In-Person Workshops To Get You Started
LEARN THE ART AND SCIENCE OF CANDLEMAKING
Stamford Lincolnshire, UK
Penne Abruzzo, Italy
WHAT WE'LL DO…
In my workshop I share everything you need to know step-by-step, to make a quality handmade scented candle using natural soy wax, fragrance & wood wicks and you'll leave with the skill to make something you can truly enjoy. Plus it's all in a relaxed, fun and inspiring home environment. At the end you also have the option to purchase a take-home kit if you'd like to get creative right away and make more candles!
Your materials are included, as are detailed notes, so you won’t have to take any! You'll learn core skills of candlemaking, along with knowledge of the best materials in order to make a quality candle, things you will need at home, some candle chemistry, safety, and de-mystifying fragrances like which ones are best to use and mixing YOUR OWN (the REALLY FUN part).
I’ll present examples of my own work which were inspired by Historic England and Abruzzo/The Adriatic coast and we’ll discuss fragrances that move us - this is a creative awareness type of exercise that inspires our creativity! Particularly what we can observe from our own past and environment for inspiration. This correlates with our scent-mixing part of the workshop so we get inspired to create something unique. It’s not about ‘what goes with what,’ it’s about creating something personal.
Note: The workshop is approximately 3-4 hours. Your finished candle cannot be moved as it will still be liquid. However we can organise postage to you for a few euro, or you can stop by at a later date when it’s convenient.
