A great way to spend a couple of hours with like minded people. Sarah was very knowledgeable about candle making and was very encouraging. My kitchen smelt amazing.
Response from Candle by Events:Thank you Jan, I am delighted you enjoyed the workshop :)
A really brilliant course. It was given to me as a Christmas present and what a fantastic experience!
The kit was very well packed and included everything needed for the session. Sarah was very friendly, her explanations clear, her subject knowledge impressive. We all made a pillar candle, a container candle and rolled three candles with beeswax sheets, so felt a great sense of achievement. We had a homework assignment- to make some tea lights, which I did the following morning.
Now I’m really looking forward to continue with my newfound hobby and make some gifts for my family and friends.
Thank you Sarah.
Response from Candle by Events:Thank you Nadia, so pleased you enjoyed the workshop. Keep in touch and let me know how you get.
I done this course with Sarah and a few other ladies which was great . Sarah made sure we were all sorted with our things and gave explanations into everything. Sarah takes her time telling you instructions and waits until we're all fully aware of what we're doing. Will defo be recommending Sarah thanks again and i hope we can all keep in touch. My 12 year old daughter wants to do it as well so it would be great to do it together.
Response from Candle by Events:Hi Amanda, thank you for your kind comments, glad you and your daughter enjoyed the workshop.
I completed the beginners’ candle making course online via Zoom. It was so much fun and I now have a brand new skill that I can’t wait to keep practising. Sarah was a great teacher, very clear, approachable and patient and she shared her fantastic advice and knowledge with us. Thank you very much!
Response from Candle by Events:Thank you, keep in touch and let me know how you get on!
Bought this as a gift present and then bought myself one as it looked so inviting
Was not disappointed! Well presented easy instructions and very relaxing. 3 hrs flew by.
Lovely choice of candles made to bring home. Thank you
Response from Candle by Events:Thank you Bridget, glad you enjoyed the workshop
What a lovely way to spend an afternoon, and I've already made my first candles at home this weekend! Would highly recommend, Sarah clearly has a wealth of experience and knowledge which she generously shares both on the course and if you want to carry on candle making at home.
Response from Candle by Events:Hi Sam, so pleased you started making candles at home. Stay in touch and let me know how you get on.
Fantastic course. Thoroughly enjoyed it and can’t wait to start making some candles at home and see how I go. Sarah was a brilliant teacher and good fun. The class was really informative and answered questions about how much fragrance to use, the different types of waxes on the market etc... Would highly recommend her courses!
Response from Candle by Events:Thank you Samantha for your kind words. Best wishes, Sarah
This was a thoroughly fun and informative course which I left with enough confidence to carry on at home if I wished. I will probably do another workshop in the future
Response from Candle by Events:Thank you, glad you enjoyed the workshop. Best wishes, Sarah
I attended the beginners candle-making course today and am absolutely delighted with what I made! Sarah is very patient and doesn’t rush you. I’d highly recommend going on one of her courses!
Response from Candle by Events:Thank you Mel, really pleased you enjoyed the workshop. Stay in touch and keep me posted on your candle-making journey!
I cannot recommend this course highly enough! Sarah really made this a very enjoyable and informative session and I am now very keen to go onto her Intermediate course. If you are concerned about keeping social distancing etc, it was laid out to a very high standard - there were clear divisions between groups/face masks/visors and loads of hand gel etc. Course was followed up with an email with all the information you need to continue at home and there is continued support if you need it.
Thank you Sarah
Response from Candle by Events:Thank you for your lovely review, look forward to seeing you at the intermediate workshop :)
Very professional approach. Steps clearly explained and workshop environment enabled learning by doing! Workshop well re-engineered to be COVID friendly. Close to 3 hours, which was just right for a beginners course. Good supporting material and follow-up advice.
Response from Candle by Events:Mike, thank you for your feedback, glad you enjoyed the workshop
Thoroughly enjoyed this class with my daughter. Sarah had made it a thoroughly safe environment to work in given current covid climate. There was a nice welcome and a nice cup of tea offered. She explained all the stages very well enabling us to create tea lights, pillar candle, floating candles and a tinned candle. She introduced us to adding colour and perfume. I will certainly take home my new knowledge to make candles at home. Thanks Sarah x
Response from Candle by Events:Thank you Linda, really pleased you enjoyed the workshop.
I had my reservations about signing up for an online craft workshop, but these were soon forgotten once the course started. Sarah's passion for candlemaking is obvious and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. I was particularly inspired by Sarah's suggestions on different containers that could be used for candles and a number of bottle tops and other objects have now been upcycled and given a new lease of life.
Response from Candle by Events:Thank you Dave, really pleased you enjoyed the workshop.
I took part in a zoom workshop run by Sarah. She conducted the workshop very professionally. She was also very knowledgable in candle making. Her kit had everything in it and everything was packed well and the wax was all weighted into packages. She guided us step by step how to make each type of candle and gave us some very insightful knowledge on how to pick the right type of wick and how much wax and fragrance to use, and the various types of dye. I had a very enjoyable time learning how to make candles and I would recommend this workshop to anyone who would like to learn a new skill.
She is also very helpful and answers question even after the workshop is over. She does not leave you high and dry to figure out things on your own after the workshop. I am happy to have met her as she has been very helpful in my pursuit to learn the skills of candle making.
Response from Candle by Events:Hi Suzie, thank you for your kind words, really pleased you enjoyed the workshop.
I absolutely loved making these candles! Such fun and the step by step guide was easy to follow and beautifully written!
Not only do you get beautiful homemade candles that you can show off to your friends, you get to learn a fun new skill!
- oh and the snapdragon fragrance is AMAZING!
Vey pleased with my candles and I'll definitely be making more in future!
Response from Candle by Events:So pleased you enjoyed the kit and you found the step by step guide easy to follow :)
Myself and my mum had booked on to a candle course but due to the current pandemic it was obviously cancelled. We took the offer of transferring to this online course and we are so happy we did. We are officially hooked on candle making. The kit comes with all the bits you need and what isn’t in the kit is found around your home for example a measuring jug. A complete printed guide is accompanied by the online videos which gave clear instruction on what we had to do. I cannot wait to try more and play with my new found creative skill. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for an intro in to this craft. Thank you Sarah.
Response from Candle by Events:So glad you enjoyed the online workshop and you have discovered a new hobby :)
