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

The class covers the basics of fragrance design and how to work with fragrance oils and soy candle wax to craft high-quality candles that you will want to make again and again! We provide light snacks, 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 scents that you like, which will be useful when designing your own fragrances.

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

Edwina Woods Jun 2022

Cathy Potter Jun 2022

We had a fantastic day. When I booked this class, I spoke with Rachel and explained that my sister had just had life changing surgery. Our experience doing this candlemaking class was described with words lovely, fun, wonderful, enjoyable and really nice, by my sister and her friend who’d travelled from interstate to do it. How beautiful that Chris, Rachel and Sarah, all family, created this company to spend more time together, as a family. They have brought that foundation of togetherness, and family, into their classes, and into their company. I asked for good endorphins for my sister, and our experience with Class Bento Lucian Candles far exceeded our expectations. A absolutely wonderful experience. Thankyou for your kindness and your wealth of knowledge that you so willingly shared xx

the class has been very helpful and I am more confident to try making candle on my own. The teacher was very helpful and politely clarified all the queries I had regarding candle making.
It has been an interesting experience.

Really great value for money workshop and so much fun! Highly recommend for anyone wanting a peaceful afternoon of creating

Malia Naupoto Jun 2021

Friendly, sociable, fun, engaging and informative class which resulted in your own set of candles and a sense of accomplishment. Set in a relaxed and cosy setting, the wonderful Lucian team prpovide you with the resources and the know-how to introduce you into the world of soy candle making. You receive a greater awareness and appreciation for the work of soy candle makers and after smelling a multitude of scents you get to create your own from scratch and it is an incredible feeling (not to mention taking them home with you and the special quirky lid designs you come up with - optional but definitely recommended). Light snacks and refreshments are provided, which are delicious but would recommend ensuring dinner plans (and dessert) are pre-planned as well. Overall well worth the money and it is time well spent!

The teachers were friendly and engaging. They gave us a lot of freedom to try different scents and make our own fragrances. Great value being able to make 5 candles to take home. The food provided was also really yummy. Would recommend this to others!

All the components - venue, tools, facilitator, were fine. No area in need of improvement. Thank you.

Dominica Joseph May 2021

What an amazing opportunity. Our instructors were the loveliest people, the 3 hours were streamlined to ensure we all had maximum opportunity to engage with the craft and take home exactly what we had planned for. There choice of fragrance was endless, the equipment so very easy to use and the relaxing atmosphere (which included food and drinks) made for a very enjoyable and productive afternoon.

Jessica Sharp Apr 2021

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.

Elyse O'Connor Aug 2020

Relaxing, fun and lovely to try something new. Teacher was excellent. Very nice cheese platter as well.

Noreen Cashman Jul 2020

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

Callum Florance Jul 2020

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.

Hiba Attar Mar 2020

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!
