Soy candle making with Mrs B
August 4, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 2:30 pm£42
Soy candle workshop with Mrs B
Mrs B is a born and bred Island girl, who has happily followed the ‘bungee’ tradition of Island natives – you know – the one where you always keep bouncing back!
After a fulfilling creative career on the “North Island” ( known as the mainland to non- Islanders!), hat included photography, styling, festival and event organisation, she soon settled back into the ways of Island life. Sometime back Mrs B found herself with an extraordinarily expensive secret addiction (don’t tell Mr B) of extremely costly organic candles …. you know the type – the ones that set you back a small fortune but are completely divine! So she set about making her own at a fraction of the cost. Now totally excited and in love with the process she would love to share her knowledge with you.
Come and join her for a jolly old session of aromatherapy candle making. Making handmade gifts is a rewarding and fun skill for all abilities. Learn how to make gorgeous soy wax poured candles … just for your own pleasure or why not sell at local craft fairs?

Why Mrs B uses soy wax in candle making?
Soy wax is a relatively new and innovative candle wax made from 100% soy beans. Soy beans are a renewable and sustainable resource and are completely natural and biodegradable. Soy wax is non toxic and non carcinogenic with no pesticides, herbicides or genetically modified material. An excellent choice for those wishing to burn environmentally friendly candles.
You will make three aromatherapy candles and decorate them – they will all go home with you! The workshop will also cover understanding wicks, health and safety, how to use fragrances correctly for an aromatherapy effect and design techniques. Materials and tools will also be available for purchase.
Workshop fee : £42 per person (over 16 years only)
What is included;
- Tools and materials (feel free to bring along extra decorative elements if you wish)
- no more than six participants for each workshop ensuring plenty of one-to-one
