Was a fantastic introduction to candle making! I now feel really confident to make my own - which is exactly what I hoped to achieve out of the afternoon. Wonderful environment. Definitely value for money!

We learnt how to make soy & palm oil candles in glass & tin jars. We also learnt how to pour into a paper made candle so it is free standing once taken the paper off. It was a great class and I gained a lot of knowledge from it. I practically know how to make my own candle now from the class & where to get all supplies from!
