About the Course
Personalised Christmas Candles with Ruth Martin from Cucumberwood Candles
On this candle-making workshop you will be making 4 x 90g personalised glass or tin container candles, perfect for Christmas presents or a treat for yourself! You will be hands-on in the whole process of candle making, from melting the wax, adding the essential oils (from a selection of my blends), to preparing the containers and pouring the wax.
If you would like to personalise your containers please let me know the wording you would like – I will contact you 10 days before the course to confirm your words so that I have labels printed and ready for you on the day. On the glass containers, the personalised labels are on the side of the jar; on the tins the personalised labels are on the lid.
I’ll share my knowledge about essential oils and lots of hints and tips. It’s a fun and relaxing session, you can’t make candles quickly - the wax melts at its own pace, and as the candles set we get the chance to have a well-earned cuppa and home-made chocolate brownies!
