With expert instruction from Lisa, a candle maker with 15 years of experience, you will learn everything you need to know about creating your own soy wax candles and a reed diffuser through step-by-step instructions, demonstrations and hands-on practice.

Don't worry if you don't have any experience, as this class is completely beginner-friendly, with a casual and fun atmosphere. You will be gently guided by Lisa in a safe, supportive, and friendly environment to learn the basics of making candles.

In this class you will learn:

  • The basic techniques of soy candle making.
  • How to add fragrance oils and colour (optional) the correct way.

On arrival, you will be welcomed with a complimentary glass of bubbles, tea or coffee and a grazing platter.

DIY kits will be available to purchase after the class if you wish to continue practising your new skills at home. A 20 per cent discount will be given to class attendees on the day. At the end of class, you'll leave with two soy wax candles and a reed diffuser to take home and add some lovely scents to your living space!

Hi, I'm Lisa from Aroma Shak. I lovingly create natural plant based, aromatherapy skincare products & bath products, i have also created my own essential oil range. I also create beautifully fragranced soy wax candles & soy wax melts.

My handmade journey started 15 years ago. I was very drawn to aromatherapy and the magic of essential oils and started my aromatherapy studies to delve deeper into the magic and healing of the plant world. Through this i discovered my passion for incorporating what i had learnt in my studies and using it to create a naturalskincare range. !
Around the same time i purchased a D.I.Y soy candle making kit - then i was hooked! I have been selling my skincare, candles & melts through markets, shops and more recently online. My products are also used by a local beautician.

Fifteen years on, I still formulate and hand make our eco-luxe natural products. I am now so excited to take the leap and share my passion and knowledge for natural body product creating and of course our soy candle, soy wax melt and diffuser workshops.

My workshops are such a great idea for hen's and bridal shower, birthday parties and team building.

I'm so excited to share my love for handmade with you.

Love x Lisa x

Lisa was a very enthusiastic teacher giving lots of tips for making candles at home after the class as well. The inclusion of a grazing platter and Prosecco was a very welcome touch. It was a great class and really good value for money.

The trainer was friendly and helpful. She provided a yummy morning tea which provided socialisation for me. The trainers instructions were clear and transparent and offered loads of ideas. She took the time to help each participant when needed. The products provided to make the candles was exceptional and generous. The trainer was conscious of safety at all times thus providing a safe workspace. I absolutely had a great morning making new friends and achieving scented candel making products to take home. These workshops are affordable for me and a great opportunity to meet new people and learning knew and fun skills.
