This is a ClassBento virtual Live/Box class! From the comfort of your home, share an artisan experience with your friends, family or colleagues, or enjoy with like-minded others. Our Live/Box classes have been featured on The Guardian, TimeOut, Broadsheet, Concrete Playground, Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Vogue, and more. Here's how it works:

  1. Request your preferred time
  2. We'll deliver a ClassBento Box to you - this is a physical DIY craft kit containing the materials you'll need. Shipping is free, and it should arrive within 5- 7 days. We ship nationwide.
  3. Enjoy the online class. After booking, you'll receive a link to a Zoom meeting. At the time of the class, use that link to join. During the class, you can easily ask questions and get immediate responses. Zoom is free and easy to use, on any device. You're in control of your privacy - you can mute yourself and hide your webcam if and when you prefer.

Why buy other people's candles when you can create your own! This live streaming candle making class will open up for you the amazing array of possibilities that exist in your pursuit to create beautiful, functional and sweet-smelling candles.

During this online workshop, which is perfect for beginners, we will explain the candle making procedure. Once we go through the process, we will give you a virtual demonstration of the method we have developed to make DIY soy candles. Then, at your own pace you can make your own candles using all the materials provided in your craft box. We don't want you to feel rushed duyring the workshop.

You will learn all about wax selection and the differences, their MP, fragrance loads, discuss wick sizing and jar selection, safety and regulatory requirements. Your teacher will also be available for questions at the end of the live online class, to clarify anything before you make your own after the class.
You have the option to purchase a candle making kit (valued at $50) as well as our candle making e-book when purchasing the class. Alternatively, you can just join the live streaming class to learn about the candle making process or use your own equipment at home.

Please note this is not the LCS kit as described in your instruction book. The book is based on my e-book which you will also receive by email when purchasing the class.

Candle making is a craft as old as civilization itself, yet after so technological advances, we still love the light, warmth, and beauty of a lit candle. Whether a seasoned artisan or a budding enthusiast, this live streaming candle making class offers something for everyone interested in learning the craft of candle making.

This class is for Australian residents only. If you live interstate (outside of Melbourne) please allow plenty of time for delivery of your kit.

Please note: You will not make your candles during this class. This is to ensure you don't miss any important information and to allow you to make them at your own pace after the class has ended.

great teacher, very informative. And I love how she actually doing the method online. She covers all the questions nicely.

Great class, we were doing the activity as the class was being taught, I think if it was a designated step by step class this would have worked better for us rather than trying to remember each step afterwards on our own, especially for younger aged students

Informative session. Thank you. Yes quite a lot to take in for an online lesson without actually doing it in class with the teacher guiding through. Mia tried making 2 candles straight after class with friend Luca so this is great. For the price,
would be helpful to have a follow up lesson/ call so that Mia could ask any questions after her own hands on making. Wondering if we could have the list of suppliers/ contacts so that we could order the materials to make the candles again. Thank you. Mum Serena

Wow, where to start! So much information, and even more inspiration. I'm so excited to get started and feel confident to go it alone. I have been provided with extra information as a reference point to keep me on track, and a sheet of frequently asked questions if needed. The teacher has provided us with information as to where I can purchase additional supplies, and made herself available for any further help I may require. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon and a very informative class.
