Absolutely Fantastic Course - 5stars!!! We thoroughly enjoyed our day & would totally recommend to anyone considering doing this course! Great value for money. Rob is a great guy (knows his stuff). On the day we made container candles, scented candles, pillar candles & tapered candles. We were very happy with the results & were able to bring our candles home afterwards. Rob was kind, patient & hospitable (made us tea & even got Kit Kat’s in) He’s a wonderful teacher, kind & patient. A truly wonderful experience - My Girls & I enjoyed every moment! Thanks Rob x
Response from The Wax Studio:Hi Karen,
This was a great course. We went home with lots of lovely candles including moulded, tall dipped and scented ones in containers. I learned so much from Rob and would really recommend it. Afterwards we went to eat at Farmers Fayre, Stoneleigh. A lovely day out.
Thank you so much for a brilliant morning attending the candle making work shop.
Fun and informative and being able to be your creative self , learning from the master himself , Rob.
Rob explained the different steps of candle making at an easy pace of understanding. How the process comes together, from choosing your moulds, types of wax, wicks , fragrances, melting , calculations, poring and leaving to set.
Having the confidence came away with five different types of candles .
Thank you again.
Response from The Wax Studio:Hi Susan,
I had a such a lovely day learning how to make all sorts of different candles. Rob is a great guy who certainly knows so much and is really skilled. He is very generous with his knowledge, as well as many tips to successfully make candles, and save money too. Highly recommend his course: I have the skills now to make a variety of my own candles.
Response from The Wax Studio:Hi Ruth - it was great to have you on the course today - so glad you enjoyed it and learnt a lot. Best of luck as you get started at home. Rob
What a fun and informative course! I attended the workshop today and it has improved my own basic candle making skills and has given me a lot more confidence in what I am doing. Creating different types of candles has also been an invaluable experience. Rob is a great teacher- patient and knowledgeable and certainly made me feel welcome and comfortable enough to ask the many questions I had. Thanks so much for a great day!
100% recommended to everyone. Rob is a great teacher and really knows his stuff. Fantastic experience. Thank you Rob!
Response from The Wax Studio:Hi Alexandra,
Absolutely fantastic course. Robert is a very patient teacher and clearly very knowledgeable! I was surprised at how many things we made in the time without being rushed! I can’t recommend this enough.
Response from The Wax Studio:Hi Laura,
We had a great time on the course last week. Rob was helpful and flexible from the moment I contacted him. He was happy to keep the day to just the four of us and we all had lots of fun learning new and different techniques, and we went away with a selection of candles all made ourselves - and fired up to try it at home. Rob is a fantastic candle maker and a terrific teacher making everything seem fresh and interesting. We all had different favourites, and mine is definitely the scented candles. I happily recommend this day too others and will come back for any advanced courses. Thanks very much from us all.
I thoroughly enjoyed the candle making experience at Rob's Workshop. It was a lovely morning where I was able to experience different techniques. We were all given enough direction to walk away feeling confident to start our own journey and enjoy making candles for ourselves. The session was well organised. It was lovely to walk away with our own :).
Response from The Wax Studio:Hi Sayyada, It was a pleasure to have you on the course and thanks for the kind review,. Hope your candle making endeavours are successful!
I attended this course in Sunday 3rd March 2019 and found it to be very interesting. Rob welcomes the group with a very friendly manner which is always a good start.
I have previously knowledge of makin candles but at a very novice level.
The group was made up of 5 participants which was a nice number for the space we had.
Rob was very open to any questions being asked and answered them in a very clear and simple way.
I have now come away from the course very motivated to start up this hobby again and I would definitely recommend it to any beginners who wish to learn how to make candles.
Response from The Wax Studio:Thanks for the review Marie, and I know from your follow-up emails that you are now making good progress with your own candle making at home! all the best, Rob
I attended this course in October 2018 and had no knowledge of candle making at all . Rob was excellent giving you guidance throughout to make your own beautiful candles and explaining the process of candle making , He had a wealth of knowledge about his subject, and conveyed it well. Classes are kept small so you feel you are given utmost attention. Highly recommend this to anyone wanting to learn the basics of candle making. Cant wait for a follow up course!
I found this course absolutely perfect for beginners. We have covered lots of things in couple of hours, including different kinds of wax, additives, how to use colours, scents, moulds, different techniques, etc.
I came along with 5 beautiful candles made all by myself with the guidance of Rob, who is a kind and patient tutor, always happy to answer all kinds of questions.
I would truly recommend his course to anyone who loves candles or want to start a business or just want to spend a morning really engaged and productive.
Thanks very much Rob for your inspiring course! You helped us a lot!!
Response from The Wax Studio:Thank you Monika for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to have you on the course and best of luck with your lavender candles.
Spent a brilliant morning learning all about different techniques and materials for making candles in Rob's wonderful workshop. We poured, sniffed, scented, coloured, moulded and dipped, coming away with a selection of very smart candles. Rob answered all the design, technical and marketing questions we fired at him, and has inspired my teenage son to get making in order to fundraise for a school trip. The perfect introduction to a new craft. Thank you for your generosity and hospitality, Rob, we had a fantastic time.
Response from The Wax Studio:Hi Sara - thank you for your kind review. It was great to have you both on the course. I hope Max is able to use his new skills to raise some money for his challenge.
This course was excellent and jam packed with content. We covered so much and went home with a collection of 5different candles. Rob is a very knowledgeable and patient tutor and the day was great fun. I certainly hope he sets up a follow up course.
Response from The Wax Studio:Thanks Louise. I'm very pleased you enjoyed the course so much, and I'll keep you informed about future more advanced courses as I develop them.
I have just returned from attending a candle making course run by Rob and attended by three other lovely ladies. I was really looking forward to this course and definitely wasn’t disappointed. It was informative, hands on and fun. Rob shares all of his expertise and knowledge, giving me the confidence to now make my own candles.
Thank you Rob for a lovely day and I look forward to the advanced courses in the future. Biscuits were great too!
Response from The Wax Studio:Hi Tina
Loved the course! Rob was a great teacher and really liked that fact that we got to make lots of different types of candles - my favourite was the beeswax one :) Would recommend to others and come back for any advanced courses!
Response from The Wax Studio:Hi Sally,
Rob's courses was one of the few that offered the use of a variety of waxes, which immediately made it more appealing. Rob was so helpful and informative throughout the course, with a patient and relax teaching style which enabled us to all thrive as well as ask a plethora of questions. I have already started to research materials, which without Rob's in-depth knowledge would have been a nightmare! Thank you Rob for a fab course, it is indeed worth every penny and I cannot wait to begin my future!
