What is a candle?
A candle is typically a wax cylinder with a wick in the middle, which can be lit to produce light and diffuse scents as it burns.
Can I select the type of candle I'll be making?
Of course! You would be able to select the type of candle before the workshop. Our popular product picks are the Scented 2-in-1 Candle and the Basic Soy Candle.
What type of wax would I be using to make my candle?
EPIC Workshops offers two different types of candle wax - soy wax and gel wax. We use soy wax over paraffin wax as it is a more environmentally-friendly clean burning wax.
Do I get to bring my candle back after the workshop?
Yes! You will be able to bring back the candle that you made with your own two hands straight after the workshop.
Can I burn the candle that I make?
You can choose to burn your candle, or simply keep it around for decoration purposes. Just be sure to wait at least 24 hours after the end of your workshop to start burning your candle, so that it has the opportunity to cool down and set completely.

Our facilitators would start by explaining the basic concepts regarding candles and candle wax, before moving onto the hands-on candle making activity. The session would conclude with a photo-taking session with everyone holding their completed candles.
What materials do I need to make a candle?
The required materials include a glass container, a wick, and some candle wax!

All these materials are provided for you at our candle making workshops, along with a variety of candle scents for you to choose from, colours for our soy candle workshops, and decorations for our 2-in-1 candle workshops.
