The kit was excellent and includes a nice variety - a pillar candle, a fragranced container candle and a rolled beeswax candle, so there are three different projects to learn. Dyes and fragrances are also included as well as a handy pan, for double boiling, and thermometer. Sarah is so generous with her knowledge. I've gone back to her to ask her many more questions since the class and she has always been very happy to help with where to get supplies and how to fix some of the problems I've encountered when experimenting with new candle ideas.

Response from Candle by Events:

Thank you Angie, really pleased you enjoyed the kit.

Done the online course due to isolation events and am so glad I did. My world has been opened up to candle making!

I’m new to it and want to eventually sell wax tarts. The course covers many variety of candles and the live workshop was fantastic - I felt like I was in the actual workshop with Sarah! I ordered the online candle making which included the kit (which was very generous and everything you need to get started and more).

Sarah is thorough and patient, and I thought it’s great that she has Q&A after every section of the course completed.

Can’t wait to do the advance course.

Thank you Sarah 🕯
