ADVANCED CANDLE-MAKING - PUBLIC WORKSHOP

Beehive_girls.jpg

Our half-day workshop will teach you the skills of candle-making so you can make your own, unaided at home. In addition to using natural soy wax we introduce you to two other popular waxes: petroleum and beeswax beads. This is very much a hands-on course where you practice what you have learnt. At the end you take home the candles you have made plus a copy of our step-by-step candle-making book and a candle-making kit to help you start making your own projects at home.

Part One

  • Create a “home” candle-making workshop, including the use of a double-boiler on your hob
  • Following the step-by-step guide and our support you make your own pillar and container candles using soy wax 
  • Calculate all the materials yourself including identifying the correct wick and calculating the quantities of wax, dyes and fragrance oils 

Part Two

  • Learn more about the different waxes: their characteristics and when to use each type depending on your project and requirements
  • Produce a taper candle using the traditional method of candle-dipping
  • Make a pillar candle using beeswax beads
  • Using different moulds, make a pillar candle with petroleum wax

Part Three 

  • Take home one of our candle-making kit plus our advanced user guide to get you started with your first candle-making projects
  • Access to our Facebook group for ongoing support and further inspiration
