I have been making candles now for over 8 years. This started as a hobby and grew, i now not only sell to public but run workshops through my community and youth support services business working with special needs youth and adults.
I am now extending out and running introductory classes to candle making for everyone.
In this class you will learn the basics of candle making so you can make your own candles at home. You will walk out of the experience with two candles that you have made from a selection of designs and fragrances.
NDIS welcome. open to all ages.

We had a great time at this workshop. Michelle was super welcoming and we felt right at home with her hospitality and warmth. We could see her passion in candle making and her wealth of knowledge. She supported us through all the steps and provided a guide for us to take home. We enjoyed our experience and the value was great.

I had the best experience with Michelle at Shelly Ann Candles. The set was beautiful, her house smells amazing from all her beautiful scents collections. She’s a professional candle maker and an excellent teacher. Even though I went late there an hour late, we ended up staying up late for a good chat’s until 10:30
As a candle lover myself, I’m glad I attended her session. I highly recommend anyone to Shelly Ann Candles for those who are starting out, candle lovers and if you want to start your own business Michelle is your to go to person.
BTW my candles turns out beautiful and they smell amazing

Spent a great couple of hours learning the ins & outs of candle making and came away with 2 lovely candles. Michelle was very informative and knows her candles and answered all my questions and I do feel very confident to make more candles.
