Love the strong scent of a beautiful long burning candle? Who doesn't! In this hands-on Sydney workshop, you will learn the basics of candle making and make your own container candles using food-grade paraffin wax.

Joining Victoria of Masterful Makers in her home studio in Sydney, we will cover:

  • Wax types, pros and cons
  • Equipment needed
  • How to choose a wick, fragrance and colour

During the workshop, you will make two large double wick scented container candles. Gloves will be provided as we are working with hot wax, fragrance oils and dyes.

At the end of the class, you'll have two completed candles which will be left at the studio in order to set. You can arrange to pick them up at a later date or organise postage with your teacher. You'll also receive notes on how to make your own candles at home.

This is a beginner's class to candle making, so no prior experience is needed. All materials and notes will be provided. You just turn up and be ready to have fun!

* Masterful Makers - DIY Workshops *

The art of being a maker!

Makers take raw materials and transform them into objects of desire. It is an art form, it is a craft, and it can be learned!

Come and experience a workshop with Masterful Makers. In as little as two hours you can walk out with a piece of handmade jewellery, leather bag, stunning knotted mala or your own personalised skincare products. All designed and crafted by you!

Let me introduce myself, I am Victoria White, a one-woman dynamo/mad scientist/designer and maker of crafts. I am the owner of Masterful Makers and offer boutique workshops from my studio.

My love for art, the history of man and pretty shiny things came together while being pregnant with my daughter and working for the Museum of African American Art in Florida. I fell in love with African trade beads. They were historical in context and heavy with human drama. They were an artefact, an antique and pretty. Pairing the few trade beads I had with semi-precious stones and sterling silver wire I began to make my first wrapped earrings.

It was very therapeutic and relaxing until my husband (at the time) saw the box of earrings I had made and took them to work. He returned that afternoon and presented me with a box of money, after having sold them all to his work colleagues! And that is how all this madness began.

That was a bit over 25 years ago. And here we are now!

I have my BA in art history and a Diploma in Visual Arts and Silversmithing.

I use my workshops to pass on my skills and knowledge so that you too will see just how enjoyable being a Maker can be. Coming away with personally designed and created pieces.

I am Victoria White and Making is my passion, let me make it yours as well.

Come and experience a Masterful Makers Workshop!

I had a great time making candles, the teacher was lovely and the materials were awesome

Deborah Xuereb Mar 2022


This class was hugely overpriced and terrible value for money. The studio premises were tiny, dingy and cramped. There was no signage on the street front and we had to call to seek entry to the building. The class was advertised as a two and a half hour class, but after an hour and a quarter it was over. I expected to receive some guidance in fragrance mixing but all fragrances were pre-mixed and there was not a great selection from which to choose. So basically, we were shown how to melt wax, add fragrance, place a wick and pour wax into the vessel.
Victoria was bright and bubbly but this really was not worth the $170 per person. There were three of us so it was a very easy $510 for her for an hour or so with very little outlay. Not recommended.

Victoria was so helpful I asked to do something a bit different, and she got straight onto it and I now have all the information and great candles to move forward.
Thanks Victoria and staff

The teacher knew her craft but not just candle making she had experience in other crafts and did not mind sharing stories.
The venue and equiptment was awesome and easy to find and use.

A fabulous afternoon with Victoria whom welcomed me and made me feel so comfortable in her home.

I came away with gorgeous smelling candles in which i was thrilled with.

I cannot wait to make some here in my own home. Victoria is a very dynamic and friendly teacher and so happy to answer any questions that u have.

Cannot wait to sign up for her other courses that she does.

Thankyou so much Victoria for a fabulous time. I learnt so much and who knows where i go from here.
