My husband and I enjoyed this soy candle making workshop at Handmaker’s Factory.
This was our Christmas gift for each other.
The instructions are clear and easy to understand. It’s good to be able to bring the finished candle projects home and light them up to enjoy it.
Nicole is a very good teacher.

We made beautifully scented candles, and the teacher was very friendly and generous, as she gave extra jars/ tea light cases than what was advertised. However, the smell when burning the candles at home were very faint.

Jessica Taylor  •  Oct 2019


Had a fabulous time with Nicola from Habdmaker's Factory doing botanical printing and candle making. She was so incredibly helpful, very friendly and knowledgeable. It was great to learn new skills in a friendly and encouraging environment! The candles I made are good enough to sell and I will never look at leaves the same way again

Kate Barraclough  •  Sep 2019


Really enjoyed the class. Nicola was friendly and well organized, which made the class very relaxing/enjoyable.
Loved that she gave you a booklet/handout with all the information you need to make eco candles again when you’re at home and where to get supplies. Loved that she’s eco conscious and that you can do everything without having to buy too much new stuff either, maybe just a thermometer for me. Would highly recommend :)
