Beginners Candle Making Class: Let There Be Light

Learn how to make DIY candles in Melbourne



1 hour Class size 12 to 40     label $120

There’s no denying that the humble candle, first invented by the Romans, has the power to instantly soften a space, combining light, heat and fragrance in a flickering ambience. Become a chandler (‘90s sarcasm optional) in this candle making class. Using soy wax and fresh ingredients with zero preservatives, you’ll create quality candles.

In this beginners candle making workshop, we’ll cover the selection and blending of fragrance, wicks and waxes, optimal temperatures and room conditions, and the safety and legal requirements of chandlery. Mix and blend fragrances, and create a new addition for your home or a gift for a friend. All materials are supplied.

This class is sure to kindle your interest in the olfaction and aesthetics of the simple and timeless candle. Let there be light!

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class.

We’ve teamed up with Australia’s brightest creative minds to share their knowledge and help teach you a new skill. From 3D printing and stencil art through to music and gardening – life skills and personal development through to cooking doughnuts and mushroom foraging, we offer a broad range of fun and creative short courses to suit our time poor lives. We will inspire you to pick up that pen, paintbrush, hammer or sewing machine and flick the switch that will kickstart a whole new way of life.

Community values lie at the heart of our project. We collaborate with local artists and industry experts to teach classes and utilise local suppliers for any materials needed. We also provide a creative environment for emerging artists to produce and sell work, and meet like minded individuals. Work-Shop will be a space for everyone, with a rotating schedule of art shows, information nights on local issues and a whole range of events and community initiatives.

Angela Kelly Jun 2022


Was a welcoming environment. The instructor and daughter were warm and helpful. Booklet provided all the information which I could work through as the workshop went on, giving me experience and then confidence when going home to do the task again on my own. All materials were well ordered and easily accessed. Instructions were clear. Workshop provided me with all the information I needed. I particularly enjoyed that there was not too much time taken on giving instruction but in doing the task.
Greaat workshop. Thankyou

Kerri Bogues Mar 2022


We really enjoyed the workshop - it was super informative, the instructor was really helpful and explained everything very well. The materials provided were above and beyond what we expected - the decorative items e.g. crystals were great! We would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to start out in candle making for leisure/business or just for a unique evening out!

Rachel Matters Mar 2022


This was so fun! Teacher and venue and the range of decorating items was all fabulous. Great team activity, would highly recommend

Shivani Thiyagarajah Jan 2022


The teacher was fantastic, gave some really good tips and tricks on candle making. The venue was lovely, spacious and suited the diy nature of the workshop. I would say though for the strong scents of the oils, it was a little small but I understand that big spaces cost more. Materials were good, except I would have preferred a greater variety of scents as they all smelled very similar. However, as a class it was amazing, I can personalise all of this to suit me at home and it showed me candle making is not so intimidating after all

So happy to finally be able to do in person workshops. Appreciate a good candle even more now knowing the process of how a candle is made. The teacher was easy to understand, informative & encouraging. Would recommend this workshop to anyone who wants to know more about candles in general. Bonus surprise since we also had the company of a chilled fur-friend!

I thoroughly enjoyed this class. I found all the steps to be incredibly clear and our teacher was open to all questions and really helpful.
We were given a step by step instruction manual to help us on out candle making journeys at home. Wonderful and calming class.
