Avid candle shopper to candle making master, join Vishakha Patel for this hands-on live streaming workshop and discover how to make candles yourself!

When Vishakha first started making candles, she didn't realize that what started out as just another new experience would turn into a passion she wouldn't be able to get enough of.

Share the joyful experience of hand-pouring natural soy wax candles with blissful fragrances.

Class outline:

  • Understand the material and equipment needed
  • Choose the right size wick
  • Discuss the secret candle formula
  • Pouring at right temperature
  • Pampering the candles, packaging and presenting!

Your teacher will also share some really practical tips and information for trouble-shooting so that you leave not only with the beautiful candles you would have made, but also the knowledge that you can do it on your own in future.

At an end of a session, you would have made a beautiful, scented candle yourself to flaunt to your friends and family while you still have the material in your craft kit ready to make a few more candles later on.

And it's no secret that the scented candles would make perfect gift ideas for any occasion, for they are both festive and timeless.

What you'll need

I have always had that intuitive urge to 'create' something with a purpose: a new vegetarian recipe, a cake that would still be calorie-friendly, a soap that would nourish my skin with essential oils, a paining that would tell a story of my childhood, a candle that would smell divine?

By day, I am a fulltime ICT Professional helping product teams build great software applications that deliver an awesome User experience. In my moonlight hours and occasionally on weekends, I enjoy this experience of facilitating crafts workshops at my adorable apartment thereby follow my own passion (thank God I found a way), do what I love (or else no point yea), exercise my entrepreneurial skills (or at least I would think so), stay emotionally healthy (this one is real), meet new people (when Sydney reportedly is world's 3rd worst city to make new friends), and do my bit of promoting mental health.

In my journey of hosting the picnics, cooking, baking, fitness and crafts experiences in Sydney, I have come across a range of creative people, many of whom discovered things to be a fun hobby and some who have taken it further and started selling stuff online.

My pursuit of the little joys of life continues as I look forward to share these experiences with you!
