Scented Candle Making
Morning or afternoon workshops with Jenny Timms

"Jenny's infectious and her patience is commendable." - Sue

Scented Candle Making - try your hand at making your own candles with these half-day classes for beginners.

This workshop introduces you to the fun of candle making with an end product you can enjoy at home, and possibly a new hobby!
The materials and tools needed to create your own scented candles are affordable and safe to use, making this a craft you can certainly continue after the class.
Scented candles make great presents!

You'll be using soy wax (environmentally friendly and cleaner to use than parafin wax), essential oils for scents, coloured wax and cotton candle wicks.
The class runs for 2 1/2 hours approx, either 10-30am to 12-30pm or 2-30pm - to 4-30pm.

On each session you'll make two 6cm candles in tins, four tealights and four 'wax melts', for use in a scent warmer. Choose from a range of natural scents and colours to make your own individual candles.

The class covers all the stages involved in making candles from the raw materials and is suitable for all levels, especially beginners.

The course cost of £40 includes:

  • Soy wax, cotton wicks, scents including essential oils, coloured waxes
  • Candle tins, tealight containers, wicks and sustainers
  • Use of tools, apron and selection of silicone moulds for making wax melts
  • Refreshments during the class
