Virtual Candle Making Masterclass and Kit - London Refinery Studio

Pouring the soy wax at our workshops

About the Course

We are holding our candle online workshop live from the London Refinery Studio in Ealing. We will send you a starter candle making kit and talk you through the whole candle making process in our live online class.

The class will last for about 1.5 hours and will be hosted by Lucy Heale, the Founder of The London Refinery. You will start by learning about how your sense of smell works and how fragrance affects your mood and emotions. You will then learn about the different fragrance families and what top, heart and base notes are. You will then use the 'Relax' blend of lavender and rose geranium essential oils* to blend into your own soy wax candle. You will start by heating the wax, blending of the oils, and finish with pouring your own 120ml candle all in your own home.

You can follow Lucy as she takes you through the whole candle making process and will be available for questions after the live class. We will also send you a 'how-to' film to watch afterwards too.

Live Feed using Zoom.

*If you would prefer to receive a 'Revitalise' essential oil blend (grapefruit, bergamot and lemongrass) please let me know (using the 'Ask a question' button)

This was a wonderful experience - the course was conducted with live online tuition using a craft kit previously posted to us (which was gorgeous). Lucy was a fantastic teacher - warm, engaging, encouraging and knowledgable. She gave us loads of really helpful tips. This 'stay at home' course certainly ignited my passion for essential oils and candle making, not to mention the fact that I felt socially connected again. Thanks Lucy :-)

Response from The London Refinery:

Thank you so much Alex.
