What a fantastic class Elena is such a great teacher and I am grateful she shared her knowledge of candles with us. We had quite a selection of fragrances to choose from and It was just a stunning sunny afternoon in her home with beautiful scents from the candles we made! 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. Thank you again Elena and for your tips and tricks :)

Tania El-Alami • Sep 2019

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!


I'm booking her soap making class in November also

Denise Cheng • Sep 2019

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!

Howaida Alameddine • Sep 2019

Elena was awesome enjoyed the class so much she was so informative learned a lot from her loved it

Giovanni Reyes • May 2019

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!

Laura Suter • Mar 2019

I very much enjoyed this class with Elena! She was very knowledgeable and gave us great resources to conitnue to make soy candles at home. 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! The photos do not do the candles justice (one is unpictured as I already gave it away), I choose not to decorate mine but there were beautiful dried flowers to pick from.

Jinsiu Du • Jan 2019

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.

Malua Setu • Jan 2019

Highly recommend the candle making class - it was fantastic and really good value. Elena the teacher was generous with her resources and advice. The result was 4 unique candles and the ability to choose from 50 fragrances and decorative elements. If you're lucky you may get a sample of her soap and bath bombs too.

Ashima Chaudhary • Jan 2019

Great class, loved the experince. Bellanina is very knowledgeable and was able to answer so many questions for us and bust many myths about candle making. I did it with my 14 year old son as a school holiday activity and we had a great time. Cant wait till try out own candles.

Candle Making workshop review by Ashima Chaudhary Sydney

Leane Dadd • Dec 2018

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

Kathleen Hanna • Dec 2018

Elena was a great teacher and explained everything really clearly.
Had no idea how easy candle making was! It was a lovely atmosphere to learn as well!

Viviana Pineda • Dec 2018

The class, the teacher and all the materials supplied exceeded my expectations. Very happy with the results :)

Merciana Suess • Dec 2018

Teacher was great easy going, gave us pros and cons of making proper candle. Super

Lucienne Calvi • Nov 2018

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.

Deena Mehjabeen • Dec 2018

The venue was homely and cozy. Elena is very friendly and served fruit and tea which was a nice welcome. Elena even gave me the soaps she makes which was a really sweet gesture and much appreciated. Bella the dog was too adorable. I got to learn all about candle making and what to think about before starting a business.

Candle Making workshop review by Lily Widodo

Ayesha Wijesinghe • Nov 2018

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!

Candle Making workshop review by Ayesha Wijesinghe

Tiffany So • Nov 2018

Elena is so welcoming and is very generous with her time, knowledge and equipment! Her classes are perfectly paced and planned. Classes are very small and intimate and have a lovely atmosphere.

Natural Soy Candle Making Class review by Jesse Chapman

Katherine Beaumont • Nov 2018

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.

Danny Khem • Nov 2018

Elena was a lovely person, and very welcoming. The class was very informative, without being boring. She had a vast range of different fragrances to choose from and was more than happy to tell us where to get certain products/materials if we wish to make candles at home.

Scott Whitcombe • Nov 2018

I completed this course yesterday, Elena is a lovely person, a very good set up, and I highly recommend this course if you were wanting to make candles.

Yu Chan • Nov 2018

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 :)

Teacher was very generous with her time and info. Great class with fantastic insider info from a real candle maker. Got everything I need from the class to order equipment and supplies online and start my own candle making.

Sandie Tate • Oct 2018

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 highly recommend this course.

Chelsea Li • Oct 2018

Elena was so lovely and accomodating. She has everything set up to go and answered any questions we had about candlemaking. Definitely recommend.

Ilana • Sep 2018

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.

Analee Younan • Sep 2018

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.

Lauren Nethery • Sep 2018

Suzi • Sep 2018

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.

Tracey • Sep 2018

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.

Joanne Luu • Sep 2018

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.

Candle Making workshop review by Joanne Luu

Esther Chia • Aug 2018

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.

Linda Lo • Aug 2018

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!

Rosina • Aug 2018

I had such a great time today! Elena was so much fun, she is so passionate and generous with her time and information. She invited me into her beautiful home which was full of her candle masterpieces and gorgeous smelling oils.
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!

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.

My daughter and I had a great afternoon making candles with Elena. It was hands on and everything was explained clearly. All we needed was provided and we brought home 4 candles each. The afternoon was so enjoyable and Elena is lovely. Great fun, great conversation and beautiful candles! Thank you Elena!

Elena was a really fun teacher. She guided us clearly and was helpful every step of the way, also whenever there's a question she does her best to answer. The class was definitely worth it.

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!

I had a wonderful day with Elena learning from scratch. She was very thoughtful and thorough and helped me with the confidence to be able to do it again myself. Highly recommended.

We all loved our afternoon making candles with Elena. Such a fun activity to do for children and adults together. Elena guided us through the process and we have lots of beautiful scented candles to enjoy now.

Elena is one i would highly recommend to anyone interested in candle making.Never met anyone like her so honest and eager to share her knowledge .

Fantastic class and wonderful experience! Elena was so bubbly, open and such a joy to learn from. She went out of her way to teach us the tricks of the trade and made it such a special day. With all the home-made goodies we took home, great value for money. We'll be back for sure!

Elena was welcoming and very happy to share everything about candle making, there was a large choice of fragrances to choose from and made several candles, would highly recommend.

Natural Soy Candle Making Class review by Yolanda  Sydney
I wanted to ask if the soap making class uses essential oils (instead if fragrance oil) and what types of colorants eg micas.. and clays? Also do you use palm oil? Or can we use an alternative, thank you

I’m happy you asked me these questions and I’m happy to answer you.

I don’t use palm oil and good news there are many alternatives.
I use only essential oils for soap, no fragrances.
I use natural colourants like spirilina active charcoal and cocoa powder but
also Mica and clay.

I decorate the soap with organic dried flowers like calendula, lavender,
cornflower, chamomile and rose petal.

If you have any other questions I’m happy to hear them
