Held in the lovely rural village of Temple, just 15 miles south of Edinburgh, this half day candle making workshop will give you the basic skills to create a scented container candle made from 100% natural soy wax.
To begin, you’ll meet your workshop leader who will set you up with all the materials you’ll need. From there, you’ll receive an overview of the different types of wax, wicks and dyes that are used in candle making. Then it’s your chance to get creative with different fragrance options (essential oils v fragrance oils) and choose your own scent from the fragrance library!
The workshop leader will then take you through a step by step process of making the container candle. You’ll be using natural soy wax and will be able to assemble and hand pour your own container candle. You’ll also learn about the safety and science behind candle making, including how to test wicks and how to burn a candle correctly. Once completed, you’ll then move on to decorating your candle container by choosing a design from an extensive paper library.
By the end of the workshop, you’ll be filled with the knowledge and skills behind making your own 100% natural soy wax candle, not to mention have your own candle to take home! This workshop is the perfect opportunity to learn a unique skill and make some unforgettable memories.
