What better way to relax with your bridal party than with a meditation class? A meditation class will ensure that everyone can focus on themselves and be more mindful.

Embrace self-care in a soy candle making class

Soy candles are not only great to have around the house but are also super fun to make and a great way to relieve stress. Customise your candle so that it smells just how you want it to and enjoy the benefits as you burn it at home.

Soy candle making workshops are popular in Sydney and Melbourne but you and your hens can also make candles from home with our range of DIY candle kits. Perfect for those looking for hens party ideas at home.
