About the Course
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.
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

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.

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.

Fantastic "hands on" day of learning with great hints & tips! Sakeena is a fun teacher that enables what look like complicated techniques to become simple with her teaching style. Highly recommended!

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!).
I would recommend this class to anyone.
