Elena is very friendly and passionate about her work and I absolutely enjoyed the class, Elena’s company and the beautiful candles I made!! I highly recommend this class.

Soap Making Workshop


I thoroughly enjoyed the lesson. I feel confident in making soap at home.
Although It was a lot of information to take in, the teacher explained it well and provided great notes to keep. Also very generous!
I have cut out 15 individual soaps out of the two blocks of soap we made.

Natural Soy Candle Making Class


Fantastic!
I thoroughly enjoyed Elena's workshop and highly recommend it.
Elena was wonderful; professional, friendly, informative and patient (with me).
I enjoyed working with her products, which are natural and environmentally friendly. She does mention other products, however I chose her workshop because of its environmentally friendly approach and that's what I'm about; protecting nature and wildlife.

The day was warm and sunny and her studio is light and fresh. 'Bella' added a very pleasant touch to the afternoon atmosphere. And what a wonderfully relaxed, friendly, ambitious and 'funny' group of women I was fortunate to hang out with!

Awesome!



I'm booking her soap making class in November also!!

Natural Soy Candle Making Class


This class was a birthday gift and we chose to book Elena for a private candle making class for the three of us! Elena is a wonderful teacher, passionate about her craft and we loved the experience. Fantastic to learn some of the more theoretical elements of candle making and a private class meant that we had more 1:1 time with Elena. She welcomed us into her home, we brought wine and nibbles and it was a fabulous afternoon!

Natural Soy Candle Making Class


Such a very heart warming welcome we got from the moment we stepped in to her cute little workshop. With her beautiful products of soap on display, I definitely felt inspired to bring out the artistic side of my being. Elena was very informative, detailed and down to earth. Bella, her gorgeous pup, even made me feel at home and homesick at the same time - snoring away while we melt and create our morning away! We even got some little giveaways to take home in addition to the candles we made. It was an absolute pleasure to sit Elena’s soy candle making class and would definitely recommend it. 5 star indeed!

There was a huge array of fragrances to choose from and Elena helped us to make beautiful candles for ourselves. I am looking forward to trying out her soap making class also!

Elena was a nice person, however the class was a bit disorganised. I was expecting the course to be more professional for the price.

We were 8 in total, a smaller group would have been better given the small room, we were lacking of space to put out the essential oils, colours, etc.

Elena was a wonderful teacher - She was lovely, informative and made effort to make everyone feel comfortable. I brought my 10 year old daughter to the course and she loved it too. We walked away with 4 candles each, all different scents and learnt so much about where to buy the supplies if we wished to make more, how to make them properly and how to care for our candles. Her studio was a perfect size, we had 6 in our class and we all learnt so much. Thank you again so much Elena, we really loved your class and every time we use our candles, we will remember the lovely time we had.

Soap Making Workshop


We had a really nice time. Learned the basics of soap making with a lot of extra special advice and personal experience. Plenty of choices for fragrance and colour and design. Venue is a bit cramped for 6 as there is a lot of gear needed. Lesson was clear if a wee bit disorganised, but this did not affect the outcome. Everyone's questions were answered and everyone created beautiful soaps.

Highly recommend the candle making class - it was fantastic and really good value. Elena the teacher was generous with her resources and advice.

Natural Soy Candle Making Class


The candle course was great. The quality of material and instructions were excellent. The teacher was able to explain faults and techniques through her own trial and error. I am really happy with the 4 candles I made and feel confident to make them on my own. The teacher also makes soap and was very generous in giving the group some to take home.
I think the course would be even better if the teacher was able to teach more than soy wax candles. I would have liked to try making candles out of other wax ie Bees Wax.
Overall it was a great course and would recommend it to others.

Response from teacher: Thanks for your review. Please note that the class description clearly states that the candles will be made from soy

This is my 2nd candle course as my 1st one was somewhere else but didnt feel I really learnt enough. This was another course. Also the candles made were very basic. But elena really explained exactly how to do the candle making really well. She made it enjoyable and the materials provided were excellent. The end result I had made 4 luxurious looking and smelling candles.
In Elena's studio its relaxed, easy going and great one to one tuition. She gives good advice and really helps you. She provides fresh fruit and herbal teas. I definitely would do another course with her. Highly recommend, lovely teacher.

Elena was a great teacher - very pleasant and engaging. The venue was cosy, enough room for a small class of 5 which was perfect. Everything was provided for the class, enough to make 4 candles which was fantastic value (one is missing in my picture as it was still setting). There were many fragrances to choose from as well. My friend and I definitely came home with skills we could use again. I have already used one of the candles and it smells great and burns well - signs that the class was worth it! Thanks for a fun and creative class Elena!

Natural Soy Candle Making Class


I was really excited about this class and attended with my son 11yrs. I did not know how much we would both actually enjoy it.
Set up in an intimate workshop environment perfect for candle makig with all the tools we could possibly need set up already for us. Along with notes. All we needed was a pen for additional notes and a nose to make the tough choice of what fragrance for our candles.
The beauty of this class was not that we made one candle, Elena had us make 4, different sizes and wicks. So by the end we understood what we were doing and how to make adjustments and measurements. Elena also bought a wealth of experience and hints and tips she generously shared that only experience can offer.
Elena our teacher was a delight, she ensured we were not only having a great time- that we were also really understanding the process and able to make decisions to do this at home. She made it really simple and as easy to follow as a recipe. There was another lady who had made some candles in the class as well and it was great how much she was adding to her knowledge as it was us learning the ropes.
Not only did we walk away with all this knowledge we walked away with 'store quality artisan candles' . My son and I were so impressed with ourselves. When we returned home we proudly displayed the candles and my husband rolled his eyes and said we went to the course to learn how to make candles, not buy them... Imagine how shocked he was to learn they were the candles WE made BY OURSELVES!!!!! Thank YOU Elena!!!
It was a great afternoon and flew by and we are inspired to do more.

I had a very good experience attending this workshop! Elena was very friendly and very welcoming. She allowed us lot of time to select our chosen scents for the candles.She had many scents available and was very generous with materials for us to use. She walked through the candle making process ,list of tools needed and told us where to get all the materials needed so we will be able to start making candles at our own home. She also allowed us ample time to add finishing touches (dried flowers) to our candles. I would recommend this class to my friends who are interested to start making their own candles to also attend this workshop!
Thank you Elena :)!!!

Such a fun afternoon making divine candles. Elena made us all feel so welcome and by the time I left, I felt like I could easily create beautiful candles at home. I also left with the knowledge on where to purchase everything I would need to start my own hobby up. I am burning one of my candles now and my whole house is filled with the most heavenly scent. If you love candles and enjoy being crafty, pop along to Elena's and spend a few hours making new friends, learning how to make your own amazing candles, laughing and generally having a great time.

i recently attended Elanas candle making workshop as part of a surprise hens activity for myself and my friends. I knew I wanted a creative workshop and this surpassed all my hopes. It was informative and a lot of fun mixing up 3 different candles from our chosen scents. We got to decorate them with flowers and put labels on our containers. The best part was for myself and my friends to be able to take home some momentos of the day (which smelt great! And looked so professional) . This workshop was different to the normal hens activities and was perfect for me.

Elena was wonderful. Very welcoming and I was instantly happy with my decision to go to her class. I felt very comfortable and learned a lot. All the materials were provided and I was able to take what I made home as well as smell a wider range of candle scents rather than stick to my classic favourites. I had no problem speaking to her or asking questions on how to better my candle products and she did not hesitate to provide all the answers for me. Really enjoyed it.

Soap Making Workshop


The workshop was just what I was after. Elena knows her subject well, and supplied notes for us to continue with at home. We were able to make two different batches to our own design. I would recommend it as a very good introduction to making soap.

Soap Making Workshop


I enjoyed the soap making course alot. It was highly informative with lots of info at the beginning but we got to make two 400ml tubs of our own soaps to take home (about 10 slices altogether)
Venue was small but so cosy and elena offered herbal tea and muffins before we started our work.
Elena made a big effort to give us as much information as possible and she was fun and relaxed in her teaching.
V small class so we received good 1 to 1 help.
Excellent value. Elena went over the 3.5 hrs but didnt rush us which was great.
Tools and materials provided were really good.
A definite recommendation to this class if you want to have fun but also go home with the knowledge to make your own soaps to sell or give as beautiful gifts.

I thoroughly enjoyed the candle making class with Elena. It was a very relaxing Sunday afternoon and Elena was a great teacher, with lots of ideas and hints, she definitely knows her stuff. The class notes are great. We made 4 different candles. The class is definitely value for money. The location and room was very nice. Only 3 students so it was very personalised. I had a great time and I would highly recommend Elena's course if you are interested in learning how to make candles.

Elena is a wonderful and personable teacher. She teaches and provides you with everything necessary to make candles, and also provides a handbook you can take away with you so you can continue to make candles after the class.

She has a wonderful range of scents for the candles, so you are sure to find something that you love. You also come away from the class with at least 4 candles, the whole session is such good value. Bella the dog and Aria the cat are also amazing class helpers ;) Thank you Elena for a great afternoon experience.

Elena was an amazing teacher and taught us the top and tail of making candles. She has a huge variety of fragrances to choose from, so there’s something for everyone. The class goes at a leisurely pace, so it is perfect for a relaxing Sunday activity. The class price is very good value for money as we all went home with a box full of wonderful homemade candles (which would’ve cost much more in retail shops), and enough knowledge to make our own candles in the future. It is definitely a great class for beginners and I would recommend it to everybody.

The class was good value for money as we brought home one large, one medium, one travel tin, one shell and multiple tea candles.

It’s great for those who have no prior knowledge on how to make candles.

I was on holiday in Australia with my two children and I wanted to find something fun and unique to do. The candle making class with Elena was a nice surprise and we all had a fabulous time with lots of fun and laughter. Elena was very patient with the kids and explained everything in great detail. The candles turned out to be so beautiful and were perfect gifts for us to bring back home. I would highly recommend this class!

This class is excellent value for money and I am so pleased I did it and can't wait to get home and start creating my own!

Natural Soy Candle Making Class


I had a wonderful afternoon learning how to make candles. The teacher Elena was patient and knowledgeable, the class was interactive and fun. I made 2 glass candles, 1 travel candle, 2 shell candles and tea lights. I chose my fragrances, melted and poured the wax, learnt about the ratio of fragrance to wax and how to secure the wicks. I even chose miniature dried flowers to decorate each candle. I would thoroughly recommend this experience to anyone interested in learning about candle making as a hobby or even as a business. I did this class one on one, Elena came to my house, spent 3 hours with me and brought everything we needed. She also holds classes for up to 6 in her own home. It is very good value for money at $150, considering I spend on average $40 for a store brought candle. Now I can make my own for friends and family. Candle making is a skill that keeps on giving.

This course is amazing! Elena made me feel incredibly welcome. She is so knowledgeable on all levels and makes the whole process fun and easy to follow. Everything that was needed to complete the class was on hand and you go home with a wonderful goodie bag filled with you own home made candles, which look very professional. I can'r recommend this course highly enough. Thank you Elena for a fantastic class and experience! x

The candle class was terrific, Elena is a very well prepared teacher and she also provides all the tools for the candle making. At the end of the class you are able to make few different types of candles, with lots of advice on where to buy the tools for a cheaper price.
Definitely no lowlights in this experience!!
Elena is very clear, passionate and funny and she let you make anything by yourself, so it's more easy to remember all the procedures and steps.
I was excited before starting, but the class was even better than I expected! Thanks Elena!
