Soy Candle Making Class

Learn soy candle making instructions



2 hours Class size 1 to 40 label $95


In-person classes are permitted in Queensland, under the state government's guidelines

Your host, Work-Shop is COVID-19 aware

This means that this teacher won't run a class if they've had flu symptoms in the last 14 days, and will adhere to relevant state restrictions (e.g. on maximum number of students per class)

Soy candles are a beautiful addition to any space. Brooke will guide you through all the steps to create your own unique and exceptionally pretty scented soy candles!

Soy are the ideal candle as they produce low soot and a clear burn. You will learn about the equipment needed, how to embed the wick, incorporate a desirable fragrance load and colour your candle creations. Brooke will also provide petals and other things to thoughtfully decorate your finished product. You will leave with three candles of varying size.

Class sizes will be limited and are suitable for teenagers and adults. No previous experience is necessary.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get
  • Premium soy wax, fragrances, colour and glasswear to make 3 candles.

  • Take-home candle making instructions

What to bring
  • A box to transport your fiery new creations

Work-Shop is a creative concept that will broaden your horizons and help you unleash your inner awesome. We provide affordable short courses in life skills and alternative art. We’ve teamed up with Australia’s brightest creative minds to share their knowledge and help teach you a new skill. From 3D printing and stencil art through to music and gardening – life skills and personal development through to cooking doughnuts and mushroom foraging, we offer a broad range of fun and creative short courses to suit our time poor lives. We will inspire you to pick up that pen, paintbrush, hammer or sewing machine and flick the switch that will kickstart a whole new way of life.

Community values lie at the heart of our project. We collaborate with local artists and industry experts to teach classes and utilise local suppliers for any materials needed. We also provide a creative environment for emerging artists to produce and sell work, and meet like minded individuals. Work-Shop will be a space for everyone, with a rotating schedule of art shows, information nights on local issues and a whole range of events and community initiatives.

The teacher was really patient and relaxed making the class fun. There were plenty of supplies and she was generous with her tips and ideas.

Brooke was great. Friendly and approachable. Explanation provided were clear. It was a lot of fun. Although the venue was hot, there were a lot of people, it was still enjoyable! I loved what I brought home. Can definitely make more at home.

Had such a great time My candles weren’t great (operator fault) but the class was extremely enjoyable. Teacher was very patient and kind and I will certainly be looking to do more of her workshops

Paula Lombardo • Mar 2020


Well organised, lots of fun and informative and relaxing. No stress or pressure. Would have liked PDF instructions emailed though. But otherwise great day!

Helen Farley • Mar 2020


The class was great. I really enjoyed it - it moved along quickly and smoothly and Brooke our teacher was great - she was friendly helpful and passionate about her classes. The supplies were lovely and we had a nice selection of colours and oils to choose from. I had a fun time and enjoyed my time. It was the second class I had done there.
It was just such a humid day, and wax did not set as quickly as hoped, but can't help the weather right. More time for chatting and getting to know the other ladies.

Ann-Maree Pantoja • Mar 2020


Brooke was friendly, easy going and full of useful tips so we could be on our way making soy candles at home. We got to make three candles in class to take home which was great!
