Spent a truly delightful morning with Anita making containers and tapered candles. The workshop is so informative and fun, and the candles I came home with are so beautiful and smell utterly divine!
Anita talks you through everything you’d need to know during the workshop and to carry on at home on your own.
The candle alchemist studio is a wonderfully comfortable space and Anita makes such a welcoming atmosphere, you can’t help but fall in love with candle making!
What a great afternoon going home with Candles of wonderful colours. Anita is a good teacher and the workshop is a delightful building - tbh I did not think this was going to be my thing. I SO enjoyed it, so if you are in doubt Go and have a fun afternoon.
A fantastic introduction to candle making and a really enjoyable morning. We made so many beautiful candles with different colours and scents and learnt a lot in the process. Anita is a great teacher and very patient, would highly recommend!
We attended the beginners candle making course as a family of 4 ranging from ages 19 to 70 we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Anita is very knowledgable and explains everything in great detail. Her workshop is lovely with excellent facilities. We all left with beautiful candles and extremely were happy.
We had a wonderful mum and daughter morning with Anita. Anita was so knowledgeable and fun. It was a really relaxed experience and there was no pressure to be outstanding candle makers. We had a giggle and learnt some interesting techniques. Anita was wonderfully patient and talented. We loved creating our own fragrances and making candles which match our home
Interior. We would love to come back and would highly recommend
My daughter and I had a truly wonderful beginners candle making day! Anita , our wonderful teacher who was so welcoming, informative and made the whole experience really enjoyable. I’m leaving to live in America very soon, so I wanted to make some precious memories with my daughter! We definitely both did that and went away with an assortment of wonderful candles that we had made! Would highly recommend this course! Thank you Anita! Xx
I attended this workshop with two friends in September. We all thoroughly enjoyed our morning.
Anita was very informative, telling us about the various types of candle making techniques, various types of wax and about the equipment required.
We then had a go ourselves and produced a mixture of lovely goodies, having a break for tea and cake in between.
Anita encouraged us to do all the candle making ourselves, but was on hand to help if required.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this course.
Fabulous morning spent learning and making candles. Anita is a great teacher and good fun. I highly recommend this half day course for beginners, it is relaxing, fun and at the end you take home your lovely candles. Anita has a lovely shop too which sells her candles along with other crafty items at very reasonable prices. Thank you Anita it was lovely to meet you. Andy & Di
My friend and I visited Anglesey in September but our visit didn’t coincide with any of Anita’s planned beginners workshops. I emailed to see if she could do one just for the 2 of us and Anita obliged us by arranging this. We had great fun and learned a lot, including the correct way to burn a candle, thank you Anita.
The workshop was good value for money and we each left with a box of the different candles we had made. A bonus is that Anita provides refreshments free of charge for people doing a workshop :).
I was also able to do some Christmas shopping from the items Anita has available in the studio.
A great experience and one I would repeat.
Mum & I spent a wonderful few hours with Anita (& Poppy!) learning to make a selection of different candles. Neither of us had done anything similar before but Anita explained everything so well that we felt quite the experts by the end! We both thoroughly ourselves and would definitely recommend this course to anyone passing through North Wales.
My husband booked me onto the beginners candle making workshop as an anniversary gift and I had a wonderful time. Anita is very knowledgeable and a great teacher and she creates a lovely atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this.
We absolutely love candles my husband and I, and when we found a leaflet about The Candle Alchemist workshop we thought wowww! So we phoned up and spoke to a lovely lady called Anita who was so helpful. We arrived and was warmly welcomed. As soon as you walked in the sights and smells of the candles were lovely. Anita was lovely and her knowledge was amazing. We absolutely loved it, choosing our colours and fragrances and making candles from scratch. We were so proud of ourselves. It's something for adults and children. A very enjoyable couple of hrs. Definitely recommend it. Thank you Anita and Poppy for a lovely birthday xx
Best experience a person can get in North Wales. I've been to most of the attractions and I can hands down promise you that the Candle Alchemist is perfect. Activities for kids and adults alike. Fabulous teaching. No judgements whatsoever. Atmosphere is beyond friendly and accommodating. A true definition of a hidden gem.
We learnt so many interesting things about candle making from Anita whom was so welcoming and enthusiastic. Couldn't wait to get home to light our new candles.
I endeavour to take up this new hobby of ours and to visit again soon
