The Smallest Light candle making workshops

As well as creating my own seasonal essential oil blends, natural candles and natural home fragrance, I really believe in providing everyone with the practical skills and knowledge you need to do this yourselves in your own home!

I have found that small group workshops, teaching techniques for soy candle making as well as the basics of essential oil blending, are the perfect setting in which to share my knowledge. The Smallest Light workshops also give me the time and space to get to know some of you lovely folks in person and I am currently seeking out ways to provide virtual workshops delivered straight to your home as well. 

Classes include natural soy candle-making, seasonal essential oil blending and making your own natural room mists. 

See below for details on The Smallest Light’s upcoming workshops and don’t forget to sign up for my mailing list below too – so I can keep you in the loop on future classes and dates!

If you are interested in booking me to run a workshop at an in-person or online event, I would love to hear from you.

Excited to announce a NEW workshop at These Two Hands in Bristol for this coming Autumn 2021!

Seasonal Nature Inspired Candle Making Class

 In this Autumn inspired class, we will explore the scents we are drawn to during the season and how we want to feel supported emotionally, as the days grow shorter. I will show you how to blend scents with essential oils, exploring which oils make good base notes and top notes. You will take away a unique natural candle to keep or give as a gift, as well as a beautiful booklet with all the information to make your own candles going forward.

There will be plenty of hot and cold drinks and seasonal homemade cakes available and all materials are provided. Please put any dietary requirements in the Notes box when booking your place.

Location: The Engine Room, Unit 5, 21-23 Emery Road, Bristol, BS4 5PF

Date: Saturday 2nd October, 2pm to 4.30pm

Cost: £50 per person, maximum of 8 people

I am working on creating a range of simple e-guides and kits on blending essential oils and seasonal candlemaking to fragrance your home throughout the year. Hop on my mailing list below for updates!


Some kind words about my workshops…


“Laura has run workshops at two of my seasonal weekend retreats, helping guests to make autumn-inspired room mists and spring-scented candles. Both sessions were hugely enjoyable and informative, thanks to Laura’s warm and inspiring teaching style and her wealth of essential oil knowledge.

Through The Smallest Light Laura has combined her skills and talent with her passion for nature and the seasons to create truly soulful products and experiences.

If you’re looking for someone to deliver a workshop that will leave participants feeling nurtured, uplifted and more deeply connected to the natural world then I can’t recommend Laura enough.”
