What’s it all about?
The greatest innovation in the candle industry today is the replacement of the “paraffin” based candle with a natural wax alternative. The soy candle you will make in this workshop will burn cleanly and produce no soot or smoke. It will burn cooler and for longer allowing the delicious fragrances to fill your home.
This natural, environmentally friendly wax is biodegradable which means your containers can be washed and reused. An added bonus in this throw-away society.
What will we cover?
In this workshop you will discover why soy wax is used, why this no-fuss method of candle making is so popular and how your candle can fill your home with delicious fragrances even when it isn’t lit.
You will learn about wick selection, safety, fragrance load and the importance of temperatures. At the end of the class, we can have a Q&A to answer all your candle related questions.
Please bring your own tea cup, a small jar or another container to make your candle in. Porous materials like unsealed terracotta and wood are not suitable but anything varnished or glass is great. All other materials will be provided.
