– A pen and notepad.
– An apron to protect your clothes.
WHAT TO WEAR
Please wear casual clothes and flat closed in shoes for safety and comfort. (No high heels please). Keep in mind making candles can be a little messy.
WHAT DO YOU GET TO TAKE HOME?
You will take home…
1. a spectacular intentional candle bowl
2. a classic glass votive
3. a gold travel tin candle
4. some tealight candles
5. and melts all made by you.
The value of these products is over $200. Approximately 1kg of wax, wicks, wick stickers, caution stickers, fragrance, an instructional workbook (via email) and more are all included.
We are very careful about the ingredients we use (eg. no Rosemary essential oil) but if you are under 3 months pregnant we recommend to stay at home, put your feet up and play it safe. Essential oils will be used at this workshop.
If time allows we will do a little candle decorating with flowers and crystals. We do a special workshop just on this subject if you are interested. The reason for this is that the time we have is limited and the candles you make may not be ready for decorating. We also want to ensure you can safely take your candles home at the end of the workshop.
