Your host, Sydney Community College 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)

Learn how to make your own soy candles and beeswax candles in this super relaxing and fragrant Sydney workshop. Your house will smell divine when you take home all of your handmade candles!

This class is great for beginners as you will learn about different types of waxes and their uses, wicks, fragrances and pigments, candle care and safety, and the different candle supplies needed to create your own.

The class will begin with an overview of candle making and then get straight into making your own stack of hand-poured candles. You will be able to choose the colour and fragrance of each of your candles, all designed for safe candle making.

When you finish the workshop you can take home all of your handmade candles, including two container candles, one soy melt and one beeswax candle. Burning them will create a lovely ambience and atmosphere and you will have the knowledge and skills to make your own once they run out!

For a vegan option, the beeswax candle can be replaced with another soy candle.

Louise fell in love with handmade crafts at age eight and developed a strong passion to live a natural and organic lifestyle that inspired her to learn about the art of candle making. The journey initially began as a mind-nourishing hobby that later flourished into a passionate career when her heart was captured by the amazing beauty that a simple fragrant candle brings, together with the calm and aromatic ambience it has to offer.

Her business Arcandles began here – crafted from a humble modest kitchen in Sydney, taking Arcandles friends to moments of beauty, bringing beautiful fragrances into homes, evoking cherished memories and uplifting spirits with this little flame. Louise would like to share her love and knowledge on candle making. She strongly believes that during the candle making process, students would be able to relief from their daily stressors, nourish their senses with therapeutic fragrances and feeling satisfied with their unique creations.

Great class - learnt everything I needed. Simple, easy to follow and Louise was a great communicator.

The trencher was informative and helpful. It was good being able to experiment with the colours and scents. We went home with some lovely candles.
