Candle making workshop – 24 April 2022

This was a workshop to remember. What a fun group of creatives, it is such a highlight for us to see everyone networking and connecting over candle making.

New here? We have been hosting sold out workshops since 2017, the SML Candle Making workshop is a hands on workshop in which we will cover the basics of candle making with a fundamental focus on hand poured vegan soy wax scented massage candles. This workshop is based on our personal experience and how we use traditional craftsmanship with pure ingredients to create a top quality product that burns sustainably, smells divine and is also a nourishing massage oil.

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, so much so that we are thinking of branching out and divining our workshop into two. One purely recreational and the other with a focus on small business fundamentals and foundation building… If this is something you would like us to pursue, let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Here are a few photos of our day together of our last small business workshop hosted at SOUTE in Cape Town,
