In this hands-on candle making class in Canberra, you'll learn how to make your own scented soy candles.

The class will cover the basics of fragrance design and how to work with fragrance oils and soy candle wax to craft high-quality candles you will want to make again and again! We will provide light snacks and refreshments, be sure to list any dietary requirements when you book.

The class begins with a quick game to get your nose working and recognising some familiar scents. This game helps you develop a list of fragrances that you like, which leads to the next activity.

During the fragrance design lesson, you'll learn the basics of the olfactory pyramid. This understanding will help as a foundation for you to create your own scents. Lucian's experienced fragrance designers will be there to give feedback and help you along the way.

As you add the soy wax and fragrance oil together, you'll be taught the finer points of candle making, regarding temperatures, ratios and pouring techniques. Plus some time to pick our brains for your future candle making while your creations set.

If you opt to make diffusers, you walk away with two sets with reeds that will last six to twelve months. Lucian's workshop hosts will help you will apply your knowledge of scents while mixing your unique fragrances with diffuser oils.

In early 2017, we began Lucian Candles with the hope of making home fragrances that are essential elements of home decor and scents that provide luxury.

Great class and excellent value for money. Was done in a little cafe in Phillip which worked well for serving the included drinks and afternoon tea which there was plenty of! The guys at Lucian Candles are lovely and more than happy to share any knowledge and tips about candle making. Would happily do another class with them.

A fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon! The teachers were lovely and generous with their time and knowledge, including where to buy supplies and how much they cost. The venue, Wheat and Oat in Fyshwick, is a cozy café, and great coffee and home made delicious sweet and savory treats were included. All materials were supplied, including five take home quality soy candles created and fragranced by participants, and a bonus reed diffuser. We were taught how to make candles, but the focus of the class was all about fragrance, and we created our own fragrances for our candles. Excellent value for money. Highly recommend.

Venue was beautiful, teachers were good and generous in sharing their knowledge. It was a bit difficult getting to the fragrances with so many in the class however we all seemed to manage. Would definitely recommend. Thanks for a fun class.

Teachers were excellent, very friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed the class and got to take home 5 beautiful candles. Would highly recommend.

Kate Morse  •  Jul 2020


Fabulous class and certainly value for money. We took home 5 candles in the scents we created - we were only limited by our imagination. Rachael and Chris were great teachers - very knowledgeable, approachable and genuinely nice people. Can not recommend this class highly enough :)

Scarlett Conroy  •  Jul 2020


Was so much fun and the teachers were really friendly. We got the take home 5 candles that we made with our own personalised scent . Would highly recommend

Fantastic overall! The perfect evening class - the teachers were kind and I appreciate being able to take something home afterwards (five candles).

Enya Caffarelli  •  Mar 2020


The teachers were lovely and very helpful, they also provided light snacks which was so nice. The materials provided were in excellent condition. The value for money was spot on! Not only do you walk out with 5 candles you get to make yourself, but the value of learning how to do it for yourself at home as well makes it even better. I would do this again and I’d recommend to friends.

This class was really funny and definitely value for money. Everything was supplied to us including tea and yummy food. The venue was nice although maybe some more lights and signage as to which way to go in the venue would have been handy. I think also more working space would be great as the room was quite large and we had small tables with many people to a table to work with. Very minor things though, the teacher was great and friendly and I loved the end result of my candles!
