Please note: there will be no more courses! Inger is retiring, and all the candle-making equipment and materials used on her courses have been disposed of.
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.
Please note that in 2020 there will be no courses during June and July.

Comments from happy participants:
"My girlfriend and I were looking for a special weekend away where we could completely detach from our busy day-to-day lives. Inger's candle making workshop truly epitomised what we were looking for. Inger, you are a lovely woman -- both welcoming and informative. It is safe to say that we won't forget this session and will look back on it with fondness. We would recommend this course to anyone as it was great value for money and Inger is a very patient and encouraging teacher!"
"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."
