Candle Making Workshop


Fantastic workshop - the candle making process was clearly explained, the choice of scents was brilliant (we will definitely be back!) and the final product we made and took home felt like a really premium item. The sparkling wine and cheese board was a great addition.

Our team very much enjoyed our candle making experience with Tara! The Provider Store was a lovely venue - especially the smell of all the candles. The materials she provided were high quality, and we loved the re-usable, multi-purpose teacup. The cheese board and champagne was a nice touch, definitely adding good value for money. We would 100% return for another candle making workshop - or even potato printing!

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.

Candle Making Workshop


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!

Candle Making Workshop


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.
