We’re sorry, this experience is not able to go ahead right now.
Due to the current lockdown measures, this experience is unable to take place between Thursday 4 November and Tuesday 2 December.
Every booking - regardless of when this takes place, will play a part in helping our local businesses to survive this challenging time and help them bounce back when we are able to visit them in person again.
Book something to look forward to or gift to someone special for when lockdown is over, or to celebrate a brand new year!
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.
There will be space for two metres social distancing and all workspaces will be fully sanitised.
