Introduction to Candlemaking
£30 - 2 hours
How many people are you booking for?
This workshop covers the basics of candlemaking across a variety of different candle types, and takes you through different styles, wicks and waxes to use. You’ll make and take home at least 8 candles, including moulded pillar candles in different designs, tealights, floating candles, votives and rolled beeswax candles. You can choose your own colours and fragrance. Enjoy a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, tea and biscuits, and get stuck into an addictive new hobby!
Suitable for complete beginners, you will be guided through every step by Wendy, owner of The Little Craftery, and life-long crafter.
The workshop runs for approximately 2-2½ hours. Enjoy a chat with like minded people and learn some new skills! All materials and refreshments are included in the price.
Who is the class for?
Anyone over the age of 16 is welcome! Suitable for complete beginners or those with more experience, it's a nice relaxed and friendly class.
Wendy will take you through the tools and materials you will need and the basic techniques you will learn. You’ll be able to choose the colours you would like to use for your final candles, and Wendy will show you every step of the way to creating candles to die for!
The price is £30, and includes everything you need: all materials and use of any necessary tools, full instruction from Wendy, and tea and biscuits. You will get to take home the candles you've made.
What are the design options?
When you arrive at your class, you will be given the choice of a few different dyes to use, and several fragrance oils to choose from. The candle shapes and sizes will remain the same, but the variation in colours you choose can make a difference to the finished look. Wendy will show you all the techniques you need, to ensure that you make candles to be proud of!
How long will the class last?
The class will last approximately 2 to 2½ hours. It’s best to allow a little extra time as classes sometimes over-run depending on group sizes. Ambient temperature can also make a difference to how long candles take to set, so a class on a hot day could take longer.
Where is the class held?
Classes are held in The Little Craftery in Field Row, Worthing, which is designed to be a functional, comfortable workspace for up to 6 participants. The shop will be closed to the public during your class, so you don’t need to worry about interruptions. If you have any special access requirements, please contact Wendy at The Little Craftery before you book to discuss, and to find out if access is available for you.
Do we need to book?
Yes, please do book in advance, as there are a limited number of places on each class (a maximum of 6 people per workshop), and we wouldn’t want you to be disappointed! We require full payment in advance in order to secure your booking. Online payments will be taken securely by either Square or Paypal (don’t worry, you don’t have to have a Paypal account!). If you’d rather not book online, you can book in person at The Little Craftery.
Do I need to bring anything?
No, all your materials and refreshments are supplied. Spillages do happen, so it's recommended that you dress for mess, though aprons will be supplied.
Can I cancel or reschedule my booking?
If you are unable to attend your class, please let us know as soon as possible. Cancellations more than 24 hours in advance will receive a full refund. Cancellations less than 24 hours in advance or failure to show up for your class will not be eligible for a refund.
We may occasionally need to cancel a class. If this is the case, we will attempt to contact you in advance as soon as possible to either reschedule your date to another class or offer a full refund, as you prefer.
