OPEN: Easter to Sept - Saturdays and Sundays 10am - 4pm Come and learn the ancient craft of Candlemaking in a fun, relaxed environment. Booking is necessary for our half-day Candle Workshops. However, to make a single, hand-dipped candle it may be possible to drop-in – although we recommend you phone ahead first to avoid disappointment! During School Holidays we have extra opening days for DROP-IN CRAFT WORKSHOPS for all ages and abilities. GROUPS - please email or telephone to check availability if before traveling. The Candle Alchemist Craft Studio is located just 3 miles from Newborough Forest and Llanddwyn Beach - an inspirational setting for learning a new skill. NOTE: The workshop is on the first floor with access via a set of stone steps to the rear of the building.
