What you'll do

The first step of this experience will be to melt the wax necessary for your candle. We'll manage the temperature, which is important. You'll then choose some colors and the fragrance for your candle. We'll run the wax into the molds or grass, or make shapes. Then we'll enjoy tea or coffee while we'll wait for the wax to harden. At the end, you can do the lapping by yourself to complete your candle. Please let me know beforehand what type of candle you want to make. I will inform you of the contents, production time, and the amount of money you'll need to achieve it.

Kaori-sensei was a wonderful host! This workshop was very hands on and I was able to learn some good techniques from Kaori-sensei. I felt at home and Kaori-sensei speaks very good English so communicating was not a problem. Definitely would choose to do this again!

Kaori-san is truly a passionate candle artist. She is very knowledgable and experienced in the art, and when I asked her about her experience with it she was very happy to share! You can tell from the way she talks about candles that she really loves it, and enjoys teaching it to others :) She is very hospitable and patient, and will give you tips and suggestions if you ask for her help. Kaori-san also creates her own dried flowers, and her home is filled with them. Thank you Kaori-san for a very fun workshop!

I had so much fun making soy candles today with Kaori-san. I absolutely love my candles! Also, after making candles, she offered me some nice Japanese tea with sweets. We had a good chat about many things. I would definitely recommend this class to my friends and people who want to make candles!

She was really nice to pick us up from the train station and even sought for a more convenient route for us since we had luggages! She was really passionate and had a variety of resources for us to make our candles!

The host is extremely nice! She even picked us up from the station to lead us to her working place. Her english is understandable and she tries to make us feel at home as much as possible with tea and snacks. The candles are extremely pretty and could even be given as a handmade gift.
