this with all in the class. Candle making is just so much fun and you were very patient with us all. I'd highly recommend this class.
A great days candle making, thank you Sakeena for sharing your knowledge in such a fun and relaxed environment. It was an excellent course , I left feeling confident and truly inspired by your enthusiasm, can't wait to get started.
Once again thank you.
I have been on another course and this was 100% better. Sakeena is a great teacher and I learned so much in one day as well as having a had great time. Perfect cominbination. If you want to learn to make candles this is the place for you.
I received this candle making workshop as a gift and I have got to say it was just as fun as I was hoping it would be. Sakeena was a fantastic teacher with a great humour which really made the day enjoyable! I've learnt a variety of techniques and how to use different waxes and scents and I am now planning to stock up on my own supplies in time to sell them for Christmas. This workshop covered so many different ways to make candles that I now have the confidence to start creating my own. Thank you Sakeena I will defiantly be back for the intermediate workshop!
Very enjoyable day. Course itself was run in an accessible and informative way, left with ability to use the strategies straight away and with confidence. Candles made on the day were of high quality and the wide range of both styles and types of wax used added to range of experience given. I would recommend this day to those with a love of candles whether interested in making their own longer term (for themselves or as gifts to others or business) or just wanting to know more about how candles are made. It was great value for money.
I really enjoyed my day with Sakeena at the candle workshop, it was really fun and relaxing at the same time and I learnt a lot. I went on my own but I can imagine it would be a lovely thing to do with friends as well. I will definitely be looking out for more classes to do with Sakeena! Highly recommended :)
Absolutely fantastic workshop and Sakeena is just brilliant! We had a hands-on day and made a variety of candles using different techniques which we then took home with us. This class is both informative and fun, I really feel inspired!
Absolutely amazed at what I made. The workshop was informative and very in-depth. Sakeena is a great teacher and is so willing to share her knowledge. The candles turned out great and I'm so glad I attended.
I had a gorgeous few hours making candles and learning all about how to make them in the future. As well as beautiful candles, you also come away with a comprehensive guide which summarises everything you have been taught. Sakeena is a great tutor - passionate about candle making - and really keen to share her ideas and skills to give you the confidence to make candles after the course. I was a complete beginner but am now planning on making some for all the tables at my sister's wedding.
I really enjoyed the course. Sakeena is a great tutor, full of enthusiasm and knowledge. I arrived home with my candles which have made my house smell delicious. I feel really inspired to produce my own range of candles. Many thanks Sakeena.
As a first timer who has started 1 month ago doing this myself in advance to attending the course, Sakeena with her font of knowledge, history and experience of candlemaking, made me feel fully confident that I am heading in the right direction and chosen the right skill that will continue to enhance my creativity. The workshop was a very informative in a friendly environment, every question I posed was answered and clarified. Overall a fun workshop, which I will gladly encourage others to attend.
I had a great time and was surprised at how much we learnt and accomplished in one day. The pace of the course is just right, and you get to take away a great selection of candles and melts you've made yourself. Really good fun, and I'm looking forward to applying what I learnt at home.
Really great workshop. Lots of techniques are taught and practised, so you feel confident to go home and try them on your own by the end of the day. I took home some lovely smelling candles I'd made, to show to family and friends! The teacher has a lot of experience and can answer any questions you have.
Absolutely great value for money. Not only is it a fun, relaxing day, but you come away with knowledge to continue making candles on your own in a way that more than pays off the price of the course. Great class sizes and a very patient teacher, especially considering everyone in the course was new to candle making. Will definitely be going back for an intermediate level course.
It was a great experience interacting with the Lumiere team, they were accommodating to my date change needs without any hassles.
The one day workshop was fun and aptly designed for someone with no candle making experience before. Sakeena no doubt is a great teacher with always a smile on the face and willing to answer all questions even the irritating ones at time. :)
All in all a great fun workshop.
I would highly recommend this course. It left me inspired, enthused, relaxed and gave me a sense of achievement at the lovely candles I made and took home. My home has scented and coloured candles which give a beautiful ambience. The tutor was friendly, knowledgeable and patient with me. I totally enjoyed it and cannot wait to book my next course with Lumieres de Londres. It was good value for money and a lovely experience.
Excellent course - I would highly recommend it. Sakeena is very knowledgable and excellent, patient teacher who makes the whole session lots of fun. I have done the introductory and intermediate candle classes and have booked natural remedies.
Attended this course today and can't stop raving about it and what I've learnt and my candles that I've brought away with me.
Sakeena and Karina are lovely ladies and Karina was brilliant in the course delivery. It was a very relaxed atmosphere and we had cake too! Can't wait to go back for the Introductory Course. Thank you again ladies.
I attended the Introductory course in May this year and absolutely loved it. There were only 5 of us on the course which meant that our extremely patient teacher Sakeena was able to give us very individual attention. The selection of candles we made was really good, and totally inspired me to experiment when I got home. I have been making candles at home through the summer, and this week attended the intermediate course. This was a one day, one-to-one course which was brilliant. Sakeena taught me various processes to allow me to produce an array of extremely professional looking pillar candles. I would definitely recommend both courses - Sakeena is an excellent teacher and a lovely lady!
This really is a great course if you wish to learn all about candle making; it covers so much and you really do learn all that you need to know to go solo. I had a fabulous day and felt totally inspired by the experience and cannot wait to make my own products. Sakeena is a lovely lady and an excellent teacher and I am thrilled that I made the effort to go on this course - I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who is thinking about it!!
Sakeena is a great teacher. This course focuses on the doing rather than the listening. After a few introductions we got started straight away. I learnt some really fun techniques that you just can't learn without the face to face teaching.
I took away some lovely smelling candles, and put my new skills to the test that afternoon. Great fun and highly recommended
Amazing! This course is the best course I've been on in a very long time and is the best one day course I've ever attended. In just 6 hours Sakeena teaches the skills and practical knowledge needed to go home and start making candles immediately. The workshop if fun, interactive and you produce lots of candle of various types and sizes and using different types of wax. On top of this, Sakeena is lovely, inspiring, patient and extremely talented. I will definitely be booking onto the intermediate class!
Sakeena provides the most wonderful course. She is phenomenally patient, creative and inspirational. I literally haven't stopped making candles since and love it even more than I could have imagined! This is all owed to having such a memorable and fun experience.
Amazing value for money! I went with a few friends for a girls day out and throughly enjoyed every minute of it. From the moment we enquired to actually making the booking we were given a very professional service and they were very accommodating with their dates (we had to reschedule a few times).
Sakeena the tutor was an ocean of knowledge and very patient with all our questions. The day seemed to pass by very quick, in between making candles, chatting and having a really fun time (Yes, Sakeena joined in aswell!).
