We are the candle-making experience company. The company was started by Sarah Ditchfield, who has a HR & training background. Following a candle-making Christmas present she received one year Sarah discovered a passion for candle-making and later combined this with her experience in training and development to set up Candle by Events. Today the company runs candle-making events, parties and workshops across the UK. Sarah's second book "Making Candles" was published in April 2017 by Search Press.
I went on the candle making course on 4 February and was delighted in the way in which Sarah who took the class made you feel at ease and also made you feel that you were able to get great results in making the candles. It was a completely relaxed atmosphere with an intimate class which is ideal if you feel self conscious. I will certainly start making my own candles from now on as it has given me the confidence I needed.
What was also great was that you were able to take home your creations and I would certainly highly recommend taking the course. Thank you Sarah
I went on a candle-making course ran by Sarah on 24 February. It was my first experience with candle-making but really interesting and fun. First we learnt about all about the different sorts of waxes before trying our hand at making different types of candles. Sarah's clear instructions and waxes readily to hand made the whole process really easy. The group was small enough to ensure everyone could follow what happening and we all enjoyed comparing our results! Thanks Sarah for a great morning.
I just wanted to say thank you for the workshop the other day, I really enjoyed it! I enjoyed it so much that I now want to make candles properly and sell them.
This workshop was one of the best workshops I have been to in the last year, really enjoyed it.
