Great course, great value for money (when you think about the products you bring home too!) I'd never been on a candle making course before so was great to try something different - I'm always looking for something new to try and this was recommended. I'd recommend if you're looking to try different craft activities.

Had a great time with my family prior to Christmas making some wonderful candles which we are now enjoying. Good activity to do as a group and informative too. As we were all one family we do now have quite a lot of the candles! However all smell wonderful and we enjoyed choosing our own fragrance for the large candle so we do have some variety.

Absolutely fab! We had such fun, a lovely candle company, fabulous products and fragrances and we're still enjoying them now - highly recommended if you're looking for something new and interesting to try (as we were!)

Myself and 2 friends attended one of these courses in the run up to christmas - we had an amazing time, very relaxed and informal - Matthew was great, and we made some beautiful fragrance products.

I'd highly recommend this course, if you're looking for something different to do, it was our first time and we're already discussing dates to go back in spring!

Mathew was great. The session was informative, interesting and informal which I like when it comes to workshops.

It was fabulous getting to know more about a local indie business. Also it is such value for money. Not only is it an heavenly scented experience you get to make so many elements that are for keeps.

We made 4 variations of products that Urban Candle Co stock so it felt like a bit of a behind the scenes tour of the process too.

Definitely recommend as a fun group activity and as an alternative to Christmas wreath making if you are wanting a festive outing.
