What you'll do

This is a hands on experience where all the ingredients for a candle are laid out and explained in order of how a candle is made up. I teach my students how to prepare all the ingredients for the making of candles and then with careful tuition we make the candle together. Once all candles are made we break for a snack and a lovely cup of tea and then get back to the work of painting and decorating the Candles. Let your creativity go wild and take home your own individual hand made Candle.

My studio is on the Crossroads and alway open to new people looking for a fun learning experience they get to take home with them.
