Have just taken my two children (8 and 6) to Wonders of Wax and we had a great time! The owner is super and so friendly. My children took it in turns to make their candles by dipping a candle in vats of coloured wax. The lady then cut an intricate pattern into the sides to show all the dipped colours and then the kids cut out the letters of their names which they stuck on before it was dipped in varnish and sprinkled with glitter. Very reasonably priced and great fun! Would make an ideal gift for someone too!
Took my daughters a friend to make a candle each in the Easter holidays. Brilliant fun choosing the colours and dipping them in to the numerous wax tubs. Each of them added their names which looked great. I had visions of this being a really messy activity, but surprisingly not! This really would be suitable for all ages, and the lady owner is super helpful and friendly too. Recommended.
After seeing a recommendation on here, and it poring with rain yesterday I took my daughter to Wonders of Wax at Ashridge garden Centre. Jan was lovely and nothing was too much trouble, my daughter loved making her candle all for the bargain of £8. Great thing to do with your kids.
We ventured to Wonders of Wax this afternoon, at ashridge garden centre, after seeing a recommendation on here.
My kids absolutely loved it (aged 6 and 9), it was very reasonably priced (£8 total for each candle) and Jan, the lady that owns the business, was just totally lovely, extremely accommodating and completely encouraged my children's creative juices to flow!
Such a unique and different thing to do.
