Hadnt been since i was younger and the smell of candles when entering brought back good memories. Went with our three children ages 9,7 and 2 1/2. Had a great time painting pottery and candle holders and creating candles. Prices reasonable.

My husband and I enjoyed a great morning at the workshop. We made a candle, candle holder, key ring and figurine. Very good value for money. Definitely not just for kids, we had a very relaxing time doing all the activities.

It was cold weather when we went so dogs were ok in the cars for short breaks with excellent local walks in between, while non dog walkers in the family looked after the youngsters making candles. Worked well.

In my experience, open to all ages and, as there is no entrance fee, those not wanting to make anything can just watch.
