Join us for a jolly winter afternoon of candle crafting over a glass of mulled wine and a homemade mince pie. During the workshop you’ll learn how to make both taper and pillar candles using sheets of beautifully smelling beeswax. You can then decorate the candles with pretty hearts, flowers and stars before wrapping them in paper and raffia all ready to give as presents (or of course keep them for yourself!). You’ll each be given enough materials to make two pairs of taper candles and also 2 pillar candles. No prior experience of candle making is needed at all. All materials and refreshments are included. We’re very happy to run this class as a bespoke party or as an alternative festive celebration for companies. Just mail us on craft@handmadeworkshops.co.uk for more information. “what a lovely afternoon – I’ve now got some wonderful candles for Christmas presents” “a relaxing pre-Christmas treat.
