Candle making has become quite popular as an easy and affordable alternative to buying candles and making them as gifts. A beginner class is available on Monday where you can learn how to make your own soy candles. Thereafter, you can also join the advanced class on the following Monday. Each class includes a takeaway of 1 candle jar, 2 tea lights, maxi tea light and 6 clam melts all with a fragrance of your choice.
This is an opportunity to pick up the traditional craft of knitting, which can come in useful in the chilly months of Spring. The workshop is held on Tuesdays. You are required to bring your own 4.5mm needles and 10 ply yarn.
