Sarah was great. Very friendly, patient and knowledgeable. We made a range of candles and I definitely have the bug now. I am officially obsessed with candles now and can't wait to work on making more at home!

Informative and fun. I am interested in selling candles and wanted to learn everything i needed to know. I thought the class did all of this and above, lovely teacher who kept it interesting, we learnt how to make so many different types which was great in the time we had to do so. Also loved that we got a booklet afterwards. great venue with good location

I attended the course on Sunday 29 April 2018 and loved it. Sarah explained everything and her instructions were easy to follow. I have a learning disability and normally need assistance or need to be shown something more than once. Not on this course I got it straight away and didn't even need to mention that I may need additional help. I CANT NOT WAIT to get on further courses with Sarah. Thanks you

This was a fabulous little workshop. We ended up making several different types of candle, including a fragranced one. Sarah is knowledgeable and gives great instruction throughout. Would definitely recommend for beginners to candle making - either as a crafting hobby or as a base for further learning.

My friend and I really enjoyed the candle making course, what a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. It was a wonderful, relaxing few hours. Sarah is very knowledgeable and full of great tips, learning about all the different wax types and fragrances was really interesting. Highly recommended, thank you Sarah!

Sarah is a great teacher, generous with loads of nifty tips and tricks, and very good at straightforward explanations of the more technical aspects. There was a good variety of materials to play with and we came away with a gratifying bag full of our creations. I thoroughly enjoyed this class!

Great instruction and took home some great candles. You can be a complete begginer and learn something new in just 2 hours. Class gives you a chance to be creative too! Recommend it.

Sarah was a great teacher. She took us through a range of techniques, tips and tricks of candle making, and encouraged lots of questions. We made several different types of candles, much more than I expected!

I attended this class with a friend, we had lots of fun and left with some lovely candles. The pillar candle we made burns lovely like a stained glass lantern. The scented candle is being given as a birthday gift. Now I know why scented candles cost so much and I can now make them myself! Sarah the teacher was friendly and shared lots of knowledge. I’ve ordered some supplies to have a go at home, Sarah supplies information on where to buy the things you need. Can’t wait have the candle making bug.

Easy to access venue at Westminster college. Small group of people and just the right amount of time to learn the basics of candle making. I would recommenced this course to anyone who is thinking out making candles for pleasure. The only downside is that there is a follow up class but it is not in London.

I received my place on the course as a gift and am delighted that I went - the workshop was really fun and friendly and I learned lots. Sarah was a really good instructor and everything was very well organised especially given the room was a fairly small space. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to find out what candle-making is about.
