Recreational Candle making workshop – 25 September 2021

Two in studio workshops in the bag! It is such a pleasure to host workshops from our home studio, in the beautiful seaside town of Hermanus, candle making is a fun addition to any holiday. Perfect for up to 4 people, this intimate setting allows for maximum attention and creativity. At R1300 per person, you take home your very own signature scented, hand blended and poured candle, this workshop is 2 hours long and includes light snacks and refreshments. Make sure to book now for the festive season. Dates are limited. Pop us a mail.

This recreational workshop is new to our candle making workshop portfolio, 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 which launched mid 2020, it was never designed to replace the physical workshops, (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.

All the #SMLcandlemaking workshops cover the basics of candle making with a fundamental focus on hand poured vegan soy wax scented massage candles. Each with their own specific focus. Get in touch if you would like to know which workshop would be the best fit for you…

Okay, back to last weeks workshop. Covid has stirred up so much for many people, but one thing I know for sure is that we are all craving connection, we have this longing to connect with each-other and the world around us. Our recreational candle making workshop is the perfect activity based workshop to take your mind off things and connecting with friends less risk involved. I love that this beautiful couple booked our workshop as part of an activity full weekend along the coast, they were competitive, sweet and so intrigued about what we had to share… They loved the workshop so much they took home a candle making kit each to continue their candle making journey at home.

Our recreational candle making workshop (hosted in Hermanus) covers the following:
– An introduction to candle making.
– Candle making equipment and care thereof.
– Blending essential oils.
– Step by step how to make a candle.

By joining any of our 3 workshops, you automatically have exclusive access to our Candle Makers Hangout facebook community where we share tips, resources and feedback… Being #SMLcandlemaking alumni has its perks as we hope to bring you discount codes at suppliers, free samples of newly launched SML products and more…
