Who knew making candles would be so easy, great class for beginners and to walk away with a beautiful candle in a beautiful cup.

Great instruction, very easy to follow and love the scent! Came out better than a lot of store bought candles we have.

Claire Niven Mar 2021

Simple easy to follow instructions, Tara is a great teacher who makes you feel welcome - quite a feat on Zoom. Answers questions and is obviously very knowledgeable on all aspects of candle making. I had enough wax to make another little candle but didn't have another pretty cup to put it in.

I really enjoyed this class, Tara was knowledgeable and took her time to teach us about making soy candles - learned a lot about temperatures and how to choose the right wick and how much fragrance to add. I particularly appreciated the Japanese ceramic tea cup that we used, and can re-use for a tea cup! Thank you. Have left a photo of my candle - it has already had a workout!

Ewan Hartono May 2020

Tara was such a great teacher in the class - taught us a lot about the process of candle-making including how the indgredients are all organic (soy wax and essential oils, etc.). She also shared about her passion for her business which makes it that extra interesting. We felt like we made a little craft of our own in just under 1 hour and came away knowing how to make our own candle mix. Priceless experience thanks to The Provider Store! ️

Amelia Robson May 2020

So enjoyable! Tara is warm and enthusiastic and even though it was via Zoom, it didn’t feel impersonal at all. It was all very easy - I received an email asking which scent I’d like, then a box with all the supplies arrived promptly in the mail! The steps were simple to follow and at the end you get a beautiful scented candle in a Japanese ceramic cup. Can’t wait to do it again when we can do a face to face class, but in the meantime this was perfect.
