The class was great and we enjoyed it so much. It would be nice to have a bit more for morning tea - such as some fruit with the apple pie.

Great location. Everyone was at different stages so sometimes hard to keep up.
Recommend arriving a little earlier to snag the best equipment and moulds etc.

Margie Matthews Nov 2021

Awesome class. Teacher was lovely, knowledgeable & inspiring. One tiny point, we lit our candles that afternoon & they burnt out in an hour. Should have waited 24 hours. Highly recommend this class

Tracey Woolford Sep 2021

Amazing class. Mel & Anita were very helpful and the whole process was explained very well. So happy with the amount of product we got to take home. Well worth the cost

Beautiful venue, teacher was great. Plenty of different things for us to choose when making soap and candles

Signs directing customers to the workshop would have been good. We spent time walking round the site looking for the workshop.
Teacher would be better placed front and centre so that everyone could hear what was being said. Clearer instructions for complete beginners. Perhaps give out written instructions before the class starts

Hi i found that people were not on time for the class so therefore the Teacher was talking in groups of 2 which i found was disappointing.Maybe a strict cut off time- if your late you will fall behind so i felt the class discussions were everywhere.
