Company workshop/party

This is a great activity to top or tail a business awayday.  

It is a fun, creative “hands-on” team activity where people can make something and socialise.

The first part of the workshop will start with an Icebreaker session of Guess the Fragrance – the group will be split into teams and given some different fragrance oils to smell to see if they can identify the fragrances.  A prize will be awarded to the best team!

This is then followed by a hands-on candle-making workshop that lasts circa 2 to 2.5 hours.  We start off with a brief introduction to candles and the many different types produced today; including the pros and cons of each type of wax. You’ll never look at a candle the same way again!  Then everyone learns three different candle-making techniques using natural soy wax and beeswax.

Each person makes a fragranced container candle in a tin and a pillar candle or floating candle.  These techniques involve melting wax in small individual melters. After that participants learn a rolling technique used to make beeswax candles.

Participants choose from a variety of fragrances and dyes to create their very own candle range. We can also use fragrances and dyes to create a theme – for example corporate colours, company values

The workshops can be held at your office premises or at a local hotel, etc.  

A typical workshop includes:

  • A “Chandler” (professional candle-maker) to demonstrate and help you during the party
  • Introduction to candle-making through the ages
  • Overview of the different types of wax, wicks, dyes, fragrances and candles
  • Demonstration of 3 different candle-making techniques
  • Using individual melters you melt two types of soy wax (container and pillar), add dyes, fragrance oils and wicks to make four types of candle: container, pillar/ floating and rolled beeswax
  • Finish your candles off with beautiful packaging and decorations
  • Everyone takes home their own candle creations and our user guide 
  • During the event we can take photographs and send these to you afterwards for you to share with your team

"I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU for the great evening. It was exactly what I wanted and the group talked about how great it was it the next day too. I have to say how impressed I was with the gentlemen – and how engaged and enthusiastic they were making candles!  The favours went down really well and were a lovely addition for the meeting attendees the day before."
