Join McKinley & Paget for a hands-on masterclass making clean-burning, ethically made scented candles.
After a short introduction to candle making and McKinley & Paget’s work, you’ll be ready to get started on your own scented candles using a selection of sustainably-sourced plant-based ingredients. Armed with the essential oils provided, you’ll begin by creating unique fragrances, before learning how to combine these with a special coconut wax blend to produce two of your own uniquely scented, 30-hour, candles.
McKinley & Paget was founded in 2016 by old friends Daniel McKinley and Jake Paget. Frustrated by the unsustainable practices and poor quality of home fragrance products on the market, they set out to create a natural and sustainable alternative. Championing plant-based ingredients they only use essential oils, plant waxes, and cotton-linen wicks. Their minimal packaging is made from British Steel and they hand-pour every candle in their South London studio.
Since starting they have worked with such partners as the BFI, Virgin and ITV, as well as receiving press from World of Interiors, Tatler, GQ and Wallpaper*.
