O que você fará
***OCT, NOV & DEC workshops are Christmas themed*** Welcome and intros. Safety briefing and PPE. Intro to materials used in UK today (overview). Materials tools and equipment - differences. Sourcing and sustainability. Then each main technique in turn demonstrated, coached and guided: 1) container candle - using soy wax, a choice of wicks, dyes and fragrances. Using and affixing a wick. Heat, blend dyes and fragrances - then pour and cure. 2) silicone moulded candle - a choice of silicone moulded shapes, using either soy or beeswax, dyes and fragrances. Cotton wick. Heat blend and pour into a silicone moulded. 3) tapered candle - using long cotton wick and dipping into deep Bain Marie heated wax containers. Using beeswax or paraffin wax. Dip and cool repeatedly until layers build up. Various colours available. 4) rolled candle - using a beeswax sheet, learn to attach and roll a candle by hand; decorative materials also provided. Sometimes we may be able to use excess wax to make wax melts, or additional tapers/rolled candles. This is dependent on time, number of participants and available materials. Candle after care and use given materials used and different wick types. Safety reinforcement. Participants take all of their candles home with them, wrapped in tissue paper and boxes :-)
Hello! We are Kathy & Dave, the founders of 'ChilliWinter Isle of Wight'. We have been making beautiful soy wax candles from our home workshop since 2016. With over 25 years' training experience, our 2.5 -3 hour artisan workshop will introduce you to four different candle-making techniques, which you will be guided through. Choosing from a variety of materials, you'll customise your very own candles to take home. Small groups means plenty interaction and coaching time, enabling everyone to enjoy their experience! As a fast growing enterprise, our website shows off our 40+ fragrance range, the community events we support, the locations of our stockists as well as further info about our workshops. Making candles is creative, fun, interesting and so very, very relaxing... We look forward to meeting you, and sharing our chandlery expertise!
