Candle making workshop – 30 May 2021

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.

The #SMLcandlemaking workshop covers the basics of candle making with a fundamental focus on hand poured vegan soy wax scented massage candles. 

Our physical workshops cover the following:
– An introduction to candle making.
– Different types of candles.
– Methods of candle making.
– The benefits of soy wax.
– Blending essential oils.
– Candle making equipment and care thereof.
– Stockists details.
– How to create a personal brand with a focus on Instagram. (This includes photo editing tools, our favourite apps and tips on how to maximise your engagement.)

Our online candle making course launched mid 2020, it was never designed to replace the physical workshop, (even though it was perfect timing with us being confined to our homes), but rather to support our international audience, so if you are reading this and longing to learn from the comfort of your own home – this is for you. Read more about our online course here, I would recommend that you purchase our candle making kit to ensure you have all the equipment you need at home to get started… Shop here.
