Candle Making Workshop

Do you love handmade scented candles and want to learn more about how they are made? Ever wondered how you put the scent into a candle? Then this workshop is for you.

This workshop serves as an excellent introduction 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 knowledge and passion for candle making with you. Experience the therapeutic effect of working with wax and get excited by 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 suitable for complete beginners. It serves as a fun and informative introduction to the tools and techniques used in candle making, and as a perfect springboard to our more advanced scent-blending workshops.

"Not being a crafty type person I was a bit worried but Emma was very patient and I felt like I came away having learned a new skill. It was a really great day and lots of fun!" - Heather, May 2018
