Ever wondered how you put the scent into a candle? Then join us for our scent blending and candle-making workshop.
This workshop delves deeper in to candle making and scent blending. Join Emma (and Lady of course) for a half-day workshop where you will make 3 scented candles to take home.
In a small group of 6 you will gather around Emma’s wooden kitchen table where she will share her love of scent and expertise in scent blending with you. In this workshop you will be guided in scent notes and building depth and complexity in your candle scents. Experience the therapeutic effect of working with wax and be immersed in scent as Emma guides you through the art of candle making using soy wax and essential oils to make your own natural, vegan candles.
Following step-by-step tuition you will make 3 scented candles from scratch, from preparing ingredients, to using recipes developed by Emma, to labelling your finished candles. You will also have a choice of essential oils to blend your own scent for your candle.
In this intimate and creative setting you’ll be surrounded by gorgeous flowers, home comforts and delicious refreshments. Expect to be relaxed, refreshed and inspired to create beautifully scented candles.
This workshop is a natural progression from our Candle Making Workshop as you will work with more complex scents and blending techniques so it’s helpful to already have a basic understanding of candle making. If you have done some candle making before but aren't sure which is the best workshop for you then please get in touch.
"All my candles worked out well & I especially enjoyed pondering over what scents to make use my own candle scent and what to call it. Emma had put a lot of time & effort into making the whole experience special for us." - Heather, May 2018
