I did it!! I finally stepped out of my comfort zone and followed my dream to share my experience and knowledge from the candle making world in my first ever candle making class.
I LOVE what I do and what better way to build on what I create on a day to day basis, than to talk about what I have learned, the do's and do not's and how to get the best out of your freshly poured jar of gorgeousness!!! I chat about the products I use and how I only use high quality vegan friendly, paraben free ingredients.
My first ever group was amazing to say the least! They were all so keen and interested and I thrived on their enthusiasm. I do have to say a huge thank you to my wonderful friend Emma, who came along to support me in my first ever class, along with her very lovely mum and took over all of my photography needs.. life saver!!!
Listening to my group chat about the new Winter fragrance range filled me with joy as every single scent was welcomed with lots of oooos and aaaaas and this gave me such a warm fuzzy feeling!! To know that you guys love my fragrance choices as much as I do makes this totally worth it!
I have had some disasters in my time, I won't deny it, lumpy topped candles, air bubbles, wonky wicks, you name it... This is how you learn though and you know what not to repeat and what works amazingly. Despite this, I have got to say, every single candle created at the class last night was perfect!!! Such wonderful smooth tops, air bubble free and they all smelt sooo gorgeous!!! Is it ok that I feel very proud right now!
I do feel I have struck very lucky with my choice of venue! Monica from Maison Bleu is the most supportive host. If you've never been, you really must visit. Her tea room is amazing!!! She even has a hidden bar out the back with jaw dropping interior design.
Relaxed, fun filled, flowing Prosecco and giggles sum up the evening along with the all important beautiful hand poured candle.
I am so excited about my next class already!! 2019 dates are:
7th November 7:00 - 9:00/9:30
12th December 10:00 - 12:00/12:30
2020 dates will be released shortly..
Please feel free to email me if you are interested in one of the above dates or if you would like to chat about hosting your very own private class. I can come along if you can gather together a group of friends.
And on this note I'll leave you with some fab pics (not taken by me) from my very special first ever candle making class.
