Since the early 1960s it has been recognised that candle making is an inspirational and inspirational craft.   The basic techniques are easy to master, you need no special skills, and learning the basics is no more difficult that learning how to make an omelet!    Once you have mastered the first principles it is great fun to explore more sophisticated ideas.  

Wax is the most beautiful material to work with. You can dye it, mould it, shape it and scent it.    We supply additives to soften it (micro cyrystalline soft) or harden it (micro cyrystalline hard).  When softened it is malleable - few people can resist playing with the texture of molten wax - and permanent when it has been dyed, moulded and hardened.

When you make candles you can also control the way they burn.  They can burn down the inside (which makes them refillable), burn evenly  or foliate  (when the wax folds in two as it burns down).

Candles make wonderful gifts - and its great fun to make your own.   You can make candles inscribed with friend's names, birthday date, age, or astrology sign.   It is easy to transform a basic candle for a special occasion such as Christmas or Valentines. Make your own wedding favours - please see our
wedding candle making project on the left.

There are several ways in which you can brighten up candles you have bought ready made - look under our 'bulk discount' section in our shopping pages if you want to buy candles cheaply to do this.  

Once you become proficient in this exciting craft you can make extra money by selling your candles - most candle factories started with small beginnings!

It is not necessary to spend a great deal of money on basic supplies.   You can re-cycle wax from you candle ends and many everyday objects make great candle moulds.   We supply a full range of moulds - but try bun tins for floating candles, pouring wax into flower pots to make garden candles;   many discarded food containers also make great candle candle moulds.

The Candle Making Club is run by Sue Spear, founder of  The Candle Shop (London) Ltd, FORMERLY situated in the Piazza of London's Covent Garden. Please contact our shop on the New Kings Road (020 7736 0740) for stock availabilty. Alternatively order online.  She has been making candles for over 30 years and has written a book - 'Candle Making in a Weekend' & features several well illustrated step by step candle making projects - sadly it is now out of print!
