Well, here’s a list of what we’ll be sending you::
1 x bag of 300g of soy wax [enough to make two candles]
1 x 170ml amber jar vessel with attached wick and lid
2 x 10ml of botanical fragrance oils
1 x extra wick for another use
1 x whisk
1 x jug
1 x personalised label & safety label
1 x peg
Please note that we’re sending you enough wax and a spare wick to make a second candle with. You can either prepare this for the day of your workshop OR keep it all back for a day later. If you want, you can also get some of your favourite essential oils out and add to the blend too.
We will ask you to prepare a few items from your kitchen. The full list is in the product description and will be in the confirmation email. The main thing to check is that you have a working hob with a bain marie OR pan and heat proof bowl or jug to melt your wax with.
We are located in London, UK therefore our classes are scheduled for at (GMT+0).
However, if you can join us around the world at that time we would love to host you. Please be aware, you will need to pay international shipping rates for your candle making kit.
It sure is! The cost of the workshop is inclusive of all materials, equipment & live Zoom session with one of our tutors.
Excellent! We can't wait to meet you and your friends. Just drop us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org, we’d be more than happy to arrange a class with you and your friends
You will choose your label name, with up to 16 characters to play with, and then we will print your custom label and send it along with your kit.
Just let us know with a day’s notice and we’ll have a chat about rearranging your online session.
Once your candle making kit has arrived, check it to see if everything is intact. If anything has arrived damaged, please contact us with the relevant photographic evidence and we will send you what you need on a next day delivery service to ensure delivery in time.
We will be sending your kits at least 7 working days prior to your workshop on an express delivery so don’t worry about your kit not arriving in time. If however there are any issues with delivery please contact us via email@example.com with any urgent enquiries.
We will send you a selection of botanical fragrance oils, so you shouldn’t need them. However, if you have them and want to use them, have them ready for our session. Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your chosen oils.
One of our signature amber vessels will arrive in your candle kit. We will be sending you 300g of soy wax, which means you’ll have an additional approx. 130g to make an additional candle with. So have an extra vessel ready.
Your extra vessel must be heat proof. We suggest jam jars, mugs or tea cups, even old candle vessels. Just make sure your vessel is clean and has no cracks.
While not ideal, there is an option for you to melt your wax in a microwave.
Feel free to have a refreshment or a snack during the class, just make sure your hands are free when needed.

We will send you a reminder email the day prior to the class time to remind you. Unfortunately, we cannot accept late comers after 10 minutes of the class start time due to interruption so please prepare your space and internet connection beforehand.
We will hopefully resume connection. However, we will also be sending a follow up email so all the steps will be reiterated there. If the connection is lost completely and you are unable to connect to the workshop we will discuss the possible options after the class over email.
Simple, all you’ll need is hot (not boiling) water, washing up liquid and preferably washing up gloves to protect your hands from the hot water. It’s really important to ensure as little wax goes down your drain as possible, which is where the washing up gloves come in hand to help scoop out the excess wax. In our studio we fill the sink up with hot water, with the plug in, to create a bath for our empty jugs to sit in, this will heat up the excess wax and within a few minutes you’ll be able to pour or scoop that excess wax into the bin. Then just use lots of soap with hot water and a heavy duty or strong sponge to scrub your equipment clean. Our soy wax is a vegetable based wax and the oils we use do not contain any plastic so don’t worry about any negative effects of disposing the small amount of excess wax.
Before trimming your wick, make sure to check that the wax has solidified. This should be six hours after you’ve poured the candle. To start, just remove your wick, pinch the wick and with a sharp pair of scissors simply trim the majority of the wick, leaving about 5mm worth of wick to light.
