This is the only candle making workshop on the East of Scotland
I am delighted to be able to share a couple of hours running candle making workshops for each person in a class of four to learn how to make natural Eco soy candles using the finest ingredients.
You will learn basic candle making skills so that you can fill all those empty vessels you have at home or that special unique hand made birthday present. I give away all my candle making tips (well almost all of them). I do have a couple of secrets that make my candles unique that i just can't give away. Read what attendees say
Candle making safety, scenting, wicks, containers, lighting tips will all be shared in this comprehensive workshop.
You will take away two beautiful scented candles (and yes they will be stunning) of two different sizes and enjoy tea or Prosecco and freshly baked scones while the candles are setting and you revel in your new found candle making skill. Prefer to buy a candle as a gift? Shop Candles
I look forward to welcoming you to 'Candle Towers' to spend a couple of hours of pure 'you time'. Can't manage the time to come to a workshop? order a Candle making kit
Each workshop which runs I donate 10% of the cost to Sreepur Village in rural Bangladesh at the same time - Gifts that Give

"I had the pleaseure of attending one of Jo's candle making workshops in May. What a fab afternoon we all had. The location in Anstruther is great and sets the scene for a session of creativity and relaxation. From meeting the other lovely ladies to choosing our scents. Measuring, melting and pouring at the right temperature, not forgetting to keep the wick straight. It was altogether a lovely way to spend a few hours. The glass of prosecco & home made scones were a great finish. When i light one of the candles, it's a lovely fragrant reminder of a lovely experience." L Mercer
"A lovely way to spend a morning making candles. Jo explained everything well and was happy to answer all our questions. To finish off the morning she had made some lovely scones with tea and coffee. A very inspiring workshop which I would thoroughly recommend."
