The Candle Making Workshop - all you need to know

Experience the joy of hand-dipping candles in a beautiful environment. 

Strands of pure cotton wick are immersed into a deep lake of warm wax. Gradually, with every dip, their colour begins to glow. Layer by layer you watch them grow until the most stunning candles have been created by your own hands. Their flame will be a bright, recreating moments of happiness and peace.

Good to know:

Safety first:

There are hot boilers and hot wax involved in candle making. Please take care.  

We love children and they are most welcome, provided they are always supervised and together with an adult. Candle making is not suitable for small children. Please come to make your candles when you have both hands and mind free.


The minimum you will make is 6 candles (per one colour) and you can make as many as you like.  

Bring patience and time:

Sometimes the candles grow fast for our customers and at other times it can take longer than usual. At the end the candles need time to cool down before you are able to take them away. 

Please note that it takes at least 2 - 3 hours to make your candles, depending on quantity and size.


We also offer refreshments such as coffee, tea, soft drinks, wine and beer.
You can also pre-book cheese/ ham toasties or afternoon tea (Scones, Jam and Cream)
