Jackie Ramsay May 2024


The candle making workshop was a lot of fun. Mel is an awesome teacher. The instructions were easy to follow, there was a large selection of scents, colours and moulds to choose from. I’m really happy with the candles and melts I made.

Sharon Mullins Apr 2024


A nice treat for myself and my Daughter in school holidays, Melanie was a wonderful host, she was lovely to my daughter and we both really enjoyed the soapmaking. We were also surprised at how much of our work we were able to take home.

The class was really well setup with a great atmosphere. The class size was perfect, in that it wasnt to loud and Mel could interact with everyone. The candles we made were great and we has so much freedom of choice. Me and my partner will definently be going back to the intermediate candle making class.

Lisa Singleton Jan 2024


Mel was a wonderful teacher. She was positive and encouraging and helped me to make 2 pendants. Everything was supplied and there was some great choices of stones to work with. Apart from learning new skills and being given time to practise them, I loved what we created and felt I’d achieved something worthwhile. I can’t wait to do another class and build on my skills. Thank you Mel

great atmosphere, clear instructions and so many choices of colours and scents ! this is pur second camdle making and we will be back

Sarah Brown Dec 2023


The actual soap making was fun however the class was very unorganised. The teachers weren’t that welcoming. A separate class was being held at the same time as our class. And there was only one pair of scissors for the whole room. Definitely room for improvement.

Jennine Hay Dec 2023


Overall it was fun but it would have been better if everyone in the class had there own set of items and did not need to share. Also running 2 different classes (one soap making and one candle making) at the same time (with the same instructor) isn’t ideal. One pair of scissors at the end to decorate gift bags between approximately 12 people also doesn’t work to well.
Lastly the picture use to promote the class looks nothing like what you make.
Trying to give constructive feedback to make it a better experience for all involved.

Anna Bagshaw Nov 2023


Mel was great and so very accomodating and patient. I highly recommend her classes or arranging a private class for just a few of you. I will definitely organise more.

Judith Heather Stokker Nov 2023


Teacher was very well prepared. Resources were great. Teacher very knowledgeable and we all learnt a lot. Everyone came away with lovely candles. Only issue was that the lesson was only two hours long not the three hours as advertised. We had time to make another type in candle.

Christine Patterson Nov 2023


Fantastic teacher, great peaple in the classroom all over a very good day and very informative

Val Lochel Oct 2023


I took my granddaughter to the soap making class for her 14th birthday. We had an awesome time together. She made dinosaur soaps for her little brothers and other shapes for herself & friends. The teacher was extremely helpful and answered so many questions for us, as it was our first attempt. The hardest part was deciding on oils, fragrances & colours as there was a huge variety to choose from. We were very impressed with the whole experience and my granddaughter was so excited about what she’d achieved and was taking home to her family. I’d recommend the class to anyone… well worth the money.

Thank you Mel,
The candle making was so good.
I have learnt so much in your classes.
I buy my candle but after coming to your class, I'm going to start making them.
Had the best time.
Thank you ❤️

Angela Fuller Oct 2023


Very knowledgeable, patient and helpful. Was able to answer the many questions I had. I really enjoyed the class. There were some date changes through no fault of the teacher and she was very prompt with communication and resolution. She went above and beyond to rectify the issue. She made me feel at ease straight away and I just love what I ended up with. I hope to make some candles on my own and join another class in the future.

Sue Leighton Aug 2023


Mel was a fantastic tutor and explained every step so well. We made tea lights, melts and a glass jar candle which all worked out great. Huge choice of colours and aromas to use. Nothing was rushed or too much trouble so we had plenty of time to absorb what we were actually doing. Printed, in depth instructions supplied on paper after we finished for referral going forward. Thoroughly enjoyed the morning and five stars to Mel for being a great teacher with attitude to match. Looking forward to doing an advanced course.

I recently had the pleasure of attending a Soapmaking workshop with Mel from Dragonfly Creative Workshops and I must say, it was an incredible experience! Mel's creativity and extensive knowledge about the different soap making methods truly impressed me. She guided us through the process with utmost patience. The use if a thermometer definitely made it easier.

The range of fragrances, natural oils, and colors that Mel provided were absolutely fabulous. We all enjoyed experimenting with the variety of fun and beautiful moulds available.
The venue itself was easy to locate and spacious, with the added convenience of a restroom. To top it off, we were treated to a delightful selection of different coffees, teas, and a mouthwatering homemade cake.

Considering the quality of the workshop and the amount of joy it brought us, it was definitely great value for money. Each participant went home with an abundance of gorgeous soaps, a true testament to Mel's guidance and expertise.

One of the highlights for me was witnessing the other artists in the workshop create their own unique designs, using various colors and essential oil combinations. It was truly inspiring. I highly recommend this workshop to anyone looking to create their own natural soaps for their families and grandchildren, while avoiding harmful chemicals. Mel's workshop is a haven for creativity, learning, and building a healthier lifestyle.

It was a lovely day working with Mel again today. I got some great advice about soap making with exfoliants and was pleased to try out some new fragrances. I feel confident now to go home and experiment with creating swirls in my melt and pour soaps. I'm looking forward to attending Mel's next classes especially the gemstone pillar candle and the compress soap.

It was great to do a workshop with Mel again. I feel like I've understood the candle making process a bit better after today. I've come away with tealights, a candle and lots of Christmas melts which I'll be giving away as Christmas presents.
Thank you Mel for a lovely day.

This class was good fun and the tutor was very helpful. Every one received one on one instructions on how to make these incredible pieces of jewelry. You take away two pieces with follow up emails with all the instructions. Like any craft project, you are only limited by your imagination. The end product will make a lovely gift for the female friends and family in your life.

Anita Eccles Feb 2023


The class was good and very informative. The venue would have been better if the Community Centre had of left a key for our teacher but she did a great job delivering the class outside under gazebos with no access to facilities and it rained. But the attendee's all made the best of the situation and stayed positive. Mel provided handouts at the end of the class for us to take which are very informative. Mel also had an assistant who was helpful and friendly. A good time was had by the party of 4 ladies that I organised the class for. One of my guests was my daughter and it was her birthday gift which she thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you to Mel and her helper.

Tracy Osterfield Feb 2023

Emily Carbone Nov 2022


Didn’t learn as much as I thought we would. Teacher didn’t really give any one-on-one assistance. Also didn’t get to take home as many candles as I thought we would for the price.

Teacher's response

Hi Emily,

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent class. I'm sorry to hear that the class didn't meet your expectations. I do my best to ensure that each student feels supported and walks away with the required learnings to create additional pieces at home. Regarding the amount of product, you make/take home at the end of the class. Each student receives a 100g container, 4 tealights and 10 melts depending upon the size tray chosen. This equates to 300 mg of wax.

Please feel free to contact [email protected], should you wish to discuss anything further.

Warm regards,
Melanie

This is my second time attending a workshop with Mel and this won’t be my last! She’s a sweet lady and great teacher. She really knows her craft as she answered all our questions and more. Everything was provided for us and I love the variety of quality materials to choose from. At the end of the class we were all very proud of what we made! I couldn’t believe I can make something like this. (see pic) I highly recommend this workshop!

Mel guided a small group through the process of soap making, using all natural products. (No harsh chemicals used).
We got to take home 8 bars and several smaller bars of soap that we had made.
The class was held in a beautiful setting in Tambourine.
I highly recommend Mel and the venue.

We went to Mel to kick of a hens extravaganza for a special bride. It was the absolute perfect start to the day. Mel was so kind and helpful (and very tolerant of our exuberant mood). All the material were provided and instructions were easy to follow with some hand holding my Mel. Everything was paced perfectly and left us with plenty of time to heckle one an another and have a whole lot of fun.
Oh, and the resulting candles are brilliant

Mel is the teacher you would want if you’re a beginner like me who asks a lot of questions. (Thanks, Mel!) She’s warm, patient and very knowledgeable in her craft. The venue is easy to find and has a laidback atmosphere. I made a (hematite, shell pearl) bracelet with the neat clasp finish that I always wanted to learn. (Making the earrings for me was a bonus!) There were lots of good quality materials to choose from. This was a fun experience and I highly recommend! I’m looking forward to the next class with Mel.

The venue was beautiful
Mel has such a massive range of supplies for everyone to use and goes through every step/instruction thoroughly.

Thank you so much for a wonderful experience, we will definitely be back to experience different classes.

I have always wanted to make candles so I joined class Bento and chose a Dragonfly creative workshops to show me how to create candles. The venue was held at the country womens association hall in Petrie. Be an early bird or park across at the train station as the venue is light on parking.
That said, the teacher Mel was absolutely lovely and most informative. There was an abundance of good quality materials to choose from and the class was good value for money. The beginners candle making class was a lot of fun and I learnt a lot. It fueled my curiosity to ask a lots of questions and Mel answered all my questions making me want to come back for more. Thanks Mel see you soon!

Friendly welcoming atmosphere. I felt the instrument could have been more detailed/specific. Class time needs to be longer and what is advertised needs to be reflected in the class.
Teacher was warm which I appreciated.

Teacher's response

Hi April,

Thank you for your feedback…I will use it to help improve what I offer to clients in the future.

The Jewellery classes are indeed quite intricate and time consuming. These projects are also quite hard to explain in written documents.

I’ve taken note about the comments re: the time frame for the class. I was willing to keep going longer on the day but I understand if you had subsequent commitments that were already planned.

I will aim to put a note on other bookings saying that the time required for the class can be shorter or longer than advertised based on many factors.

I’ve dropped you a couple of messages to rebook another session (no charge of course) to finish the project off so let me know when you are free.

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
