Candle Making Class with Arcandles

How to make candles



2.5 hours Class size 1 to 15 (public classes), 12 to 60 label $130


Your host, Work-Shop is COVID-19 aware

This means that this teacher won't run a class if they've had flu symptoms in the last 14 days, and will adhere to relevant state restrictions (e.g. on maximum number of students per class)

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. The best part? You get to take home everything you make on the day! Whether you’re looking for a unique gift idea for friends and family, or just want to treat yourself, you’ll walk away from this workshop with loads of knowledge and a swag of delicious smelling candles. All materials are supplied. This class is sure to kindle your interest in the olfaction and aesthetics of the simple and timeless candle.

There will be additional candle making kits for purchase on the day, should you want to continue making more creations at home.

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



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get

  • A basic understanding of candle making

  • Learn how to use tools and equipment to create candles

  • Create some beautiful candles using your choice of colour and fragrance

  • Walk away with a stack of your own hand-poured candles including 2x container candles, 1 x soy melts and 1x beewax candle to take home.

  • Candle making instructions to take home!


What to bring

  • Pen and notepad

  • A bag to carry your creations

  • Prepare to get your hands a little dirty, and make sure you wear clothes and footwear that you don’t mind getting wax on


Suitable for

This class is perfect for beginners - no prior experience is needed.
This class is a great indoor activity idea for individuals and couples as well as for a birthday, hens party, team building activity, corporate event, bucks party or Christmas party.

This would also be a great Xmas gift idea.

Louise fell in love with handmade crafts at age 8, and developed a strong passion to live a natural and organic lifestyle that inspired her to learn about the art of candle making. The journey initially began as a mind-nourishing hobby that later flourished into a passionate career when her heart was captured by the amazing beauty that a simple fragrant candle brings, together with the calm and aromatic ambience it has to offer. Her business Arcandles began here – crafted from a humble modest kitchen in Sydney, taking Arcandles friends to moments of beauty, bringing beautiful fragrances into homes, evoking cherished memories and uplifting spirits with this little flame. Louise would like to share her love and knowledge on candle making. She strongly believes that during the candle making process, students would be able to relief from their daily stressors, nourish their senses with therapeutic fragrances and feeling satisfied with their unique creations.

Adeline Teoh • Jul 2020


Teacher (Louise) explained steps very clearly and the activities flowed easily from one task to another. Good mix of theory and practice. She was also able to answer detailed questions and was generous with her experience and expertise. Overall, the class gave me the confidence to pursue my own candle-making practice. I was really pleased with the results.
