Come and join us for a fun filled day of safe candle making. Making handmade gifts such as candles is a rewarding and fun skill for all abilities. Save yourself a fortune by learning how to make your own soy wax poured candles either for pleasure or why not sell on at local craft fairs.
Once you have discovered the many benefits of soy candles you will never look back. You will be able to produce high quality products that are non-toxic, biodegradable and environmentally friendly. These soy candles are clean burning candles that produce little to no soot. During the day you will use high quality soy wax that is derived from oil refining (like paraffin) but comes from a naturally grown renewable resource, the soya bean. You will have the opportunity to sample a variety of fragrance oils and colours when making your candles.
Learn all about:
Health & Safety
Understanding wicks and waxes
Colour and fragrance correctly
Packaging and decoration tips and techniques
In the lesson you will make 2 candles as well as wax melts and all of your wonderful creations go home with you

What's included in the price?
All tools and materials are included in the course fee, although I would recommend that you wear either an apron to protect your clothes, or wear old clothes that you are not bothered if you splat a little wax on.

We are currently restricting our course to a maximum of 6 people, but if you do have a larger party, please get in touch as an alternative date may be available.
Courses start at 10am and finish around 2pm. These times are for guidance only as, we prefer to go at the speed of the participants in a relaxed non-rushed environment.
Afternoon Tea is supplied by Coopers Tea Room who are able to cater for all diets, please let me know at the time of booking of any special dietary requirements or even if you would like a certain type of sandwich included in your tea.
At the end of the course, a handout is given to all pupils explaining everything covered in the day so there is no need to make endless notes, the only requirement for the day is for you to relax and have fun.
What a wonderful day spent with Tracey.
Everything was explained in full detail. She really knew her stuff.
Her hospitality was really professional and very welcoming.
I came away full of inspiration and I cannot wait to get started making candles for my new business venture.
The melts we made together are burning as I write this review.
Thank you Tracey for an uplifting and memorable experience.

What a fabulous workshop. Tracy was an excellent tutor, very informative and friendly. I came away on such a high I wanted to do my review straight away! Also came away with two lovely candles and lots of melts. Afternoon tea was a treat too. Thank you Tracy and I wish you all the very best with your ventures. Karen
