As rain drizzled outside and the cool breeze brushed our mask clad cheeks, we sat (socially distanced) from each-other but still felt the comfort and warmth of community. We shared our knowledge and love for candle making, our signature scents and life experiences. We ate delicious vegan food and reconnected, with each-other, our selves and what we want from the world… What a beautiful day our March 7th workshop was!
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 this year, 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.
