Candle Making Workshop

This is an intensive 1 hour workshop aimed at beginners, aged 16 and above. You will be working with hot wax, so while attending the workshop, it is your responsibility to ensure that you maintain and adhere to all safety precautions and requirements during the workshop.

Come and join us in our welcoming and creative hub located in St Ives! Spend an hour immersed in fun and creativity while learning the art of crafting beautifully fragrant candles. During this workshop, you'll have the option to create two unique candles of your choice.

Indulge in our diverse selection of fragrances, allowing you to personalise your candle and create a delightful gift for someone special. And why not make an extra candle for yourself? It's a fantastic opportunity to enjoy the scent in your own space!

Guided by our expert instructor, you'll be taken through the entire candle-making process using premium coconut and soy wax. The workshop begins with an introduction to our exquisite range of fragrances and instructions on how to properly infuse your candles with scents. You'll have the pleasure of selecting your desired scents for each candle, though the challenge lies in narrowing down your choices from our extensive collection of fragrances. Furthermore, you'll learn how to accurately measure the wax and choose the appropriate wick for your container before pouring your candles.
