I was really excited about this class and attended with my son 11yrs. I did not know how much we would both actually enjoy it. Set up in an intimate workshop environment perfect for candle makig with all the tools we could possibly need set up already for us. Along with notes. All we needed was a pen for additional notes and a nose to make the tough choice of what fragrance for our candles. The beauty of this class was not that we made one candle, Elena had us make 4, different sizes and wicks. So by the end we understood what we were doing and how to make adjustments and measurements. Elena also bought a wealth of experience and hints and tips she generously shared that only experience can offer. Elena our teacher was a delight, she ensured we were not only having a great time- that we were also really understanding the process and able to make decisions to do this at home. She made it really simple and as easy to follow as a recipe. There was another lady who had made some candles in the class as well and it was great how much she was adding to her knowledge as it was us learning the ropes. Not only did we walk away with all this knowledge we walked away with 'store quality artisan candles' . My son and I were so impressed with ourselves. When we returned home we proudly displayed the candles and my husband rolled his eyes and said we went to the course to learn how to make candles, not buy them... Imagine how shocked he was to learn they were the candles WE made BY OURSELVES!!!!! Thank YOU Elena!!! It was a great afternoon and flew by and we are inspired to do more.

Elena was a lovely person, and very welcoming. The class was very informative, without being boring. She had a vast range of different fragrances to choose from and was more than happy to tell us where to get certain products/materials if we wish to make candles at home.

I had a very good experience attending this workshop! Elena was very friendly and very welcoming. She allowed us lot of time to select our chosen scents for the candles.She had many scents available and was very generous with materials for us to use. She walked through the candle making process ,list of tools needed and told us where to get all the materials needed so we will be able to start making candles at our own home. She also allowed us ample time to add finishing touches (dried flowers) to our candles. I would recommend this class to my friends who are interested to start making their own candles to also attend this workshop! Thank you Elena :)!!!

Such a fun afternoon making divine candles. Elena made us all feel so welcome and by the time I left, I felt like I could easily create beautiful candles at home. I also left with the knowledge on where to purchase everything I would need to start my own hobby up. I am burning one of my candles now and my whole house is filled with the most heavenly scent. If you love candles and enjoy being crafty, pop along to Elena's and spend a few hours making new friends, learning how to make your own amazing candles, laughing and generally having a great time. I highly recommend this course.

i recently attended Elanas candle making workshop as part of a surprise hens activity for myself and my friends. I knew I wanted a creative workshop and this surpassed all my hopes. It was informative and a lot of fun mixing up 3 different candles from our chosen scents. We got to decorate them with flowers and put labels on our containers. The best part was for myself and my friends to be able to take home some momentos of the day (which smelt great! And looked so professional) . This workshop was different to the normal hens activities and was perfect for me.

Elena was wonderful. Very welcoming and I was instantly happy with my decision to go to her class. I felt very comfortable and learned a lot. All the materials were provided and I was able to take what I made home as well as smell a wider range of candle scents rather than stick to my classic favourites. I had no problem speaking to her or asking questions on how to better my candle products and she did not hesitate to provide all the answers for me. Really enjoyed it.

I thoroughly enjoyed the candle making class with Elena. It was a very relaxing Sunday afternoon and Elena was a great teacher, with lots of ideas and hints, she definitely knows her stuff. The class notes are great. We made 4 different candles. The class is definitely value for money. The location and room was very nice. Only 3 students so it was very personalised. I had a great time and I would highly recommend Elena's course if you are interested in learning how to make candles.

Elena is a wonderful and personable teacher. She teaches and provides you with everything necessary to make candles, and also provides a handbook you can take away with you so you can continue to make candles after the class. She has a wonderful range of scents for the candles, so you are sure to find something that you love. You also come away from the class with at least 4 candles, the whole session is such good value. Bella the dog and Aria the cat are also amazing class helpers ;) Thank you Elena for a great afternoon experience.

Elena was an amazing teacher and taught us the top and tail of making candles. She has a huge variety of fragrances to choose from, so there’s something for everyone. The class goes at a leisurely pace, so it is perfect for a relaxing Sunday activity. The class price is very good value for money as we all went home with a box full of wonderful homemade candles (which would’ve cost much more in retail shops), and enough knowledge to make our own candles in the future. It is definitely a great class for beginners and I would recommend it to everybody.

The class was good value for money as we brought home one large, one medium, one travel tin, one shell and multiple tea candles. It’s great for those who have no prior knowledge on how to make candles.

I was on holiday in Australia with my two children and I wanted to find something fun and unique to do. The candle making class with Elena was a nice surprise and we all had a fabulous time with lots of fun and laughter. Elena was very patient with the kids and explained everything in great detail. The candles turned out to be so beautiful and were perfect gifts for us to bring back home. I would highly recommend this class!

I had such a great time today! Elena was so much fun, she is so passionate and generous with her time and information. She invited me into her beautiful home which was full of her candle masterpieces and gorgeous smelling oils. This class is excellent value for money and I am so pleased I did it and can't wait to get home and start creating my own!

I had a wonderful afternoon learning how to make candles. The teacher Elena was patient and knowledgeable, the class was interactive and fun. I made 2 glass candles, 1 travel candle, 2 shell candles and tea lights. I chose my fragrances, melted and poured the wax, learnt about the ratio of fragrance to wax and how to secure the wicks. I even chose miniature dried flowers to decorate each candle. I would thoroughly recommend this experience to anyone interested in learning about candle making as a hobby or even as a business. I did this class one on one, Elena came to my house, spent 3 hours with me and brought everything we needed. She also holds classes for up to 6 in her own home. It is very good value for money at $150, considering I spend on average $40 for a store brought candle. Now I can make my own for friends and family. Candle making is a skill that keeps on giving.

This course is amazing! Elena made me feel incredibly welcome. She is so knowledgeable on all levels and makes the whole process fun and easy to follow. Everything that was needed to complete the class was on hand and you go home with a wonderful goodie bag filled with you own home made candles, which look very professional. I can'r recommend this course highly enough. Thank you Elena for a fantastic class and experience! x

The candle class was terrific, Elena is a very well prepared teacher and she also provides all the tools for the candle making. At the end of the class you are able to make few different types of candles, with lots of advice on where to buy the tools for a cheaper price. Definitely no lowlights in this experience!! Elena is very clear, passionate and funny and she let you make anything by yourself, so it's more easy to remember all the procedures and steps. I was excited before starting, but the class was even better than I expected! Thanks Elena!

Candle Making Class review by Yolanda

Q&A

I wanted to ask if the soap making class uses essential oils (instead if fragrance oil) and what types of colorants eg micas.. and clays? Also do you use palm oil? Or can we use an alternative, thank you
Sam

I’m happy you asked me these questions and I’m happy to answer you.

I don’t use palm oil and good news there are many alternatives.
I use only essential oils for soap, no fragrances.
I use natural colourants like spirilina active charcoal and cocoa powder but
also Mica and clay.

I decorate the soap with organic dried flowers like calendula, lavender,
cornflower, chamomile and rose petal.

If you have any other questions I’m happy to hear them
