Really loved the course on Saturday, it was great fun, really interesting and well planned out. I was delighted with the candles I made and certainly interested to experiment more at home. Would recommend this course to anyone who loves candles or is a bit creative. Anne is a lovely tutor who was happy to answer any questions.
Really enjoyed meeting Anne and attending candle making course today. Everything was well explained and I learnt lots. Very well spaced out and covid safe.
This is the second workshop with Anne that I have attended, as I enjoyed the workshop earlier this year so much, that I booked a space on the Christmas candle-making workshop as soon as I could. A friend saw what I had created at the first workshop and asked if she could come along too and really enjoyed it herself. Anne is very knowledgeable and gives very clear instructions, which are very easy to follow. She also has a great selection of scents and colours and glitter for that extra bit of Christmas sparkle.
I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who likes candles. Hastoe Village Hall is a great venue too.
I cannot recommend highly enough this course, Anne is such a lovely person who made the course such an enjoyable relaxing day. She showed us how to make candles from the beginning to being able to take away our own delightfully scented and good quality candles. Her teaching method was perfect very easy to follow. A great value course I have recommended to friends. I actually have been twice on my own and this is a suitable event for individuals or friends. Very welcoming and friendly even if you attend alone.
Thoroughly enjoyed the workshop & learnt a lot about the candle making process. Anne was very knowledgeable & answered any questions I had.
Would highly recommend this & will definitely be returning!
Thanks again, Charlotte.
A superb morning spent with Anne. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole process of candle making. Anne’s manner of teaching was superb-patient and clear. The choice of scents to add to our candles was extensive and it was good to be using eco-friendly ingredients. I couldn’t believe how much Anne fitted into the workshop and we all went home with more candles than I had imagined we would make in the time. I would thoroughly recommend this course and would be keen to do another in the future.
Anne is very knowledgeable and very patient. Had a lovely relaxing morning and really pleasing results. Will set you up to take further or just enjoy for fun. Would highly recommend to anyone just give it a go you will be surprised at what you can do!
Had a fun morning making some lovely scented candles to take home. Anne was happy to answer all our questions and share her knowledge. Will definitely be making more now i have the confidence and would recommend the lesson to any beginners.
Attended this course this morning with my sister, and very enjoyable it was!
Anne was very friendly and answered all our questions with a smile on her face.
We didn't realise how much there was to learn, melting points, different wicks, right temperatures for adding colour and fragrances and much more!
Another brilliant workshop with Anne, this time making Christmas candles. She was so helpful and informative and it is really exciting to take such a range of candles home. I will definitely be returning next year for another course.
Wow! What a fabulous way to spend a Saturday morning! Anne was amazing, very patient and knowledgeable. She explained and re-explained as many times as we needed. The way the course was delivered was paced brilliantly. We made a bit of everything too, which kept it exciting.
I honestly can’t recommend this course enough. As a beginner I feel completely comfortable to have a try on my own after this session.
Everyone was friendly, kind and helpful. The tea and cake was a delightful little touch! I would certainly book onto another course run by Anne.
Thank you so much Anne!
I went to do this course with my friend. We really enjoyed doing this very informative and friendly course with Ann.
We have been overwhelmed with her generosity both in terms of her willingness to share her knowledge and the amazing amount of creations you take away from the classes. Ann is a great tutor and we've learned so much on that day.

This workshop is brilliant. Anne is a lovely, friendly lady and teacher.
Loved the variety of candles we got to make and that we could choose our own scents and colours.
Can’t wait to put it into practice at home.
Thank you Anne x
We had a wonderful morning with Anne, it was just what we needed to to relax whilst learning something new! Anne is a great host and teacher, taking care to explain things and friendly and warm too. I would highly recommend Ann
This course was excellent!
Having done lots of research online about candle making I decided there were just too many contradictions about what you should and shoulder do, which resulted in my having questions about every stage of the process that really needed to be answered by someone who fully understood what happens and why.
I attended this course early October 2020, and everything was COVID-Secure.
Everything was set out for individual learning, and practical-based: there was no handbook to follow, just listening and doing which was great. (You do get a handbook by email after the course.) There was plenty of opportunity to ask questions, no matter how stupid they may have seemed to me (Ann didn't let oif they were stupid). Very importantly I got to smell every candle scent Ann had, which I know will have saved me a fortune in mis-purchased scents as what you think you're going to like you actually dont, and vice versa.
I came home with a pillar candle, a jar candle, a tin candle, three metal tealights, two shaped tealights and six wax melts.
By the end of the course I went away quite confident that i could make candles by myself without harming myself or the intended recipients, which is the best outcome you could want!
Very happy, and excellent value for money.
Thank you Ann!
I loved this class. Anne was very generous with her knowledge and we learned as many techniques as she could fit in the time! We learned pillar candles in moulds, container candles, tea lights, wax melts and how to add colours, fragrances and glitter! I had a wonderful time, thank you.
Had a really enjoyable session, Ann is a very patient and informative teacher. Thrilled to bring home a variety of candles. Will definitely be booking another class with Ann.
A lovely morning spent with my daughter, while Anne taught us about candle making, very informative. We made a variety of candles, coloured and scented, which be brought home. A real pleasure to meet Anne, can’t thank her enough.
I had a fantastic morning at Anne’s workshop. We made a variety of candles using different techniques and were able to take them all home to burn. Anne was really welcoming and answered all my questions as well as sharing her knowledge with us. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for future courses.
I had a personal lesson with Anne before Christmas and the lesson was excellent. Due to various reasons I haven't been able to make any candles as yet, however I am confident with the guidance notes that Anne provided that I will be able to give this a go and get creative. We made some lovely festive candles and I thoroughly enjoyed this creative lesson. Would highly recommend Anne's class and look forward to attending some future workshops.
