I have been making and teaching how to make candles for approximately 15 years. I have an online candle business where I sell wholesale to retailers and to individuals.

I have years of knowledge when it comes to all different types of waxes, candles, wicks and all the latest info when it comes to candle making. I can even point you to all the candle supplies and tips on starting your own candle business!

I really enjoy teaching and love watching peoples reactions as their candles set and they can see what they have created. The classes are small and personal in my workshop at my home and I tend to customise the class around the group and what they would like to learn.

Shiree is a very kind and generous teacher. The class was quite organized yet fun and we surprisingly, got a lot done in a short time. We also got to play around and experiment with our creations quite a bit. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed spending time in Shiree's beautiful studio and strongly recommend this class for anyone who is looking to learn about the art of candle making from someone who is genuinely passionate about it :)

Mary Jun 2021

Shiree was amazing. Didn't feel intimidated at all to ask any questions. It was loads of fun. Never thought i could create something so beautiful and practical. The environment was refreshing and inviting. We were provided with everything there was no expectation for us to bring anything. I was upset that I forgot to get a bag to take our candles home but we were supplied with that too. I was giddy like a little girl whose just been put in a room full of candy. Thank you so much for making this such an amazing experience.

I recommend this class 100% ! What an amazing experience !
The teacher was very welcoming and VERY knowledgeable. She spontaneously shared with us her best tips and all her experience about making candles and soaps. I was an absolute beginner when arriving, and she provided EVERYTHING needed - and much more - to create 4 types of candles and 2 types of soaps.
The value of this workshop is just awesome !
I will book her next workshop about colors and layers as soon as she will put the event on Bento

This class was so much fun. The teacher had so much information and gave us so many tips on both candles and soaps, how to make things easier or cheaper for ourselves. She had so many products on display and everything was beautiful .
We made lots of different products and got to take them all home with us . A large pillar candle , two soaps , two bees wax candles, 3 tea light candles and two small jar candles.
There was a great space available to take awesome photos of all of our creations, a light snack was provided .

Amy Rakowski Oct 2020

My sister had wanted to do a candle making workshop for a really long time so for her birthday I brought her here. I found this workshop online through ClassBento and was gravitated towards it because it sounded like we would learn a lot, get to take home more candles than other workshops and also got to make soap. I am so pleased I chose this workshop in the end. For all those reasons it was great! Our host was so friendly, warm, inviting and informative. The room is clean, modern, comfortable and smells amazing! She made the tasks really easy to learn and do. It was a delightfully calm and creative morning and I HIGHLY recommend everyone to do a workshop here.
