Craft Workshop Thursday 22nd July 2021: Introduction to Container Candle Making (beginners)
Come along to learn how to make high quality container candles in a relaxed, friendly group. You will learn to make candles using fragrances and colours and, in this 3 hour workshop, you will be making three candles in a glass container, a tins, and a teacup to take home.
This workshop is for people who would like to make candles for their own use and for gifts. It is not suitable for people looking to set up a candle making business as we do not cover the relevant legislation and regulations legally required to sell candles.
This is a great place to start learning the craft of candle making, safely and to a great standard.
During this 3 hour workshop, we will focus specifically on container candles.
Maximum Workshop: 4 People
Time: arrive for 10am start - finish 1pm
Venue: Craft Workshops, Grassroots Garden Centre (separate studio within the grounds), Stalbridge Road, Henstridge BA8 0SA
You will find out about the different kinds of candles which can be made along with different types of wax for specific types of candles, and how to add fragrances and colours.
We will also cover health and safety aspects of candle making for personal use, and safety labelling for your own use as well as if you are giving a candle as a gift.
We are gradually changing the type of wax which we use from soy to a non-soy vegetable wax. All the ingredients we use are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
We will have time to discuss using repurposed containers for candles such as tin cans and jam jars. Also we can discuss making other kinds of candles such as pillar candles, wax melts, floating candles, striped candles, and much more.
The workshop includes all tuition, supplies and use of equipment for you to make three container candles (including one in a teacup and saucer) using colours and fragrances from a selection available.
Please note that teacups and saucers are from some which I have collected. There is a variety and some may not match exactly but you are free to have a look through the selection which I have and make your own choice.
Please let me know if you have any fragrance or skin allergies when booking.
This class is suitable for adults over 18 years old only. If you are not sure if this workshop is suitable for you, please ask any questions before booking - always happy to help and advise.
Hot and cold drinks are available throughout the session. Please bring your own travel mug or similar if possible.
