The Candle Alchemist Workshop & Studio on the Isle of Anglesey teaches candle making courses throughout the year. Located just 3 miles from Newborough forest and Llanddwyn beach - an area of outstanding natural beauty - it is an inspirational setting to learn the ancient craft of Candle Making.
Our classes take place in the wonderfully atmospheric, oak-beamed schoolroom, dating back to the 1800's, where you can learn practical, hands-on candle making, in a fun and relaxed environment. Our groups are kept small to allow for individual attention, and can also be taught one on one.
You will learn to make and decorate 4 candles
1 scented container candle
1 traditional pillar candle
2 sculpted flower candle
All under the expert guidance of Anita (aka The Candle Alchemist!)
Candle Making Workshops are usually run every Saturday, however dates are flexible and can be planned to suit - please get in touch.!
We also sell professional quality Candle Making Kits so you can continue with your new hobby at home.

All materials and equipment are provided for you, and at the end of the afternoon you will have 4 exquisite candles to take home and enjoy or give away as special gifts to friends and family!

We look forward to welcoming you to the wonderful art of candlemaking!
This workshop is outstanding - Anita is friendly and patient, explaining everything you wanted to know about making candles. You get to make a variety of different types, as well as having an excellent scone! Definitely recommend.
My husband and I had a fantastic afternoon out making candles. It was a fun way to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. Anita, the host is lovely and an excellent teacher and very knowledgable. The setting is gorgeous. Would thoroughly recommend this to everyone and we would go again.
I had a fabulous and very interesting afternoon making candles but also learning about all the different elements of candle making. The Old School House enormous room where it all happens is stunning too. Anita is a very knowledgeable and friendly teacher and you can see some of her wonderful work on display. I cannot recommend this experience highly enough - the candles I made were so good that my husband thought that I had bought them! That's how good a teacher Anita is.
I was lucky enough to attend one of Anita's workshops shortly before Christmas - and am so glad that I did. Under her expert and patient guidance I made a very passable Christmas Tree Candle which surprised and delighted my family as they know that I am a woman of very little talent! It was a really lovely evening . Entertaining and interesting and to top it all off a lovely selection of Christmas goodies all served on pretty China plates with tea or coffee in lovely China cups. I have already recommended the workshops to various friends and very much look forward to repeating the experience long before next Christmas.
My first attempt at candle making - I attended a Christmas Candle workshop in December together with my wife. The friendly welcome from Anita and step by step instruction made this a relaxed and enjoyable afternoon's activity. My wife and I are both delighted with the candles we made and they took pride of place on the Christmas table! I would recommend this workshop to anyone wanting a fun craftmaking afternoon - great location - and the cream tea afterwards topped it off!
Fabulous evening, had a great time. Anita was very easy to follow in her instruction and we all had real fun and laughter . l keep looking at my candle Christmas tree and feel very chuffed , will certainly be signing up for more.
Just wanted to say, how much I enjoyed your evening ,on Wednesday.
I love my Christmas tree,we all had a lot of fun making them,and they all turned out so different.
You have an ideal studio up there, really lovely.
Thank you very much.
I had never made a candle before but I was willing to learn. With Anita’s tuition I found the experience brilliant and I was really pleased with the Christmas tree candle I made. In the workshop housed in an historic building, among friends, this was an excellent way to end our WI year. The bonus of a lovely tea served on decorative china completed a memorable evening. I shall certainly recommend and hope to attend other sessions.
I went to Anita's workshop with friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We each made a Christmas tree candle and as we had never done this sort of thing before, with Anita's guidance we all felt we had achieved a new skill! The session itself was relaxed and a lot of fun. I would certainly consider attending one of her workshops again.
Haven't had such fun for many years. I never thought learning could be so enjoyable. Real hands-on learning and the most brilliant atmosphere. A great environment and the afternoon tea was an added bonus. Amazing session!
Attended a Xmas candle workshop with a group of friends and what a great time we had. Anita was very informative and helped us when needed. We had a giggle and amazed ourselves with our creations, which were all different. Look forward to going again and will definitely recommend it to my camping customers . Ideal for families or groups and you wouldn't feel out if place if you went on your own. Keep up the good work Anita :)
