WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
There are candles and there are soy wax candles. We like the kind of candle that is so smart that really you are rather loath to light it. In fact, there is a whole language based around lighting a candle. Did you know about tunnelling, optimum burn time and the full melt? Here is an opportunity to learn about the humble candle from one of the best - the divine Earl of East based in Hackney.
TELL ME MORE
This is a ninety-minute class taking you through the basics. Smell the essential and botanic fragrance oils, crumble the wax, learn what it takes to perfect a fragrance and how to make your own 6 oz scented Soy wax candle which you can take home, but not on the day. You will need to postpone the lighting gratification as once you have made your candle it is essential to leave it overnight to cure, but it can be collected from Bonds, Hackney during opening hours or Mr Posty can deliver it to your door.
