Scented Candle Making Workshop

Duration: Two Hours


Includes: A two hour workshop where you will learn about candles, how candles work and how to make scented candles. Each person will make two scented candles and have them personalised with your choice of wording on the label.

Have you ever wanted to learn how to make scented candles?

We are opening our doors to invite you to join us in our Scented Candle Making Workshop!

Our Candle Making Workshops occur on occasional days throughout the year in the very same place that candles are made in our studio shop in Birgu! This informal workshop enables you to discover the art of scented candle making, safely and professionally, with all necessary equipment and materials provided for your workshop.

To start, you will learn a little about the history of candles, the different components of a candle and how they work including the wax, wick and fragrance and the importance of accuracy in each step of the way.

In turn you will create your very own scented candle, but not just one, you get to make two very nice scented candles to keep, a silver tin with lid and a nicely packaged glass jar, both with a personalised inscription.

As candles take time to set and cure, your completed scented candles with personalised labels will be ready for collection a few days later. Please bear this in mind if you wish to book one of our workshops and attend whilst on holiday, don't choose a date that is the day before you fly home!
