Had a fantastic day learning how to make candles with Jo, she’s so knowledgeable and friendly and I got to take home some beautiful products that she taught me to make. Her workshop smelt amazing too!
What can I say...so so glad I attended this course!
Firstly Jo is lovely, such a warm welcome and happy to share her experience and knowledge completely freely.
Personally I had watched every YouTube video, Googled everything I could think candle making related and followed every possible social media group I came across. For me the result was a scrambled mess of ‘knowledge’ with conflicting advice not to mention different countries so different rules!!
Spending the day with Jo gave me the correct knowledge and confidence to move forward with my ideas and start testing ready to finally start selling in the future.
Thanks again Jo x
Response from The White Candle Company:This is such a lovely review Kelly. Thank you so much and best of luck moving forward, youll be fab xx
My friend and I loved our course with Jo, really relaxed, learned a lot and came away with some lovely products made by our own fair hands! Thanks Jo.
Response from The White Candle Company:Thank you Michelle. Youll have lots of time to practice over these two weeks!!
I travelled over from Ireland especially for this course. Jo is an absolute lady and so inspiring. The business she has built up from incredible hard work and dedication is evident. She was so informative with all of her advise and helped iron out all of the queries I had so that I now have the confidence to get down to work and take the next step. Very enjoyable day with very good company. Jo deserves every success.
Response from The White Candle Company:Jackie, Thank you so very much for this lovely review. It was an absolute pleasure to meet you and I wish you every success going forward. Thank you for making the trip x
When we attended the workshop due to the corona virus numbers were kept low, we were so thankful Jo still ran the workshop for us. What an experience, from the wonderful setting to the welcoming company from both Jo and Blossom is really was the prefect setting to take in the info on candle making. We chatted the whole time none stop, we went away with so much info we really did learn so much from it. Jo’s knowledge is fantastic all our questions answered and more. Thank you so much, we highly recommend the workshop 🙂
I attended the course with no preconceived expectations and was pleasantly surprised with the positive experience. Jo is such a nice person and best of all she is an expert in her field and immensely knowledgeable.
Whilst most people make candle making sound daunting, Jo completely put me at ease and made the whole experience so much fun and filled me with confidence.
If you have any doubts then forget about them and get yourself booked on this course it is an amazing insight into the world of candle making and candle maker of the year Jo is truly an amazing host.
I would highly recommend this course with Jo. Jo is super friendly, very experienced and generously transparent with her advice. I learnt technical aspects, legal requirements and lots of invaluable tips from Jo's experience of candle making and running a business.
The setting in Suffolk is lovely.
On top of all of that I came away with a bag full of goodies I had made on the day. A really relaxed and informative day - thank you Jo:-)
Response from The White Candle Company:Thank you so much! Look forward to seeing your onward journey! x
Thank you so much Jo - had a lovely time on the candle making course. I learnt everything from the legislation required, to wick and wax recommendations - the course flew by and Jo was so lovely. Had lots of lovely goodies to bring home and would highly recommend to anyone - thank you so much Jo! X
Response from The White Candle Company:Thank you Jess. Was lovely to meet you (and your mum!) x
Had a very pleasant day learning to make candles with Jo. She covered the required labelling and answered all of our questions about starting a candle business. Her workshop is easy to find, in a lovely setting and with plenty of parking. This is a great course to get you started if you're thinking about making candles to sell. Came home with a lovely bag of goodies that smell fantastic. Thanks Jo! x
Response from The White Candle Company:Thanks Nicola, glad you enjoyed yourself and wishing you the best of luck! x
I thoroughly enjoyed my day with Jo and her gorgeous pup Blossom. The course was perfect and answered everything I needed to know about getting started in the candle industry. The setting was beautiful, easy to find, with plenty of parking and a very smiley Jo ready to greet you with a warm welcome. I left the course feeling excited to start making my own candles with the knowledge and advice Jo had shared. I would highly recommend this course for anyone interested in setting up their own candle making business or just for pleasure.
Response from The White Candle Company:Thank you so much Michelle. Wishing you the best of luck with your venture! x
I participated in Jo’s course and I have to say it was absolutely amazing it exceeded my expectations by miles!!! I wasn’t sure what to expect but I couldn’t have wished for anything more.
Jo was so lovely I could have just chatted to her all day and not make any candles!!! Jo was so helpful, kind and patient with myself and my daughter and now she thinks Jo is the best thing since sliced bread!!!
I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to start a candle making business, learn a new skill or if you would like a great day out.
Response from The White Candle Company:Ah! Thank you so much for this lovely review Claire. Amelia and you were both a pleasure to have in my studio and I look forward to seeing you again. x
What a great course to do if you're interested in candle making. I did this yesterday (21/7). Beautiful setting wonderfully friendly Jo and her gorgeous pooch Blossom. Learnt a lot and gave me so much to think about which I hadn't before in regards to legislation and wicks etc and also on top of that left with some great goodies in candles and melts we made that day. Relaxed and very friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended.. 5*.. Thank you Jo xx
Response from The White Candle Company:Thank you so much Helen. Good luck with the next step of yiur journey xx
I would highly recommend this course. Jo was very helpful and an excellent teacher. We made a variety of lovely scented candles and melts which we got to take home in a beautiful goody bag. I really enjoyed my day and would recommend this course as you gain experience . Also Jo was happy to answer questions and give general tips . Also the venue is beautiful.
I would highly recommend this course. The day was fun & informative & Jo was super friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable and I came away with plenty of top tips, confidence & a bag full of gorgeous candles that I’d made! This course is an absolute must, thank you!
Just an amazing workshop. I absolutely loved it. The workshop was generous with delivery and product.
It was real and human- just perfect.
I’m leaving my candles to ‘mature’, but have been using the melts, all just so lovely.
I recently attended the candle making for business course with Jo & absolutely loved it. It was so calm & relaxed & I learnt so much about candle making. It has given me a lot more confidence moving forward & starting my own little empire. I would highly recommend this course.
Thank you Jo. X
Had a lovely morning candle making - Jo is very friendly and generous with her tips and knowledge of the business. The company and lunch were good too! It was a bonus to leave with beautifully packaged candles and visit the pretty town of Lavenham.
What a great course - I learned so much about the art of candlemaking thanks to Jo and had a lot of fun along the way. Who knew wax has a memory?! We came back laden with beautifully scented candles of various sizes as well as melts and much more. Jo's knowledge and enthusiasm is infectious and she's inspired me to have a go at making my own candles. Her workshop is in Lavenham which is a great spot to explore afterward too.
I attended the introduction to candle making course as a business.
Jo was an excellent teacher, really warm and friendly and so knowledgable with everything she taught. Small group sizes means that everyone was attended to fully. There are several important and pertinent safety and legal implications that one should know about if considering doing this as a business.
We made a few different selection of candles to take home with a few different choices of scents, these make wonderful gifts! The day was laid back and informal and I can't rave highly enough about the lovely Jo and her assistant all so friendly and helpful.
I highly recommend this course to anyone, plenty of free parking at the venue with facilities. Lovely area of Lavenham which is so beautiful to visit after the course.
Gift vouchers available which I believe make wonderful gifts for anyone that likes crafts.
A really enjoyable and fun day, I can't recommend highly enough.
Thank you so much!
Attended the candle making course, only two "students" and Jo, and we had an amazing day. Not only did we learn how to make candles but also the legalisation concerning the selling of the products. The puppy was adorable ....
