Candle making workshop during COVID-19 – 25 July 2020

All our candle making workshop hopes and dreams for 2020 were put on hold, this has been like no other. It has been impossible to plan and project, leaving our physical workshops in the balance. At the end of last year we were working on the online version of our candle making workshop with hopes to reach our international audience, isn’t it wonderful how things plan out… 7 months later, we have been given the time to rest, reflect and dream up new and exciting things and as a result we are launching our online candle making course for EVERYONE!

Before we launch our online course this September, we had some unfinished business to take care of… Our 21 March physical workshop was cancelled due to the announcement of level 5 lock down in South Africa. We have been waiting for the right (and safe) time to get back to hosting workshops and did a trial with this group of lovely people on the 25th of July.

Here are the photos of our morning together, sat 2meters apart, wearing masks, and washing our hands ALOT!

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.)
