Hen Party

Group_Hens.jpg

For the crafty and creative hen - a great way to get friends and family together, have some fun, learn a new skill and end up with lots of fabulous candles.

We start off with “Guess the Fragrance” - where all the fragrances are wedding themed. Hens are split into small groups and given different fragrance oils to smell - to see who can best identify each of the fragrances!

Next is a brief introduction to candles and the many different types available on the market today. You’ll never look at a candle the same way again! After that hens learn three candle-making techniques: container, pillar and rolled candles.

Container and pillar candles are made by melting two types of soy wax flakes in small electric melters and the beeswax candles are produced using multicoloured wax sheets and an overlay rolling technique.

The choice of dyes, coloured sheets and fragrances is almost endless – ensuring no two candles are the same and each hen creates her own unique candle range!

  • Party run by a “Chandler” (professional candle-maker)
  • “Guess the Fragrance” - all of which are wedding themed
  • Introduction to candles and the many different types available on the market today
  • Using individual melters, melt two types of wax, add dyes, fragrance oils and wicks to make three types of candle
  • Finish your candles with beautiful packaging, organza bags and decorations
  • Hens take home their wonderful self-made candles and our user guide so they can make more at home

The party can be themed to the Hen’s personal preference with coloured dyes, fragrances and moulds to match the wedding theme! You can also make your own wedding favours and/or table decorations.
