Artisan Candle Making Class
Food, alcoholic drinks and your own 21cm candle.
Our farm is about everything 'botanical', from crafting teas, infusing coffees and distilling gin. But candle making is particularly special to me because I have done it in my family for many generations. It is something that can be shared with others and is something that stays with you forever. I have made it my passion to teach others the side of candle making that few teach. I've spent many years learning the secrets of making incredibly unique candles and I'm able to teach beyond simply 'form' but also the unique process of combining the aromatic scents of Australian native botanicals.
What we'll do.
Join your host on an intimate journey into the world of artisan candle making. Craft your very own candle, infused with botanicals from our farm. Have a laugh and enjoy a selection of complimentary alcoholic beverages and a gourmet tasting platter while you learn about fragrances, wax selection, moulds and the history of one of the oldest crafts in the world.
Choose to upgrade your experience by adding a 'tree planting ceremony', where you will take part in contributing to our organic botanical food forrest. (This is a great exercise for those wanting to mark and remember a special occasion with a symbol of new life. We welcome all our guests back to visit the plants they have planted.)
After your class, you're welcome to take a stroll around the magnificent 40 acre property, see the heritage train bridge, try your luck at spotting some of our friendly wildlife or visit the stables to say hello to our horses. We have 1km of riverfront on our land that makes for a fantastic photographic backdrop. We look forward to meeting you soon.
What I'll provide
A selection of gourmet tastes made locally including a mix of both meat and vegan friendly items to suit most people.
Beer, Coffee, Juice, Tea, Water and Wine
Complimentary sparkling or still wine or beer plus non-alcoholic beverages. This is 100% free and is not part of the price you pay to attend the class.
Everything you need to make your candle will be supplied. You'll get to take one large botanical infused candle home with you on the day.
