About the Course

Come and learn a new skill on our Candle Making Workshop using Soy Wax for some unique candle making ideas!

In this 2 1/2 hour workshop you will learn how to make your own candles for pleasure or to sell, in a fun non-formal environment.

Using an array of fragrances, essential oils, colours and containers you can match it to your mood, décor or to give away as gifts to someone special.

During this workshop you will make four different products using soy wax at our studio in London. This more than covers the cost of the course when you compare it to how much a high-end candle is priced.

The workshop covers:

Understanding wicks

Health and Safety

Colouring candles correctly

Using fragrances correctly

Finishing Touches

Decoration Techniques

Test burns and Labelling

By the end of this fun, candle making workshop, you will be able to design your own Soy Wax candles and would have made a range including:

Aromatherapy Candle (with a selection of different essential oils to suit any mood)

Cupcake Candle

Wax Melts

Massage Candle (with a selection of different essential oils to suit any mood)

You will leave the workshop with a unique array of handcrafted candles to proudly display or give away as gifts and the confidence to create many more candle making masterpieces in your own home.

Very informative and fun. Loved informal nature. Not intimidating!!!

In just a morning, I was taken through the art of making candles. A soy wax process that had me ‘candlefied’, and no questions deemed too trivial were clarified.

I will definitely be on the look-out for more of your workshops.

Sakeena, I thank you, for I have both learnt a lot about you art as well as appreciated your honest approach.
