Gift Certificates - CANDLE MAKING

Our Gift Certificates are the perfect gift for loved ones who love getting creative, are difficult to buy for, who have "everything", or for those last minute panic buys!

If you’re after a present with a difference, look no further than a Chandelle Galerie Gift Certificate. 

BASIC CANDLE MAKING CLASS: 

For those who love SOY candles, then this Candle Making Class is a must - NO experience needed to participate!  More than a simple craft class, this workshop covers theory and practical candle making and problem-solving.  Learn how to select the right wax, wick, colour and fragrance for your candle projects. We share formula and techniques associated with using an all-natural soy wax. During our workshop you will prepare your glassware; calculate, measure, melt, mix and pour your own candle products. 

ADVANCED CANDLE MAKING CLASS: 

For experienced crafters wanting to take their skills to the next level. This workshop starts with a short problem-solving revision session on the learning outcomes detailed within the Basic Container Workshop.  Mel will then explain techniques used for multi-wicking of containers and multi-layering of candles, using colour separation to create interesting designs. The second half of the workshop covers the creation of unique candle scents, which will leave your family, friends, and clients in awe!  Mel will explain the Fragrance Wheel, designed to simplify fragrance classification and naming, as well as show you the relationship between the 5 fragrance families (Floral, Oriental, Woody, Fresh & Fougère, the latter consisting of newer, bright and clean smelling citrus and oceanic fragrances). You will then create and make your own 30ml vial of scent to take home! The hardest decision is choosing a name for your unique scent!
