Candle making workshops

Do you want to learn how to make candles? Maybe spend some time with family or friends while being creative? Make a handmade gift? 

Get involved in a candle making workshop hosted by The Candle Bothy and spend a couple of hours learning how to make natural soy wax container candles. 

The workshops will give you the basic skills to create scented container candles and you will learn about wax, scents, wicks and containers together with safety and lighting tips.

You will be making two beautiful candles, with a number of scents to choose from.

Why not treat yourself to a unique candle for your home or make your very own handmade present!

The workshops take place in different creative spaces in central locations. New dates will be added regularly.

Or why not get together with a few friends or your family and book a private candle making workshop? Ideal as a birthday surprise, a hen do activity or to celebrate a colleague’s retirement. We can provide a venue or come to a place of your choice – your home, a holiday cottage or a work place.

Please contact us if you are interested in booking a private candle making workshop. You can email us at
