Guests learn the heritage craft of candle making and make a range of hand made, vegan, soy wax candles.
The candle making business is on fire at the moment, as an interest in self-care, home décor and room fragrancing flourishes. Everyone from top fashion houses to independent, artisan boutiques are entering the candle market.
We’ll post out kits in advance of the e-event containing everything needed. Guests will receive a wax melter, wax, wicks, mould, tin, fragrance, colour and tools.
Hosted by our expert chandler in the virtual candle shop, guests will be guided through each step from preparing the mould and container, arranging the wick, melting the wax, adding dyes and fragrances, pouring the melted wax and removing candles from moulds.
Guests will make a fragranced container candle in a tin, a pillar candle in a mould as well as some some tea lights.
For an added team building element we can arrange guests into teams and challenge them to come up with a name and brand for their candles, similar to a task seen on “the Apprentice”. We can put them into break out rooms where they can talk privately with their team mates and then pitch their new candle range to the judges and the rest of the team.
At the end of the activity guests will have a beautiful set of candles to keep or give as gifts. They will also get to keep the equipment so they can continue with their new found candle making skills at home.
