Brilliant afternoon in the little blue shed, lovely friendly environment. Diane is very patient and took the time to explain everything. I came away with a lovely candle and wax melts, would highly recommend a visit.

Spent a lovely afternoon in this quaint little craft shed, Diane has the patience of a saint and is so knowledgeable about candle making.
I love that everything had been thought about so it was more environmentally friendly and it was a fantastic way to spend an afternoon and I absolutely loved making my own candle complete with colour and scent!

Response from Creative Path Crafts:

Katy, so pleased you enjoyed yourself and that everything was to your liking. We have some new and exciting courses coming soon so keep a look out.

What a wonderful way to spend a day! Diane was absolutely lovely & not only took us through the candle-making process step by step, but made us feel very welcome & at home. The shed is dreamy : ) I'd quite happily live in there & it's surrounded by a beautiful garden which is highly inspiring to work in. The candle I came away with smells divine and looks beautiful... I'm keeping the candle but I've given some of the wax melts (which were an added bonus) to friends so that they can enjoy the scent too : )

Response from Creative Path Crafts:

Hi Danielle,
So pleased you found our workshop and garden inspiring, I so lucky to have such a lovely place to work and live.

Had a fab afternoon with Diane. Her little blue shed is a great environment to learn a new craft. Diane is a super teacher and we all came away with a lovely smelling candle and wax melts, beautifully presented and gift wrapped. Highly recommend

Response from Creative Path Crafts:

Hi Christine,
I'm pleased to see that you thought I was a good teacher, its something I've done for years.
We like people to have the full experience here, going away well fed and with well presented candles.
Keep a look out for our new courses coming soon.
