About your instructor

In 2009, I taught myself to make soy candles at home, and later also became a soap maker. Soon after, I established a successful bath, body and home fragrance brand from my small kitchen, and my creations were featured regularly in national magazines and newspapers. My products were stocked Australia-wide, sold in boutiques and chain stores around Australia, and I exported to Hong Kong and the U.S.A. After taking a break to have my kids, I returned to pass this knowledge on to others through workshops and supplies.
