We are delighted that candle maker Kerry from Can to Candle has chosen The Arienas Collective to run her popular soy candle making workshops in Edinburgh.
On this 2.5 hour workshop, Kerry will provide an overview of the different types of wax, and fragrance options. You will choose a scent from the Can to Candle fragrance library, and be shown the step-by-step process of making a container candle. The equipment you need for candle making will also be covered, so you will know what is required should you wish to continue making candles at home.
You will assemble and hand pour your own container candle ready to take home, and discuss how to burn a candle correctly. As part of the workshop, you will also make your own 10g bespoke fragrance blend to take away.
By the end of the workshop you will know how to make a soy wax container candle. There will also be time to ask questions.
Price: £45 per person including all materials and refreshments.
Please note that The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a first-floor space and unfortunately we do not have lift access. Please inform us of any skin or food allergies when booking.
Introduction to candle making: 2020 dates coming soon
The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a supportive and welcoming home environment in the Edinburgh New Town. Spaces are limited to allow our artists and designer-makers to offer hands-on help and support. All equipment is provided and all the materials you will need (unless stated otherwise). Just turn up, leave any day-to-day worries behind, and immerse yourself in creating something unique.
Refreshment breaks are an important part of The Arienas Collective experiences. They are a time to socialise, make new friends and chat to the artists and designer-makers. We are fortunate to have a fantastic range of independent shops and producers nearby and are proud to feature locally sourced food and drinks.
The price includes all materials and refreshments, and of course you get to take home all the unique products you have created.
All our experiences are also available to book as a private group for up to 8 people. If you would like to book an experience for a larger number please email us.
