Candle making workshop – 22 August 2021

Same workshop, beautiful new people. Meeting new candle enthusiasts each month inspires us so much, we leave the workshop filled with enthusiasm and excitement for growing this community.

Over the years our workshop has gained the attention of small business dreamers, those wanting to start their own businesses in the candle industry and alike, we have taken this feedback on board and have tailored the workshop experience to suit our guests.

We now offer 3 versions of our candle making workshop… 1. Small Business Candle Making (This is our OG candle making workshop which is hosted in Cape Town.) 2. Recreational Candle Making (This is an adapted version of our OG workshop, and is hosted in Hermanus.) 3. Our Online Candle Making Course (Supporting our international audience and readers who are longing to learn from the comfort of your own home.) *We recommend that you purchase our candle making kit to ensure you have all the equipment you need at home to get started…
