Make Your Own Soy Wax Candles Workshop

2 hrs 30 mins

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.

Age restrictions: 16+
