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 lively and lovely teacher. The knowledge which has spread across with all her tips and tricks is wonderful. From pillar wax to tea light candles to beeswax and soap all in 2.5 hour of session is worth the value and best activity to learn.

Fantastic 2 hours leaning to make a variety of different candles from pillars to tea lights. We also made some beautiful soaps with dried flowers and perfume.
Shiree was very personable with heaps of information.
The course was very relaxed in a lovely setting. The time went so quickly and we were amazed at how much we managed to make in that time.
Well worth the cost and I would recommend this course to everyone .

Had an awesome time at this class. You get to take home a great variety of candles as well as the bonus of the 2 soap bars Our teacher was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. The class was held in her home studio but honestly couldn’t have been more perfect

She was very knowledgeable about the subject.She explained the facts and all information necessary. She let us do the practical by ourselves.She was so helpful and encouraging to the facts we need to know about candle and soap making and the insights of the market.

What an experience Always wished to make my own candles and this workshop made my wish come real. Shiree is an amazing teacher and makes the whole learning an easy and fun experience. Making soaps, comes as a bonus with this. A small photo shoot session in the studio makes it a complete experience.
100% value for money

A excellent session with a beautiful lady! I walked in not knowing a great deal about candle and soap making and walked out with all sorts of information, helpful tips and tricks, candles/ soap and also made a new friend, bonus!

Cherie is an excellent teacher and a wonderful person - very happy to have attended this class and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning to make candles/ soaps.

Thank you Cherie!

From the moment we arrived to the time we left armed with our beautiful creations, it was good vibes, smiles, laughter and ZEN! Made pillar candles, bees wax, tea light and container candles, beautifully scented! Soaps were easy to make and divine to look at - who knew we were so talented? LOL! Had a ball and highly recommend! Shiree is fabulously talented, patient and cannot wait to do another course with her! Thanks

Absolutely fantastic Shiree is a bubbly , sweet ,very friendly lady who makes you feel welcome and right at home . She explains everything in simple to understand terms provides everything you need for your lesson and more , she's very generous with materials and knowledge definitely great value for money I did not expect to do as much as I did Next time I'm booking a private lesson to advance on what I've learned on this workshop. More than recommending this class if you thinking of candle making Shiree is your lady .

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.
