Candle Making: Bumper Edit // Saturday 18 May


Time: 1.00 - 3.30pm

Location: The Biscuit Factory Gallery

Hosted by: The Crafthood



Perfect for candle-lovers across the north-east, The Crafthood will guide you through everything you need to know to make your own high-quality, clean & long-lasting soy wax container candles.

You will enjoy guided tuition in all steps of the process, including receiving your own guide to take away. You will get to make two candles during the workshop. The first will be The Crafthood’s best seller from their signature collection in their amber jars. For the second candle, you will get to choose from a specially curated selection of premium fragrance blends and containers.

Everything you need will be provided including a protective apron. You will leave with two bespoke candles and the confidence & knowledge you need to carry on candle-making at home. The candles make beautiful gifts or are a really amazing treat for yourself.

There will be a break mid-way through the workshop.

Please note: The Crafthood will provide protective gloves for handling fragrance oils and the workshop will take place with access to nearby toilets so guests can quickly get access to washing hands, if required. Some fragrance oils contain health warning labels and in the interest of airing on the side of caution, we advise those who are pregnant or have severe allergies to not attend.
