This is a good introduction to making scented soy container candles. All the components you need will be provided and guided step-by-step tuition from Sam Peddie of Wirral Candle Co. given to help kick-start your candle making journey.
This course could be a perfect gift for your loved one or simply come with a group of friends and learn a new craft in one of Wirral’s newest and most unique craft venues.
The course is set over 2 weeks (Thurs 16th May & Thurs 23rd May both between 6.30p.m-8.30p.m) to allow your candles to set and be finished/packaged in week 2. You will each make and take home 5 x 100g candles each with lids and packaging.
