Description

Half day classes run 10am - 12.30pm which are held in Arcadia, in Sydney's rural north.

In one-half day we will cover all the basics. Soy wax, palm wax and and beeswax are used. During the day we will make many different candles, each one adding another skill to your experience. Watching others work will also give you more ideas. We also investigate other techniques outside the scope of the one day class.

3 soy tea lights, 1 jar candle, 1 rolled beeswax candle, 1 soy chunk pyramid, 1 crystal palm wax pyramid.

Techniques for making the other candles here will be discussed during the class.

  • Qualities and characterisitics of the wax
  • Soy and beeswax tealights
  • Soy wax candles in glass - single wick jar
  • Single sided moulds - pyramids - one SOY and one CRYSTAL PALM
  • Demonstration of double sided moulds, necessary due to the shape of the candles eg. balls and christmas trees
  • Beeswax foundation sheets rolled into candles
  • Making features such as chunks 
  • All materials used in the class are covered in your fee. You get to take home all the candles you make!

_____________________________________________________________________

AACM want to interact with their clients in the fairest manner.

These terms and conditions protect both you and AACM by defining our understanding of fairness in any transactions between us.

 

In times of high volume, such as November and December strains on procedures become evident.

We always do our best to maintain our self-imposed high quality of service and response times.

We appreciate your patience and loyalty during the busy times.

(As time passes these terms will morph according to new situations that arise.)
