  • If you are a group of at least 4 and want a private class, please just message and I can arrange a private workshop for your group. This has been popular with businesses, hen parties, birthday parties or just amongst friends*

Sophie is an experienced candle maker who owns a soy wax, essential oil candle range called Somewhere of London. Her candle range is inspired by places she has travelled to over the years.

Sophie uses soy wax and the finest essential oils in her candles for a clean, aromatherapy-grade burn. Candles are made in a fashionable and sustainable amber glass jar, with a kitsch screw top aluminium lid.

During the one hour workshop, you will discuss the transportative power of scent and identify which types of scents we associate with certain places. You will make your own natural essential oil, soy wax candle worth £30! A beautiful candle making kit will be posted out to you before your class. Your candle will burn for 35-40 hours. All materials are vegan and cruelty free.

If you can't make the class time, you will be sent the class recording!

We will discuss scent and it's links with memory and nostalgia, touching upon our personal experiences. You will learn about different Essential Oils and Soy Wax and why we use these beautiful natural ingredients. You will then make the candle as I give guidance. I can answer questions throughout and the candle making kit also comes with a candle making guide which includes a candle making glossary, candle making quiz, candle care guide and step-by-step instructions.

You have a choice between two different summery blends. Both blends are fresh and summery. Just let Sophie know in the booking notes which you prefer!

Lemongrass, Bergamot and May Chang is more oriental and slightly citrusy.

Eucalyptus, Lavender and Cedarwood is slightly minty, with heady aromas of Cedarwood and the warmth of Lavender.

Sophie was really friendly and helpful during the workshop. She explained everything clearly and encouraged asking questions. I produced a lovely scented candle and now have the experience and tips to make them independently. Thanks Sophie for a fun workshop.

This class was perfect for me! The kit was well packaged and contained everything I needed. Sophie was very generous with her knowledge and answered my endless questions! I had a fun hour in Sophie's company, made a beautiful candle and learned everything I wanted to know so I am delighted, thank you.

I had a great time doing this online natural candle making class with Somewhere of London. Sophie sends out the kits with everything you need and explains about the different notes of scents and patiently guides you through the whole process. It's amazing value for money and she's a great teacher. Thoroughly recommended to anyone wanting to know about the candle-making process as well as just wanting to add a new creative string to the bow. Thanks so much Sophie! Loved every minute and can't wait to start burning my new candle!

Sophie was a wonderfully friendly, informative and welcoming teacher - clearly explaining the process of candle making, the benefits of using essential oils and the structure of the workshop was great! We had a wide range of fragrances to choose from, so that we could create our unique candle scent to our taste. The prosecco, soft drinks and fresh cakes were a bonus too! Would highly recommend and really enjoyed the class - thanks Sophie!
