What you will do
5 hour workshop
Come and make an essential oil vegan candle and a Christmas tree decoration burnt onto wood using a pyrograph. Led by Creative nature HQ and Join at Creative nature HQ’s inspirational riverside studio. Under Stephen’s relaxed, expert tuition, you will choose a festive shaped piece of wood and decorate it yourself using a pyrograph, with the option to add colour or leave it natural. A fun and creative way to make a wonderful eco-friendly Christmas decoration. During the day or evening (depending on the event), Jen from Join will show you how to make an ethical, soy wax candle using organic essential oils for a fragrance and burn-time that is unrivalled. We will be making a large Bay and Rosemary aromatherapy candle, which is perfect for Christmas, plus you will get to take home your luxury candle – which would make the perfect present for someone special (if you can bear to part with it!). With endless supplies of tea and biscuits – it will be a creative, fun collaboration, full of the scent and spirit of Christmas – it’s a brilliant way to get into the festive spirit and decorate your home in sustainable style. Based at Thames-side Studios, London, with plenty of free parking on site. Why not come with friends and make a day or evening of it? We look forward to seeing you. All attendees will receive a 10% Join discount voucher.

About your host, Creative nature HQ
Creative nature HQ is a collective of artists, makers and designers who believe that we are all inherently creative. It is their job as teachers to nurture and reveal these qualities in every one we teach. Creative nature HQ have defined five disciplines that encompass all the skills of our group: to draw, carve, build, weave and cast.
You can access these workshops in different studios around south London. Their main location is Creative Nature HQ , East Greenwich, that specialises in wood carving, weaving and construction on a monumental scale. We love to teach, to give people the confidence to use tools and with that a confidence grows and a world of making opens up before them.
Stephen Stockbridge is the director of Creative nature HQ, from this tranquil making space Stephen shares his passion for making with natural materials. Slowing down, being in the moment and fully engaged with what you are doing is the foundation of everything that happens here.
Come join the club, learn, live and make! Looking forward to meeting you.
Please wear warm comfortable clothing, it can be a bit chilly in the studio. And bring an apron if you have one. Please arrive 15 minutes early so we can start on time after a cuppa. If you're attending a daytime session, please bring a packed lunch or you can visit one of the local cafes, including one overlooking the Thames.
