Make a memorable hen party and learn how to make a soy wax candle with the London Refinery.
The Candle Making Class
One of our London Refinery refiners will take you through fragrance making and give you the skills to make a candle at home while enjoying a glass of bubbly.
Hens will start by learning about how our sense of smell works and how fragrance affects our mood and emotions. They will then learn about the different fragrance families and what top, middle and base notes are.
Then they will use the range of essential oils to blend into their own candle. They will start by heating of the wax, blending of the oils, and finish with pouring their own 180ml candle to take home (or delivered after the party). Each hen will have their own blending equipment, mixing jug, whisk, glassware provided. The class will last for 1.5 hours.
We have a range of beautiful locations from the The Elgin in Notting Hill or Martello Hall with their large cocktail lounge next to London Fields, we can also discuss using your own location in the UK.

We can also design and manage your hen party. We work with a range of exceptional event designers and stylists who can create the x-factor for your evening. From the venue styling, floral displays and invites, to the canapés and cocktails we can design to your specification and style.

'The London Refinery recently delivered a Candle Making Masterclass for a hen party I organised. All 18 hens (and most importantly the bride) had a brilliant time. Would highly recommend!' Kate, London.

Lucy was great - she made the session really fun and engaging, giving us all total freedom to create our very own bespoke fragrances. I have to say the process was much less complicated than expected - and could easily be enjoyed by all! It was the ideal hen activity (flower crowns are so last year!)! Would highly recommend!'
