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

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.
