Candle Making Workshop

Join us and discover the art of candle making in our new self contained annex workshop in Alnwick.

The hands on workshop includes:


  • Introduction to Candle-making and the different types of candle

  • An introduction to fragrance, learning about their top, middle and base notes, fragrance families and how different scents affect your mood culminating in a fun game.

  • While your candles are setting enjoy a slice of cake and drink provided by our in house café. This is the perfect chance to chat with our chandlers and ask any burning (sorry) questions.
