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!

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.

I had a great time throughout the duration of the course, Sarah was very experienced and gave us all of the information that we needed to make our own candles. We learnt about all of the different candle wax’s, different styles, scents, moulds and what each of them does. We made a variety of different candles and had a choice of what we could make; everything was explained really clearly and there was always help nearby. Sarah provided lots of information afterwards should we want to continue making them or even start selling. Excellent day.

Never made a candle before. This course was perfect as did not have a clue what to expect. Sarah the Teacher was excellent. She put everyone at ease and explained all the different processes and materials for candle making really well. She gave us all the information we needed to make different types of candles and answered any questions we had no matter how trivial. Very good course will certainly recommend.

I really enjoyed this workshop and I can't wait to make my own candles. Sarah is very knowledgeable and the workshop is very complete and interesting, and each participant gets to take a few different types of candles home.

I really enjoyed the candle making workshop! Sarah was an amazing teacher and also very good at giving all the information not just during the class but afterwards with the follow up so didn’t have to feel like you had to take notes, could just enjoy the class and take it all in. I now feel confident in experimenting with candles myself, but also know that if I come across any problems or questions in my experiments I could still ask Sarah questions and advice. I would highly recommend this workshop!

The workshop was very insightful and covered all the basics for a number of different types of candle making. The instructor was friendly, funny and very knowledgable, and happy to answer any questions. There was absolutely no stinginess about supplies either! You’ll walk away with a bunch of candles and extra tea lights
