Candle/Soap Class Information

Below is some important information to read prior to your attendance at our Candle/Soap School
  • Our Candle/Soap School is located on our 20-acre property at 220 Cut Hill Road, Kangarilla SA (2.2 km up the road).
  • On Class days, a sign will be placed at the bottom of the road, the Chandelle Galerie flag will be placed at the entrance to our property & the gates will be open.
  • Please drive down the gravel driveway & park on the concrete.  
  • The entrance to the Studio is signposted, go to the rear of the galvanised building (closest to the homestead).  
  • Please arrive at 10.25am for a prompt 10.30am start (OR at least 5 minutes early if attending a Private Class).
  • Group Classes finish at 3.00pm however occasionally we can run a little late. In addition, some participants do like to stay after class to purchase candle or soap making equipment and supplies and/or to ask questions.  
  • Please wear comfortable attire & footwear - do not wear scarves, jewellery, bracelets or clothing which hangs/dangles as these items can get caught up in the melting pot & therefore pose a fire safety risk. 
  • If you are attending a candle making class, please consider wearing layered clothing as the candle studio needs to be kept around 24 degrees Celcius, and with 6 gas burners working it can get a little warm. 
  • Classes are STRICTLY for students. Companions cannot remain on the property. However, we can highly recommend a visit to SA's best wine region - McLaren Vale, which is an 8 to 10-minute drive away.   
  • On Group Class days a gourmet lunch with local wines is included. If you have not already notified us of any special dietary meal requirements, please let us know ASAP.  
  • Liquid refreshments (tea/coffee, herbal teas, soft drinks, cordial and mineral water) are provided free of charge.    
  • All candle/soap making equipment & supplies, including aprons are provided.
  • Comprehensive technical notes are provided so there is no need for note-taking. 

We wish to respectfully remind students of our general terms & conditions. In particular, that It is our policy NOT to refund a booking fee if a student cancels within 72 hours of the booking date. Students acknowledge this as reasonable given the difficulty we can have in back-filling a booking at such short notice.
