I had the most amazing time learning how to make candles! Paula was lovely and very thorough in her teaching. It was informative and fun! Met a lot of lovely people too and enjoyed a great afternoon tea. Would recommend for anyone who wants to start a candle making business, or just want to have some fun!

It was such a magical experience to create my very first candles! Everyone in the class was so excited and buzzing, and that created even a better atmosphere! The course was very informative and the material well-prepared for all requirements. Paula and her lovely lady-helper were so friendly and well-organised. The catering was organised to suit all food requirements with a great sandwich selection and drinks, to home-made scones! Truly scrumptious! I had really wonderful experience! Thanks ladies!

Brilliant course! I also did the soap making course in November last year and loved that too. Highly recommend Paula, she is a brilliant and enthusiastic teacher and so knowledgeable! Can't rate her highly enough.
Kelly Gill - Jan 16, 2022
The class was so informative and Paula is a fabulous teacher and really knows her stuff after 20 years in the business. She also provided a lot of information on moving firearms to start a small business and offers a 1 to 1 more in-depth personal business course. We came away with 2 hand made candles. Refreshments were available through the day and a beautiful afternoon tea was also provided. Can’t recommend this course enough.
