Now and then Inger runs short candle-making courses for small groups (up to 5 persons) who would like to learn the basics of the craft.
Each course will run from 10 am to 1 pm and will cost £30 per person for the full session (minimum of two, maximum of five). There will be a short coffee break at 11.30 am.
The courses will take place in the candle-making workshop, and may be subject to occasional interruptions from customers!
Participants are guaranteed to enjoy a convivial and informative session, and will come away with some dipped and moulded candles which they themselves have made.
If you would like to book a course for yourself and members of your family or friends, please contact Inger on 01239-820470 to discuss dates and other practical details.
Comment from Trudi:
"The spot you have for your studio/workshop is ideal, a beautiful setting and as an artist I can imagine it being inspirational for you and students alike. You were both very welcoming, relaxed and friendly, and exceptionally patient considering our very 'jerky' candle dipping technique.
"Although there was a lot of repetition on the dipping front, at not one point did we get bored. Watching your candles grow and grow after each dip is quite mesmerising and I could have quite easily done it all day and created some whoppers! It was great to learn the other processes as well, creating bespoke candles from filling up everyday objects and hand rolling the beeswax sheets. These aspects illustrated that it really is a hobby you can have a go at at home without splashing out on any expensive equipment, the outlay purely being the wax and wick.
"It was great to come away with some fruits of our labour, all of which have had positive comments from friends and family."
