Our teacher was wonderful- friendly & very knowledgeable, she answered all of our questions and explained each step of the process very clearly. Course context was great we made a container candle, a range of tea light candles and wax melts, with a wide range of colours and scents to choose from. The venue was fabulous, bright and spacious- this is a great course for beginner candle makers.

Grace Lau Nov 2019


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 :)
