REVIEWS

 

Great class and super teacher. I made two candles both of which turned out perfectly and burned with no wastage. Can’t wait to attend the Advanced Class next. Worth every penny. P.S. The box and bag come from one of Jo’s professionally made candles, the packaging was so cool I had to include it with my own goodies

 

 

My sister and I were given a voucher for Jo Macfarlane’s candle making course. It was really great. Jo is an extremely nice person and the course was superb. Not only did we take home two lovely candles but also had Prosecco and great scones as well. I thoroughly recommend this course and will make more candles sometime.

 

We had such a fun time making our candles with the lovely Jo, and learnt so much, going to become a candle maker now

 

I recently spent the afternoon with Jo on her candle making workshop, I took my mum along for her birthday. Jo is just lovely, so friendly and welcoming. Candle towers is the coziest little workshop. I loved learning the correct techniques and made 2 candles that smell absolutely divine! Cannot recommend Jo’s candle making workshop enough, I’ve got the bug now and have made a few at home with the knowledge Jo has taught me 🙂 we can’t wait til we attend the advanced workshop in the new year! The lovely treats Jo gave us at the end while our candles were curing were the perfect finishing touches!I won’t give away her secret..! Thanks so much Jo! X

 

 

I have previously attended one of Jo’s fabulous Candle Making Workshops which was such a friendly, personal, educating and lovely morning (with added home-baking which was delightful!) Fast forward to my own candle making journey and I truly appreciate how knowledgeable Jo really is in all aspects of the craft. A fab morning and would highly recommend!
