30 mins Class size 6 to 30     label $44 - $66 ($44 for Class only (no kit), $66 for Class and Kit)


This is a ClassBento LiveBox class! From the comfort of your home, share an artisan experience with your friends, family or colleagues, or enjoy with like-minded others. As seen on The Guardian, TimeOut, Broadsheet, Concrete Playground, Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, and more. Here's how it works:

  1. Request your preferred time
  2. We'll deliver a ClassBento Box to you - this is a physical DIY craft box containing the materials you'll need. Shipping is free, and it should arrive within 2-5 business days. We ship nationwide.
  3. Enjoy the online class. You'll receive a link to a Zoom meeting. On the day of the class, use that link to join the class. Class sizes are kept small, so you can easily ask questions and get immediate responses. Zoom is free and easy to use, on any device. You're in control of your privacy - you can mute yourself and hide your webcam if and when you prefer.

In this live streaming workshop, you will learn how to prepare, make and pour your own soy candles using eco friendly natural ingredients, and how to do so safely. 

We will show you the step by step process and how to add oils at the correct temperature to scent your candles.

We'll begin with a thorough explanation of the equipment and materials required and where to buy them so you can confidently set up at home and continue making beautiful eco candles.

Then we’ll move on to a detailed demonstration.

The box had everything we needed. Nichola was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The class started and finished on time, and Nichola answered all questions before she ended it. Her instructions were clear and easy to follow too. We had fun. The kit made one medium glass jar candle, 6 tea lights, 6 melts with wax left over. I highly recommend this course. Thanks Nichola!

Gabrielle Mason  •  Sep 2020


I was amazed at how efficient this class was! And fun! We made a candle, six tea lights and a set of melts and gained so much knowledge about the process- all in half an hour! It was really exciting to have such a beautiful and useful finished product. Nicola delivered the class in such a friendly, concise but informative way. I will definitely be back for more classes with the Handmakers factory, thank you.

easy to follow instructions before (for melting the wax and getting all the materials ready) and during the live streaming. Nichola answered all the questions we have and provided all the information we need to start making our own natural candles. Fun activity with the family too. Great to have the craft box as everything is included. Can't wait to use this newly made candles and make more natural candles as it just smells divine! Thanks Nichola

Jennifer Johns  •  May 2020


This class was great. The teacher was concise and clear and tried to engage the class well. The recommendations on where to buy things as well as having the written instructions and the recording provided is an amazing help when attempting this after the class.
The only downside is the colour i received for my candle was a Barbie Pink which is not very nice. I do understand this is just personal taste and luck though.

Thank you.

Sarah Dickson  •  May 2020


We decided to have a candle making class as a social activity to do with our clients as we cannot visit them due to COVID-19 restrictions. Due to Australia Post delays, we needed to allow about two weeks for the craft boxes to be delivered interstate but Nichola was accommodating in moving the class time for us.

This class was fantastic. Nichola was so kind and was a great teacher. We had an issue with Australia Post getting the package in time, and I didn't get it before my class, but Nichola was so accommodating with changing the date at the last minute and letting me collect the package. Thanks;;

Leah Karam  •  May 2020


It was good, just unfortunate that the video kept freezing. It would have been a great class. I still managed to finish my candle and it was successful so I say, great class! The box came on time (given the circumstances) and was perfect.

Thank you!
