Tara was super lovely and very informative about the process! The class was fun and light hearted and the cheese platters yum! The little shop front and wares are also to die for!

Highly recommend, fun and laidback class. The handmade Japanese tea mug and sophisticated scents give you the most beautiful candles! Tara can refill the candles or you can use them for tea, plus there’s champagne and nibbles, so you really get your money’s worth.

My daughter and I loved the candle making course with Tara. We ended up with a beautiful candle each in a Japanese teacup. I love that we can reuse the cup. Tara was great, really helpful and informative. We had a great afternoon. Thank you.

Cute! Fun! Wholesome! Night! Tara was a crowd favourite, candles were an absolute hit — we especially loved the Japanese ceramic tea cup that houses the candle too ~~ 10/10 would recommend to a friend :~)
