Make your own soy wax candles workshop

What you'll do

Learn how to create your own candles and make three different styles of scented container candles, made from 100% natural soy wax.

With the help of your host Lindsey, you’ll be taken through the techniques to make each candle style, choosing your own scents from Mount Cottage’s fragrance library. You’ll learn about wick types, how to measure wax and hand pour. You'll also discover how essential and fragrance oils are used in candle making, as well as the different dyes available. If you’d like to continue candle making after your experience Lindsey will also discuss the equipment you’ll need for hand making your own candles.

You’ll leave with an array of unique, handcrafted candles and the confidence to make many more hand poured candles at home.

What people are saying

Lindsay was a wonderful host, extremely organised and professional with the materials and equipment and provided good refreshments. The start of a new hobby for me!

This was a birthday present from my husband and I was able to work out where I was going wrong in my "self taught" candle making disasters. Thank you for a very informative afternoon. I enjoyed it very much.

Petra Jordan, Nov 2021

I have made candles at home before, but had no idea of the theory about it. I learned many things, thank you!
