Had a fantastic evening with Angharad in a breathtaking location of Wales. My daughter and I received a very warm welcome with tea and snacks and put my daughter at ease who was a little apprehensive before going through to her studio in the garden. My daughter and I never dreamt that we would learn so much in short amount of time, and make so many beautiful candles.
Angharad is a fantastic teacher who explains thing really well and has inspired my daughter to want to make more of her own at home.
Thank you so much Angharad. You are a truly inspirational lady and can't thank you enough. You have inspired my daughter to want to make some at home. Thank you x

I had a one to one workshop day with Angharad and I loved every moment of it. From the moment I arrived at her beautiful home, I had a warm welcome it felt as if I knew her all my life. Angharad was very experienced and knowledgeable, she was very thorough in explaining the many different wicks, waxes and colours etc. We had a good laugh with the practical side of making the different types candles and Lunch was fantastic. I don't think we ever stopped talking the whole day, it was an incredible day and highly recommend her to anyone.
Wish you all the very best Angharad and Thank You....

Had a fabulous time with Angharad in the gorgeous little hamlet of Moylegrove in Pembrokeshire. The candle making course was comprehensive and we came away with two boxes of beautifully presented candles in a wide variety of waxes. Angharad was very knowledgeable and incredibly friendly and had answers to all our technical questions as well as personal tips and tricks. She was able to tailor the experience to our wishes and had a fantastic array of waxes and moulds to give great breadth and depth to the experience. Whether it's for personal interest or with a view to setting up a small business, this would be an ideal place to start. Angharad couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating and we felt completely at ease the moment we stepped through the door. Homemade lunch was also amazing! I heartily recommend the course (and Pembrokeshire) to anyone.

We spent an amazing day with Angharad, just what we needed after a taxing week at work.
The course was informative, relaxing and great fun, we learnt so much and come away with some beautiful candles.
We both felt so inspired, so much so I’ve asked Father Christmas for a candle kit to make more at home.
Would highly recommend Wax the Matters - lovely, very patient tutor and beautiful setting .....what more could you ask x

I really enjoyed the Candle Making Course with Angharad, she was really pleasant and made everyone feel comfortable. The course was made really understandable and it was so relaxed. Her workshop is perfect and is in a really relaxed setting within her home grounds which is amazing. Her homemade Quiche and soup were delicious,along with her husband's homemade bread. If you are looking for a nice relaxing day while making beautiful candles then I would definitely recommend that you chose this course, you won't be disappointed.

Extremely overdue review but all to do with my laziness!
Angharad is an absolute star, by the end of the day you forget you're on a course and feel as though you've popped to an old friends house. Her setup is in a beautiful garden and I love the fact it's away from any bustle. Beautiful family and I would definitely go again. Thank you again for a lovely day! 😊

Where to begin!
Sometimes it can be quiet scary going to do a course on your own - this was not the case for Angharads candle making course. Instantly on arrival I felt at ease being greeted with a smile and a cup of tea.
Angharad has a natural talent at making people feel relaxed in her company, which is something quite special.
The course was fantastic. I learnt so much and feel confident in my new found candle making abilities. I left with more candles than I thought I would be and have been actively burning them all over my house! We worked with soy wax, rapseed, parafin and bees wax. So you really do learn a whole range of various techniques.
The settings around you are completely and utterly idyllic. So peaceful, which adds to the therapeutic aspect of the whole course. I left feeling warm and happy, which I think everyone needs at the beginning of January!
Angharad, you are a wonderful teacher and person and it was an absolute pleasure to meet you and to be welcomed into your beautiful home. Thank you for your patience and your kind nature. It really made the day what I needed it to be.
Book this course!! It’s so worth it.

Lovely, informal day in a peaceful location. Angharad was very welcoming and full of knowledge. She explained everything well so I always knew what was going on. We covered lots in a relatively short space of time and I came away with lots of different candles. Thoroughly enjoyable day and really pleased with the candles I made. Already thinking about making some more at home.

What a wonderful day! Angharad is a lovely person and an excellent teacher. We never dreamed we would learn so much in one day and make some beautiful candles of our own to take home with us. The day went at our own pace and Angharad’s instruction was straightforward but detailed and all our questions were answered and explained. Her enthusiasm has inspired us to start making our own candles at home. The beautiful location and lunch were a bonus. Highly recommended. x

Angharad met me outside and ushered me in to tea/coffee and cake. What a warm welcome.
She explained the format of the day before we went to her lovely studio in the garden. As she explained each of the waxes, we made the candles, so we could see how each worked. She gave advice on which waxes best took colour and scent, and which to use and how to apply them. She was happy for me to make notes and to take photos as we proceeded through the day-to help me remember!!
She is so patient and knowledgable and obviously loves what she does. I had the best day ever and came home with beautiful candles and the desire to make more from the kit I purchased. Thank you so much.
I absolutely loved this workshop. Angharad

Thank you Angharad for such a lovely day. You are a natural teacher and I cannot believe how much I learned. I am thrilled with the candles I produced and my friends and family can't believe I actually made them. I just can't bring myself to light them yet. Thanks also for putting the candlemaking kit together. It has everything I need to have a go on my own. Please don't forget to let me know if you run any other courses.

Wow - an incredible day! Arriving on a wet and windy day, we were immediately welcomed into Angharads traditional Welsh home with tea and biscuits and after a quick talk about what the day would entail, we went to the workshop and began. Angharad is incredibly knowledgeable and an excellent teacher and In just a few hours we had made a great selection of pillar and container candles working with a range of waxes. Both of us left inspired and relaxed and having had a great deal of fun. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone and very much hope to return!

We had such a lovely day making candles with Angharad. She made us feel instantly at home with her warm hospitality, and we made a fantastic range of different candles. We learnt about the different types of wax, wicks, scents and dyes and came home with a fabulous box of creations! Angharad is knowledgeable and patient, and I would highly recommend this course.

I chose this course because of the excellent reviews it has received and we were not disappointed.
Angharad is a lovely person and superb teacher, knowledgeable and passsionate about candle making and made the day so enjoyable. We were welcomed into her home and given superb hospitality.
I still can't quite believe we made so many beautiful candles and we are keen to go back and learn more. Brilliant value for money and I can't recommend it more strongly.

I had a wonderfull day with Angharad in her candle making studio. It really could not have been better, totally exceeded my expectations. Fabulous company and excellent value. We made some really lovely candles and I am hooked on candle making as a hobby. Anyone who wants to try learning a new skill would really enjoy spending a day at Wax the Matter.

I booked this course for me and my Mum as a mothers day gift (i'm sorry this review is so late!). We had a fantastic day. Angharad was an amazing teacher, talking through all the different wax's and wicks, colors and scents. She actively encouraged note taking so we could practice our new art at home. The workshop was in a beautiful surrounding and lunch was wonderful, the pets were amazing. I'm hoping Angharad will do a slightly more advanced course in the future so i can re-book for me and my mum as we love mother-daughter days out where we learn new skills and come away with our achievements. We took some kits home with us and find it so relaxing making candles and practicing all we learnt. Thank you so much, we will be back! :-)

This course is definately value for money and on top of this my mum, my sister and I had a very enjoyable time.
Angharad who runs the course is extremely knowledgable on all different types of wax and wicks. We were able to make and come away with a number of candles out of soya wax, beeswax, rapeseed wax and gel wax. She emparts this knowledge very well and encourages creativity.
This course works well on multiple levels as Angharad is able to tailor it for what you need- whether it is just for a day out to do something different or for people wanting to learn candle making for a hobby or for people want to lean to make candles for their wedding or like me wanting to learn to make own candle products to sell.
As a direct result of this course / Angharad's teaching I am now making my own candles to sell.
The workshop is set in a lovely location and very relaxing. I would definately reccomend this course.
