Nicole Eyres reviewed: Candle Making Workshop with Bilsington Priory Afternoon Tea

"Had the absolute best time doing this masterclass. I went with my mum for a birthday treat and it was just the best day. We learnt lots of things we didn’t know about candles as well as getting to make our own to take home. The whole class was very organised and Karen also really explained things well and answered any questions we had. She made us feel comfortable and have fun learning a new process. She also provided champagne to celebrate my birthday (and another guest who also was celebrating a birthday) with our delicious afternoon tea and I thought that was such a lovely touch. Really enjoyed the day and couldn’t recommend it enough."

Lesley Eyres reviewed: Candle Making Workshop with Bilsington Priory Afternoon Tea

"This course was bought as a gift for my daughter's birthday and as we arrived at Bilsington Priory we knew it was going to be special. The day started with Karen explaining the course content and the materials we were going to use ... and then the fun began. We chose fragrances from a large selection and were led step-by-step through the process of making a container candle, candle in a tin and botanical wax decorations, all the time learning about the different wax properties and appropriate wicks. While the candles were setting we were treated to a yummy afternoon tea and were even given doggy-bags to take some of the cakes home! Back to the classroom we labelled our candles and tied ribbons on the wax decorations. Karen is such a great tutor, she was friendly and explained everything clearly and professionally. I would highly recommend this course to anyone."

Sue & Sam reviewed: Candle Making Workshop with Bilsington Priory Afternoon Tea

"We finally arrived at a wonderful location - a year late for obvious reasons. Location rustic, rural and full of history. Great relaxed atmosphere and course took place inside the Priory. Karen welcomed us with unlimited drinks. Introductions over Karen gave a chat on candle care and burning techniques (I never realised there was a procedure to allow a candle to burn flat!) A delightful afternoon tea (both vegetarian and classic) served in a comfortable, sunny, conservatory by Libby who is a pleasure to chat with. My daughter and I shared a lovely day together, laughing, in good company and making some beautiful candles to take home. Thank you Karen for persevering with the dates, making us all feel comfortable and sharing your talent"

The Aromatic Candle Co responded:

" Sue & Sam, what can i say but thank you so so much for your patience! It was an absolute delight to meet you both at last and I'm thrilled that you had a lovely day. Bilsington Priory is a stunning location, a bit of escapism from daily life! I hope you enjoy your creations and hope we meet again in the future. Best Wishes Karen"
