Established in October 2019, Fire Nest is run by partners Will and Phoebe in the heart of Bedfordshire in the United Kingdom. We host a variety of Creative Workshops including Candle Making, Pottery, Bath Bomb Making and more.

Both Phoebe and Will started making candles as a hobby alongside their full time jobs, however the passion quickly turned into an ever-growing empire. In their first year of business, they both went full time with the business, reached over 10k followers on Instagram, featured in Vogue magazine, shipped over 5, 000 orders, hosted hundreds of workshops and rented their own shop unit.

After hard work and dedication Fire Nest have products that are safer to burn and perform correctly. We always use sustainable ingredients which are free from phthalates, paraffin, palm, beeswax and synthetic adhesives. Better for your home, health and the environment.

I felt it wasn’t a very personal experience, wasn’t a huge amount of fragrances, and was kind of left to just smell the oils no information was given for top middle and bottom notes, we had to take our time smelling the fragrances or we would of been in and out in 10 min. We’ve had better perfume experiences. It was for my 2 daughter they were happy with there bottles, but the whole experience definitely isn’t worth the money it’s something you could of done at home I have it a 3 star as the bottle size was decent

Teacher's response

Thank you Lisa, for sharing your feedback about our perfume-making experience. We appreciate your honesty and will definitely take your comments into consideration. We had over 15 different fragrances for you to choose during the session to create your own personalised mixture, with different notes that work well together. We apologise that you felt the session lacked a personal touch and detailed information on fragrances, we did feel during the session that you all enjoyed your time at the Workshop so we were not expecting this review. We are glad to hear that your daughters were happy with their perfume bottles. Thank you for your feedback and for choosing our workshop.

Birthday perfumery course for 3 generations. It was a lovely way to spend a Sunday morning. So nice to find something that all ages can do together.
Will and Phoebe are lovely creating a nice relaxed atmosphere.
Thankyou, I’m sure we will coming back for another course.

Teacher's response

Thank you for choosing us!

We had a great time at our clay building session. Will and Phoebe were very welcoming and friendly. It was our first time working with clay and Will explained very clearly the techniques that we could use and gave us lots of tips. We both felt that we had a lot of choice as to what we could make and the glazes that we could select to finish our creations.
We both felt very pleased with what we produced and have already recommended the session to some friends. A thoroughly enjoyable session -thank you Will and Phoebe.

Last weekend, my wife and I had the pleasure of attending a candle-making workshop by Will and Phoebe. They were super helpful, explaining every step of the process.

Will and Phoebe set everything up, so we just had to do the fun bit - make candles!

We crafted two beautiful scented candles now proudly displayed in our home. The whole experience was worth every penny. We had a fantastic time. It was not just a learning experience but a therapeutic one as well. There’s a certain charm in creating something with your own hands.

Teacher's response

Thank you Vivek, for sharing your wonderful review about our Candle Making Workshop. Crafting something with your own hands can indeed be therapeutic. We're delighted to hear you found the whole experience worth every penny. We wish you both the best on your Candle Making journey!

My friends and I couldn’t stop expressing how much they loved the experience. The teachers were great, very informative and just easy to chat with. The choices of scents and decorations for the candles were endless and amazing, all natural with soy wax, just an amazing experience. So worth the money for two quality candles ♥️♥️
