Candle & Photography Course

Candle & Photography Course

We are delighted to bring to you an exclusive workshop like no other, set in the stunning Perthshire countryside, combining candle making with award winning candle maker Jo Macfarlane of Jo Macfarlane candles and a beginners digital photography course with Gill Murray of Violet Studios.

This exclusive workshop collaboration will be held at the inspirational new Violet Studios founded in 2018 by Gill Murray, food and drink photographer and stylist. Violet Studios is located on the outskirts of Bridge of Earn with stunning views over the Ochil Hills.

On arrival to the studio, we will welcome you with coffee, tea & pastries before spending the morning creating luxury candles. Learn about why getting the correct size of wick for your candle is the most important aspect of candle making, different waxes on the market and fragrance oils. Followed up with an ebook that covers everything from the day.

You will make two fabulous container candles in the luxury scents of your choice.  All the skills you learn in the workshop will give you the ability and confidence to make candles in your own kitchen.

We will then stop for lunch and refreshments before continuing for a 2-hour crash course on how to get your camera out of auto and take beautiful photographs. You will learn all about aperture, shutter speed, ISO and depth of field, and allow some practical time for you to master your camera and create fabulous photographs with new skills that will last a lifetime. You will leave feeling more confident controlling your camera and will have improved your photographic knowledge, skills and techniques.

Have fun learning new skills with other like-minded makers in this truly unique experience.
