About the Course

Held at ‘The Chantry’ in the lovely market town of Thornbury just 12 miles north of Bristol.

We will give you the basic skills to create 3 different styled, scented, container candles made from 100% natural soy wax and a selection of fragrance oils.

Our groups are kept small (a maximum of 8) to allow for individual attention.

The afternoon was brilliant! Lindsey was very organised, explained and demonstrated things clearly, created a friendly, relaxed environment, and made sure that everyone was included and had everything they needed to produce three beautiful candles. My car smelled wonderful all the way home!
This course was well worth travelling to. Thank you so much Lindsey!
