What you'll do

This four-hour workshop is a fantastic introduction to the creative craft of detailed soy wax candle design.

In the workshop, which takes place at your host Kristal’s home, she will use her expertise in creative candle design to help you create beautiful candles that could easily be mistaken for tasty cakes and desserts!

You’ll start the workshop by designing your candle and selecting the scents, colour and moulds you’d like to use. Then you start melting! All equipment and supplies are provided for you and you’ll discover how to use these to melt, whip and blend the wax to create your soy pillar cake candle. You’ll spend time decorating and throughout the day will pick up pro tips and techniques for perfectly executed candles. You’ll also make some adorable coloured macaron tea lights.

Your candles will be ready for you to take home on the day, wrapped in pretty Fatelier packaging. These candles would make the perfect gift but you might just love them too much to part with them!
