Avid candle shopper to candle making master, join Vishakha Patel for this hands-on Sydney 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.

Over two and a half hours, 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
  • Explore our collection of exotic fragrances and pick the ones that you'd like in your candles
  • Select the colour of your candles if you'd like or decide to leave it an elegant white
  • 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, this is what you would have made all of what you'd take home to flaunt to your friends and family:
  • Two jar candles 230 ml
  • Two bowl candles 250 ml
  • Two fragrance blocks (to keep in your car and closet) 50 ml
  • Three tea light candles 60 ml

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

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?

So, in my pursuit of the little joys of life that would bring me an experience as well as a creative satisfaction, I explored making candles. I have been actively making soy candles in last 4 years, and off late, I have had the pleasure of hosting candle making socials at my apartment.

In my journey of hosting the candle workshops in Sydney, I have come across a range of creative people, many of whom discovered this to be a fun hobby and some who have taken it further and started selling online. I look forward to share this experience with you!

V was a fantastic teacher who was enthusiastic, knowledgable and kind throughout.

She supplied an extensive range of materials, scents and decorations for the candles. And we walked away with many candles from our class which was lovely. Couldn't recommend more!

Vishakha was very welcoming, she had everything beautifully setup for us in her penthouse balcony with 270 degree city views. We had a bit of a chat over her self blended herbal tea as we waited for others to join. As we started, the surprise goodie bags of handmade gifts awed us all. She explained everything step by step and took us through the process of candles-making right from where to source the quality materials from, the measurements, the formula, the science behind the right wick size, what temperature to heat the wax upto, when to mix the fragrances and the dyes, what temperature for pouring, when to put the deco's as well as how to rescue your candles in case you miss those timings. The tops came out clean the first time right and it made me only proud as this is my first attempt at making candles. We carried all of our creations home, which was 3 bowl candles and 2 jar candles plus 3 fragrance blocks and a couple of tea-lights so it's a lot for the price I paid. I thank her for the amazing workshop and highly recommended her classes.
