Nice and easy, quick class. It's great to be able to create something yourself. Great to be able to do something from home as we are in a lockdown in Melbourne.

Great class to do at home and everything needed for the class was provided in a package. The teacher was engaging and had a lot of useful tips in making a candle at home.

Jamie-Lee Emmett • Sep 2020

We loved this workshop A creative way for our business to spend some time together (virtually) and do something fun. Tara our host was so lovely, knowledgeable and down to earth and shared lots of extra tips and tricks for when we make some of our own candles.
A business that is also sustainable and environmentally friendly was a big bonus for us!
We’d happily do another one
Thanks Tara - we can’t wait to visit your store when we come to Sydney next xx

Tara took us through a basic candle making technique, with a lovely Japanese pottery cup. Gave clear instructions and let us know where we can buy the products to make our own at home. And at the end a beautiful candle to use in the home.

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.
