This was a birthday present for my daughter and we both loved it. Sarah is extremely knowledgeable and a fantastic teacher. The morning was relaxed and the coffee much appreciated! Everything was well organized and I am inspired to have a go at making my own candles to give as gifts. We each came home with floating candles, a multi-coloured pillar candle, a lovely scented candle, rolled beeswax candles and tealights. I would definitely recommend this workshop.
Response from Candle by Events:Hi Louise, really pleased you both enjoyed the workshop. Thank you for your kind words.
Booked this as a birthday present for my best friend. Wanted to do something a bit different. We had an amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed listening to Sarah explain all the different processes. She is so knowledgeable. We made pillar colour candle, floating candles, perfumed tin candle and rolled beeswax candles all to take home for presents or to enjoy yourself.
The 3 hours went very quickly and would love to do another one. You will have a lovely time!
Response from Candle by Events:Thank you Carol, glad you enjoyed your candle making experience :)
Awesome course. Sarah was really knowledgeable and it was great learning the history. She provided us with lots of tips and information for us to do it on our own at home. The course was fun and we made loads of different candles which we took home. Highly recommend this course.
Response from Candle by Events:Thank you Joanne, really pleased you enjoyed the workshop :)
This session was absolutely fantastic, I couldn't have asked for more from a workshop. Sarah was engaging, extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to learn from. Everything you need is provided and you make a number of candles to take away, which was more than I have taken home on other workshops. 10/10 would recommend, you won't regret it!
Response from Candle by Events:Leila, thank you for lovely review, really pleased you enjoyed the workshop.
This is a beginners' course and yet by the end, we had all made a wide range of candles using different techniques, learnt about the different waxes, scents, colours and much more. Sarah is an excellent teacher, and took all ten of us through the processes step by step. Although every minute of the 3 hours was utilised (lots of concentration needed!) , it was also relaxed. A very professional approach, thank you Sarah!
Response from Candle by Events:Thank you Diane, really pleased you enjoyed the workshop.
What a wonderful way to spend a morning! Sarah was so warm & welcoming and explained everything so well. Such a relaxing environment, took our minds off all our worries! Our creations were so much better than I thought I'd achieve, quite a haul to bring home with me.
I would thoroughly recommend this and will definitely be booking again
Response from Candle by Events:Thank you Janet, so pleased you enjoyed the workshop.
Had such a wonderful time! So relaxed and informative. Sarah is so kind and helpful. I’ve never made candles before and was on the course with someone with far more experience but I still felt so comfortable.
Have been on a high ever since!
Response from Candle by Events:Hi Chloe, thank you for your lovely review. Keep in touch and let me know how you get on with you candle making.
A wonderful way to treat my Mum for her birthday last Saturday, we both thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. We were impressed by Sarah’s professional approach and we were able to follow the steps to create our own beautiful candles. My only slight disappointment was that the CraftCourses description of the course says that ‘homemade cakes’ would be included in the price (we didn’t see any cakes, only self-serve hot drinks) and it would have been a nice touch as it was my Mum’s birthday. However I would highly recommend the course and my Mum and I really enjoyed our first candle making experience together.
Response from Candle by Events:Hi Nadine, I am delighted you and your mum enjoyed the workshop. With regards to the "homemade cakes" we stopped serving these due to covid, but will look at introducing this again, once all restrictions have been lifted. I have now taken this out of the course description. Enjoy your candles.
A lovely way to spend a cold Saturday morning. Sarah gave us some useful tips on how to make successful candles at home. Plenty of hands on candle making and comprehensive information to take away.
Response from Candle by Events:Thank you Hilary, glad you enjoyed the workshop
Was brought this as a Christmas present and I absolutely loved it! Sarah is an excellent tutor. Am looking forward to making a lot more candles in the future.
Response from Candle by Events:Hi Nicky, really pleased you enjoyed your Christmas present :)
I’d highly recommend this course if you’re keen to learn how to make candles for fun as presents for family and friends or to start a candle business. Sarah is an inspiring and professional teacher who knows her stuff - from the history of candles, the types of wax, wicks, fragrances and colours available to the various processes and where to buy the things you need to make them at home. The 3 hour course was relaxed and fun. My 13 year old daughter and I really enjoyed it and were happy to take home a bag full of various candles we’d made ourselves!
Response from Candle by Events:Thank you Charlotte, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
What a lovely way to spend a Saturday morning! Sarah is so knowledgeable about candle making and creates such a warm and welcoming atmosphere. You come away from the course having made a lovely array of candles and feeling very able to tackle making some candles at home. Thank you Sarah!
Response from Candle by Events:Thank you Rose, really pleased you enjoyed the workshop.
I had a lovely day, in a lovely relaxed atmosphere,with the friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable Sarah. I would definitely recommend this class to all types of crafters, including men. Will definitely be looking to attend future classes.
Brilliant course, my step-daughter and I learnt so much, all whilst having a brilliant time bonding.
The course taught us so much including melting, dying and fragrance.
We enjoyed it so much, and learnt so much, we plan to buy ourselves a kit and continue as a hobby at home!
I completed this course with my stepdaughter (11) and we both absolutely loved it.
Sarah was very friendly, gave so much detail on the science and a clear structure through the making process.
We both made some really beautiful candles. And I’ve already booked to return for the Christmas workshop!
Brilliant course. Sarah is so knowledgable! There was enough theory to I stand the process & came home with a great array of candles! Definitely looking at doing a festive course
Response from Candle by Events:Hi Jess, really pleased you enjoyed the workshop, you would be welcome to one of our Christmas workshops! Kind regards, Sarah
The workshop was awesome. I just loved everything about the workshop including the ambience, the colours, fragrance and above all Sarah's expertise in the subject. Thank you Sarah!!!
Response from Candle by Events:Thank you Jay, really pleased you enjoyed the workshop.
A great way to spend a Sunday morning. Sarah is a very personable trainer who made the workshop fun and relaxing. I attended the class on my own with 3 other ladies I was made to feel very welcome and included in the chat. Following the workshop Sarah was very helpful and quick to come back with some questions I had. I'd definitely like to go to one of the Christmas workshops next. Thank you :)
I thoroughly enjoyed this course. Sarah is an excellent tutor, really thorough and I learnt so much. It is also informal and great fun. It is really worth doing whether it is just to learn a new skill or to start a business. Highly recommend.
Response from Candle by Events:Thank you Stephanie, really pleased you enjoyed the workshop.
Sarah was very professional, personable and attentive. Sarah made the course enjoyable, relaxing and very informative. She really gave me confidence to continue making fantastic candles at home. I have attended numerous craft courses over the years and Sarah is easily the most engaging person who clearly wants to deliver a memorable experience.
Response from Candle by Events:Wow, thank you Helen for such a lovely review, really pleased you enjoyed the workshop. Happy candle-making.
