Candles are a huge part of our lives. Interested in taking your love for candles to the next level? We did. It was an amazing experience and want to give you the same over a glass of wine (or BYO)!

We have taken a scientific approach to creating and teaching the art of candle making. The strength of our scent can fill a room without lighting a candle. So you can enjoy your favourite fragrances all day and night.

During this class, we will share with you our scientifically calculated formula for the ultimate triple scented candle.

This class is hands-on and we will come to your home with our equipment. All we need is a kitchen and some power. Throughout the class, you will learn how to make your own candles at home.

Our candle workshop is perfect for people wanting to learn more about candles, those who are looking for cute date ideas or a great way to make a gift for someone special.

Each full attendee will have their own hands-on workstation. Spectators will join and share with the main attendee. (We request one spectator per student to avoid overcrowding at one workstation).

Your candle teachers have worked in the medical and software field so we will have plenty to chat about if we run out of candle facts.

For Kids:
We dial back on the facts and ramp up on the creativity. For kids they will design and decorate their own candle labels which will be attached to the final master piece. Less talkie talkie and more doey doey.

Parent supervision is required due to height of kitchen benches and exposure to hot substances.

We have taken a scientific approach to creating and teaching the art of candle making. The strength of our scent can fill a room without lighting the candle. So you can enjoy your favourite fragrances all day and night.

Our hypothesis is to deliver powerful, affordable, long lasting candles. 'This Candle Experiment' wants to delivery a candle you can rely on. We want to empower everyone with knowledge that surrounds the art and science of candles.

We pride ourselves on being all Australian made.

We loved this class. We had fun, learned a lot and ended up making wonderful candles at the end. Everything is presented well and in easy to understand way, and there's no dull moment. Very happy with the experience and would highly recommend it.

What a great workshop. It was beyond all expectations of what my 22 year old daughter and I thought was "just" a candle making course. Jig our super knowledgeable and meticulous teacher was warm friendly and professional. Jig was happy and able to answer my numerous questions and was extremely generous with his knowledge treating the whole process of candle making like a science experiment. This was especially appealing to the OCD side of me and my Science Grad daughter.
The venue was homely but efficiently and stylishly set up for the workshop. All materials were provided with a great range of fragrance oils to choose from for making 2 candles.
This workshop was an entertaining and engaging learning experience which be both considered great value for money (especially for my daughter as I paid). I would not hesitate to recommend this workshop!

Great class to learn to make your own candles, and understand the science behind it all. I love the candles we made, they smell so lovely. Very happy and appreciative. Thank you so much

Odette Gan Jul 2022

I had started making candles but couldn't get a strong scent throw when it's been lit. I'm so happy to have found Wine and Wicks workshop as it helped me move forward with my candle making journey.

Jig was super informative and gave a lot of helpful information as he took the time to explain the reason behind the process. I learned so much more with this experience than just experimenting and watching YT videos.

I highly recommend this for those who want to learn the professional way and want to learn the tips and tricks at an accelerated level.

I booked the Wicks & Wine experience for my partner and I’s anniversary. Jig was a fantastic host. He created a beautiful atmosphere for us with champagne and chocolates. We couldn’t have asked for a better evening.

The class was highly personalised and educational. The hosts generously shared their candle-making resources with us afterwards. It was definitely worth the price.
Thank you!

We had fantastic time at this candle making class! The hosts were welcoming, very knowledgeable and clear in their instructions in the candle making process. It was a fun and hands on learning environment and an enjoyable experience. The hosts also shared their process and materials so we could continue making candles at home. Highly recommend.

Really wonderful Teachers and having only 3 or 4 in a session made sure everyone had 1:1 support.
Thoroughly recommend if !

Juneper Garganera Jun 2022

Mentors are both helpful and lectures are very informative. And all materials are provided well and very organised.

Fiona Caheny Jun 2022

This class was not what I actually expected, it went way beyond that. My private class with Jig was fabulous and educational. I learnt so much about candle making and now have a great respect of what it takes to make a quality candle. I was made to feel welcome and the chat flowed non-stop. I have two beautiful candles to enjoy. This class is definitely value for money. I highly recommend.

Thank you to Jig who ran a fabulous class for the true beginner. It was much more than I expected - so much detail and so well presented and so much information so willingly shared. A lovely afternoon spent learning something g new. The food on offer was delicious and I was really welcomed into the learning space. Thank you Jig I really enjoyed myself and I have walked away today a little wiser with a new skill. Loads of practice but I am excited to be able to experiment with soy wax. Can’t wait to get started in my kitchen creating my very own candles. Highly recommend this course to those wanting to start out on the candle making journey. You are in good hands with Jig. Good value for money.

I had a fantastic time at the candle making class with Jib and Meera. They created a relaxing but fun environment with food, wine, great chats and an adorable cat to boot. They have perfected the technique to make amazing candles that will rival and surpass any premium ones you can buy in-store. Highly recommend taking this class!

Anthea Ledwidge Jun 2021

Really great workshop Super chill, super informative. Jig and Meera were amazing hosts. We loved it :)

Annushka Elyasian May 2021

Meera and Jig were informative, friendly and welcoming teachers. Their home was neat and tidy and well equipped to teach my friend and I how to create scented candles. The equipment was suitable. The value was good - we took home 3 candles (two of which we poured ourselves) including all the knowledge they have gained since they started pouring. We learnt the different types of waxes, temperatures to pour, different containers, understanding fragrance loads, how to calculate the fragrance load to wax. I am able to create candles myself at home after the session. I would highly recommend.

Helen Giacomo May 2021

Amazing afternoon learning the art of soy candle making! Maestro Jib and Meera made it easy and fun with a refreshing G&T, cheese snacks and passion for this art. Sharing their knowledge and passion was evident from the moment I entered their inviting space. The class is intimate and very hands on. Their instructions and attention to detail made it easy to follow and resulted in addictive aromas and two wonderful handmade soy candles and a 3rd take home pack! 5 ⭐️ for a great afternoon and quality take home soy candles. Thanks Jib and Meera
