Candle Making Workshop FAQs

Who Enjoys Candle Making Workshops?

Anyone with a love of candles or who enjoys learning new skills in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Everything will be explained and demonstrated during the workshop. Switch off from the outside world for a few hours as we immerse ourselves in scent. Our workshops make the ideal gift for that person who has everything or maybe you’re looking to give a gift you can both enjoy taking part in. We also find our workshops make an excellent alternative hen party activity.

Who runs the workshops?

Emma, owner of The Wilton Street Craft Co will run each workshop. She has been making candles for several years. She has a wealth of experience in teaching practical skills and promotes a relaxed and friendly workshop environment.

I’ve never made candles before, can I come along?

Most certainly, our Candle Making Workshop is a fun and informative introduction to the tools, techniques and process of candle making. You’ll be guided through the workshop by Emma’s step by step tuition, leaving you feeling confident and enthused.

How many people are on the course?

You’ll be in a small, friendly group of no more than 6 people.

I’ve done your Candle Making Workshop, what’s next?

Brilliant, you’ve been bitten by the candle-making bug! We would suggest our Vintage Candle Making Workshop if you love a different style for your candles. If you want to get more adventurous and knowledgeable about scent then try our Scent Blending Workshop. Don't forget we also run seasonal workshops so keep an eye out for these. We’d love to see you come back for another workshop.

What do I need to bring with me?

All materials and refreshments are provided. You will be given an apron for the duration of the class but as things can get a bit messy we would advise you don’t wear your fanciest new outfit, just wear what makes you feel comfortable (our life motto).

What’s Included?

Everything is included in the workshop price, all equipment, ingredients, tuition and most importantly and amply supply of refreshments (sustenance is key).

Workshop attendees also get access to exclusive discounts.

What Will I Take Home?

3 handmade scented candles made during the workshop. A sense of accomplishment from learning new skills. The knowledge and skills to get you started along with confidence and desire to learn more about scent blending and candle making. There will also be the opportunity to indulge your candle addiction further by purchasing some of your favourite scented candles on the day.

Dietary Requirements?

As we provide you with refreshments please let us know at the time of booking if you have any allergies and/or dietary requirements. We cater for vegetarians/vegans as standard.

If You Can No Longer Make Your Booking?

We understand circumstances can change. If you are unable to attend please contact Emma at We do not offer refunds on workshop bookings but we will work with you to re-schedule your place to an alternative workshop date. If you do not show up on the date unfortunately you will lose your place on the workshop and will not be entitled to a refund or rescheduling.

Can I book a workshop as a gift?

Absolutely, and what a wonderful gift to give! Take a look at our gift section for more details. We have gift vouchers available so you have something tangible to give as a present (we don’t like turning up empty handed to the party either).

What T&Cs apply to gift vouchers?

Please note gift vouchers are non-refundable. Vouchers will be valid for 12 months from date of purchase. They can be upgraded or transferred to another workshop. If upgrade you will be asked to pay the difference in price. If they are transferred to another workshop with a lesser value than the value of the voucher then no refund is given but this difference can be spent on any product in our store or used in part payment for another workshop. If you have any questions please just (link) drop us a line.

Do you offer private candle making workshops?

Yes, if you have a group of 6 friends we can book you on to a workshop on a date to suit you, just get in touch. If you want us to bring our workshop to you then get in touch, we have wax and will travel!

Will Lady Be There?

Yes most definitely, this is her workshop studio too. Lady (the miniature short haired dachshund on the logo) will give you her official greeting before wandering off to find a nice place to snooze whilst we get on with the workshop. She’s used to me working and making candles so will leave us to it but if you want to give her cuddles in the breaks she loves that very much!

If you have an allergy please get in touch with me before booking and I can organise alternative arrangements for Lady.
