Candle Making Workshop


We hosted a hens event at Tara’s studio and we really enjoyed her class! We loved how thoughtful she was throughout the class and it was the little things she did from the cheese platter and drinks provided to being really informative about the candle making - it was such a great experience! Would definitely recommend this to people! Thank you Tara for giving us such a great class and being such good company!

I loved this class with Tara on Saturday. Tara was a great teacher very patient, knowledgeable and friendly. I have already lit my candle and it smells lovely and to know I have a Japanese Tea Cup after the was has all gone it a great bonus.
We had a great group of people in our class on Saturday so that was an added bonus.
Thanks Tara

She was friendly, inspirational and knowledgeable.
Had a great time making candles with her.
She made us feel welcomed and give attention into details by asking each one of us if we need any special needs.

This was such a really nice, relaxed and fun experience. Tara the owner proprietor of Provider Store is an amazing human being from Central Coast with a beautiful pup who really loves what she does.
The candles smell fantastic - although I dropped mine getting out of the car :( (luckily I bought a spare!)
Definitely a sustainable business worth supporting via cheese, wines and making your own candle!
We will be back for certain!

My girlfriend and I both thought this workshop was great fun, being taught by Tara how to create a candle was an awesome way to spend an afternoon.
We both chose a different scent and have already tried doing it ourselves at home. Thanks Tara!

It was an amazing experience. The teacher was super helpful and we learnt more than we thought about candle making. We got to go home with a beautiful handmade candle in a gorgeous Japanese handmade teacup. Would highly recommend it!

My favorite part of the entire class was the teacher.
Not only was she very helpful and down to earth but all of her materials as well as her business as a whole are sustainably conscious. I liked it so much I might even go again just to make candles and hang out - highly recommend it!

Highly recommend, fun and laidback class. The handmade Japanese tea mug and sophisticated scents give you the most beautiful candles! Tara can refill the candles or you can use them for tea, plus there’s champagne and nibbles, so you really get your money’s worth.
