Making your own candles is a very relaxing and satisfying hobby, and in this class you'll learn to use 100% natural wax, and include natural essential oils to create your own range of eco-friendly, vegan, aromatherapy container candles.
You'll learn about:
- Types of natural wax available
- What equipment to use
- Wick sizing, different wick types and choosing the right wick
- Calculating how much wax to use
- Using essential oils and fragrance oils
- Understanding hot and cold throw and testing fragrance throw
- Temperature control
- Health and safety, and proper labelling
You'll make and take home 6 container candles, and you'll also be given an information booklet which contains all the information you learnt on the class, testing templates, and a sheet of safety labels to use on the candles you produce at home.
Suitable for beginners, you will be guided through every step by Wendy, owner of The Little Craftery, and life-long crafter.
The workshop runs for approximately 2½ hours. Enjoy a chat with like minded people and learn some new skills! All materials and refreshments are included in the price.

" I did Wendy's candle-making course and loved it. We all went away with 7 candles, learnt a load of techniques we can use at home to make some more and had a fun afternoon with some lovely people. I am going back for more of Wendy's classes." - Lynne - Introduction to Candlemaking
