Great class this morning. We made a beautiful soy candle with flowers, glittery crystals and essential oils. I will try again as home but will surely recommend this course!

This was a fun workshop! The teacher was really nice and friendly, and we learned some things about candle making in general (types of wax used, for example), before working on making one ourselves. There were a lot of dried flowers and crystals, ribbons and stickers to choose from for decorating, and lots of essential oils for scenting the candles. Also salts that you could add to your cabdle too.
You get to do four different layers of scents, so you get try out a lot of combos. The candle is a nice size, ai think the teacher mentioned it can burn for 60-70 hours.
It was a great experience, and we got some cute (and nice smelling) candles out of it. I highly recommend it!

Our teacher was so lovely and really took time to explain the importance of the different oils and the soy wax we used. She also took time to show us how to compliment each fragrance and also took some time to look at everyone individually and offer advice. 10/10

Had a really cute time making candles. The teacher was informative and sweet. The venue had lots of other sessions going so I will for sure come back for other classes. Great way to spend time.
And we got given cute little box for our candles too.

Justine Fabre Feb 2023

Great activity! The teacher was really nice and patient, and it was quite intimate as we were not much people, so it makes it easier to interact with others. Love that we could add crystals to our candle!
As a little idea of improvement for next time, it would have been nice to have some background music while doing the activity.

Lucy Batikyan Feb 2023

Great introductory lesson into candle making. Such a nice way to relax and be creative all while experimenting and having fun.

A good time with a friend or partner. The teacher was helpful and it was efficent. The studio was in an amazing location and was nice.
Scents could be more varied though as they tended to be just fruit or floral.

Alma Brillantes Jan 2023

It’s really nice to learn the basic of making candles from an instructor like Laura as she is nice and warm and helpful. ❤️

Natural coconut candle making, booked for myself and my girlfriend. We were the only people in the class. We decorated the candle and poured 4 layers of wax with different scents, good experience

Kevin Gosnell Nov 2022

Easily accessible location. Friendly and welcoming teacher. Answered all questions with no problems. Nothing was too much for her.
Room a little small if alot of people booked on the class.
Enjoyed the class and am looking at booking a different class at the same location in future.

Candle doesn’t smell at all, very expensive for what you get. Teacher was lovely but overpriced session.

Kim Rihal Oct 2022

Lora was knowledgable and clear with her instructions
Venue was beautiful and a creative workshop
The materials were great, although there could have been more crystals; not all the options were there.
This was great value for money as the tutor was very knowledgeable!
I have learnt about candles temperatures and how to decorate the glass container and when to add the essential oils.

Had a fab morning creating candles with my mum and sister. It was a small group, so not overcrowded, and the venue was great. The instructor was friendly and knowledgeable and the class allowed plenty of time so we weren't rushed.

Beth Mills Jul 2022

A lovely relaxing thing to do on a Saturday morning! We really enjoyed the class and are thrilled with the beautiful candles we each have to go home with .

Anees Hussain Jul 2022

I’ve been to two candle making classes and this didn’t really live up to expectations sadly. I love the concept of the flower petals and crystals, but other than that I was disappointed
1. Better equipment is desperately needed - we were using huge saucepans to pour wax into tiny jars, so of course there were a number of spillages, which presents a serious health and safety hazard.
2. The wick holder didn’t have a centralised slot, meaning everyone’s wicks were off centre. I pointed this out to the tutor but she kept silencing me by telling me “not to worry” or “it’ll be fine”. It turned out to be less than fine as no-one had a well positioned wick - all were off centre. I wish she’d addressed my concern properly, rather than being dismissive.
3. This is not a suitable class to attend in 30+ degree heat. No fans or AC. It was stifling.
4. The class was spent in total silence unless the tutor was speaking. Some relaxing background music would not have gone amiss. A more cheerful atmosphere would have made the experience more pleasant, especially as this was a birthday present for my friend.
5. The tutor seemed to lack confidence, which made everyone feel a little uneasy. She didn’t greet us at the door and introduce herself like a professional ordinarily would, so we just followed her in thinking perhaps she was just a resident of the block. In fact, it was the tutor of the pottery class in the adjoining room who welcomed us and gave an intro!

Gillian Toit Jul 2022

Really enjoyable activity. The teacher was lovely and explained everything well. It was evening to follow and do within the timeframe.

Tom Gurman Jun 2022

We took the candle making class as an activity for our anniversary and had a fantastic time. The teacher was very nice and explained the process and significance of the materials very well. It was a lot of fun being able to create something from scratch and actually I found it really calming. Our new candles are almost too good to light!

Gemma Smyth Mar 2022

The teacher was nice but the room was a bit grotty, and the selection of scents was really limited. It was decent for the price. My candle looks nice but gives off no smell really. The section about chakras and crystals was about a minute long and read off a piece of paper.

Renee Francis Mar 2022

The class itself was a good class, the teacher was very polite and informative. The room was very small not alot of room are space. Customers services was really bad I waited at the gates for around 5 minutes before anyone opened it even though a young lady just went in, has I'm bending the corner. My cousin was late 20min and wasn't allowed in even though the class started 10 minutes late. Said she's would wait for us outside, recommended by a staff to join the pottery class while waiting. without explaining she would need to pay. Until after by sending an email saying you wouldn't be able to rebook your candle making class until you pay for pottery. Which I find to be very deceitful. Has full explanation should has made be4 hand.

Tisha Campbell Mar 2022

The teacher was great but the Manager with ginger hair (Jos) was extremely rude and racist the way he spoke to an individual for being 10 minutes late trying to find the venue. He later correspondents via email after giving verbal then blocking the recipient email address.
This is why people get hurt after work just because of their attitude at work (Were all humans), for no reason and then he mention your on camera without anyone being rude.

Camera don't stop anything no one is scared of CCTV, he was just upsetting his self.

False advertisements on the website if your not happy then your money back, is a lie this is against any consumer rights.

Don't be black and late or the Ginger hair manager will raise his voice at you with attitude.
Then we witness a few white ppl who was late, he spoke so nice to them and still except them in the class.

Really good class, teacher was really friendly, would have been nice to learn more about the essential oils and they’re effects but we did learn about different gemstones and they’re chakra meanings

Susanna Zema Jan 2022

Our teacher was lovely and patient!
The venue was cool and relaxing :)
I had a really great time even if without any friend, I felt comfortable and enjoyed the session.
I would just suggest a clearer introductory overview of the making process before starting, so to feel even more ready!

Overall, an excellent experience. The teacher was great & full of humour. The only downside I'd say is that the class was overly crowded for the room.

Patrick Tshibangu Nov 2021

I personally really enjoyed the workshop.
It allows you to learn a little bit more about the secret behind
successful candles.

Our Tutor was very friendly, and full of knowledge.
I had a good time learning about different types of wax, wicks, their purpose and their impact on our planet.

I would recommend it to someone who would like to learn more about the process behind candles making, or even someone who just wants to have fun during a friendly workshop, who's looking to meet amazing people while learning something new.

Teacher was great, and loved the inside venue. It’s a lovely idea to make a candle from scratch, and the process was explained clearly start to finish. You can add floral leaves and candles, glitter and bows to your finished candle to take home.
