What you'll do

You will spend 4 to 5 hours making your very own hand poured candles and you will learn to work with rapeseed wax, soya wax, beeswax and paraffin gel wax. You will learn about the different types of waxes that are available and what they have to offer. You will be adding essential oils as well as candle perfumes and this means you can create your very own aromatic delights. You can also experiment with dyes thereby adding colour to your creations. Free complimentary lunch and light refreshments (dietary requirements considered). You will also benefit from visiting one of the most delightful counties in Wales United Kingdom. The workshop is located within the county of Pembrokeshire in a very beautiful, rural, tranquil, quiet and unspoilt location with the delightful Pembrokeshire coastal path only a stones throw away. As well as having a memorable and enjoyable day, you will leave with at least 8 to 10 candles you yourself have made and they will all be different in style and will include pillar, container and rolled candles.

With 12 years experience as a candle maker, I feel privileged to be able to share my knowledge and expertise with others so that they too can learn the art of candle making and gain a new skill which can be used for pleasure or business. Discovering the joy of working with natural ingredients such as rapeseed and soya wax to make your own candles is both empowering and rewarding. Using essential oils and candle dyes inspires one to be creative too. A truly relaxing experience. It gives me great personal satisfaction to share my knowledge with you.
