You’ve tried the vanilla candle making classes,
We’re two scoops of knickerbocker glory.

This 1 day workshop teaches candle making in a fun and memorable way. It not only covers the basics of candle making but also more advanced skills. This is a practical workshop which includes some theory:suitable for absolute beginners. We’ll cover fundamental skills such as scenting, colouring, using wicks, melting and pouring wax in a safe way. We’ll then build up to the use of moulds and more advanced skills needed to complete a novelty candle. Depending on your preference and eco and vegan friendly waxes can be selected for use. Where translucent effects are needed for some novelty candles participants have the option of using paraffin wax. Specific guidance is given on the day.

What we’ll cover:

  • Equipment
  • Health and Safety
  • Wax types (including eco and vegan friendly waxes)
  • Wick types and selection
  • Scenting
  • Colouring
  • Layering
  • Using moulds/de-moulding
  • Containers
  • Cleaning equipment
  • Safety labelling

Expect to take home 2-3 smaller sized candles used to build up basic technique plus a main novelty candle. We’ll also supply notes plus light refreshments during the day.
