label $125 - $160 (or 4 payments of $31.25 - $40 Afterpay)
($125 for 1 candle, $160 for 2 candles)

Join us in our friendly creative space in St Peters for a few hours of fun and creativity while learning everything you need to know to create your choice of either one or two of your own large beautifully fragrant candles.

Rebecca from Made by Me Workshop will take you through all the steps you will need to create your candles from premium soy wax. The workshop will start with an introduction to the fragrance wheel which will help you to understand why we like different scents and which ones blend well to make a pleasing fragrance.

Armed with an understanding of fragrance you will be ready to select your own fragrance for each of your candles, the biggest challenge will be narrowing it down from our enormous range of fragrances. You will then learn how to correctly melt your wax, and how to select and position the correct wick for your vessel before pouring your candles.

What you will learn:

  • The different types of wax and why we choose to use soy
  • The correct heat temperatures
  • The difference between essential and fragrance oils
  • An introduction to the fragrance wheel and how to properly scent your candle
  • How to calculate the amount of wax and fragrance to use
  • Wick selections
  • What equipment and tools to use and more

We pride ourselves on providing quality materials so that you achieve quality outcomes that you are proud to show off to your family and friends. Class sizes are always kept small so that you enjoy hands-on assistance while you learn and create.

Our workshops are as much about creativity as they are about connection, in our space you have the opportunity to meet new friends, share a few stories, laugh with each other and simply enjoy some time out for yourself.

We have tea and coffee making facilities and always some treats on hand. Please also feel free to BYO drinks, snacks, party essentials and friends to ensure your workshop is the best possible day or night out!


Knowledge required
Perfect for absolute beginners or those who have made candles before but want to try some new scents.
 
What you'll get
All the quality materials you will need to create one or two large candles each with a lid, access to our fragrance bar and full use of our tools and equipment.

Please note the candles need to set for 24 hours so they will need to be collected at another time or can be posted for an additional charge payable on the day.
What to bring
There is no need to bring a thing, we will provide you with an apron to wear during the workshop - we always recommend dressing comfortably and wearing "sensible" shoes - not need to dress to impress! We have water, tea, coffee and snacks.

Made by Me Workshop is about helping people to connect with their "inner creative" and have some fun while making beautiful things from quality materials in our friendly & vibrant studio space in the heart of the inner west!
Established in 2017 after Rebecca Doyle decided to take a career break and chose to revisit her childhood love for arts & crafts. Rebecca grew up in a large family where money was tight, after school activities where mostly homegrown and usually involved a sheet of cardboard, a glue stick and some glitter! It is probably no surprise to learn that Rebecca followed a creative path to study Fashion & Textile Design at University!
After a few more decades (than Rebecca will publicly admit to) and a long and varied career in the fashion industry, Rebecca wanted to get back to creating beautiful, one-of-a-kind objects - Made By Me Workshop is the result of where this path led.
Rebecca loves that moment of pride that comes over each participant's face when they look at what they have created and say to themselves "Wow - I made this & I love it!"
Made by Me Workshop run a variety of creative workshops, hen’s parties, private parties and corporate events from their studio space in Newtown including Resin Art, Resin Jewellery & Mould Making, Soap Making, Terrazzo Homewares, Punch Needle, Macrame and many more. We are also happy to travel to your venue or host your event in an alternative venue if you require a larger space to accomodate more than 10 people.

Great workshop making candles with Becky! Easy for all ages. Attended with my 12 year old daughter and she could follow all instructions. Loved learning about the fragrance wheel and the importance of wax temperatures. Choosing which combination of fragrances was the hardest decision. Definitely recommend.
