The workshop is held in a studio located in the stunning village of Lavenham, a medieval wool town, with stunning chocolate box cottages and independent shops.
This course focuses on the art of soy wax candlemaking, but does include a brief foray into paraffin wax.
It includes an introduction to materials, waxes/wicks/cores and containers. We cover the description of commonly used waxes, how to measure the correct quantities, perfume and their effects, pour temperatures and how to fix surface problems. The course will also explain the recent legislation changes and the CLP information that is required in order to sell your candles.
During the workshop, you will make and take away with you, 1 x 250g glass, 1 x 3 wick candle, wax melts, and 6 x paraffin wax, botanical/Christmas hangings. These are valued at over £65.00
