Scented Soy Candle Making Class

Learn how to make two candles in this creative Manchester workshop.



1.5 hours Class size 1 to 8 (public classes), 5 to 10 label £50

Discover the beauty of handmade and add some soothing scents to your home with the candles you create in this craft workshop.

Guillaume, your talented teacher and owner of Ma Lumière, will take you on a journey through the world of candle making as you explore different tools and ingredients. You will learn all about the main types of wax used in the candle making industry and how to blend fragrance notes together.

From an array of twenty different fragrance oils, you will select your favourite two scents to mix into your soy wax before pouring them and finishing up your two DIY candles. As you let your imagination blossom, there will be prosecco, soft drinks and chocolate to fuel your creative spirit.

Your handcrafted candles will need to cure overnight before you can take them home. Once they are ready, your teacher will mail them out to you, and you can enjoy their soft light in your own home. Or give them as a unique gift to a loved one.

If you've been looking for fun things to do in Manchester, this candle making class is an ideal way to inspire your mind and relax with some fellow crafters in your area.

Guillaume was an excellent host and teacher at his Ma Lumiere Candle Making workshop. Lots of fragrances to chose from to make your own candles and look forward to receiving them. A great activity to do with a friend/partner and to give as a gift.
