Private Workshop / Event FAQ

Get ready to dive into a world of creativity, laughter, and pure enjoyment. Here's what's in store:

Friendly Vibes: A Warm Welcome Awaits

Step into a space that's bursting with warmth, friendliness, and safety. Blaze & Foam aims to create an environment where your creative spirit can run wild while feeling right at home.

Minimum Participants

Gather your crew because private workshops need a minimum of ten enthusiasts or equivalent value to get the party started. If your gang's a bit smaller, don't worry – you can always hop onto one of our public workshops.

Expanding the Guest List

Plans change, we get it. If you need to add more people, we're flexible. Your deposit covers ten participants, and final numbers can be confirmed one week before the event.

Where the Magic Happens

Get ready for creative magic on Melbourne's Mornington Peninsula. If Melbourne is your domain, Blaze & Foam can set up shop there too - see our list of partner venues. And for all the virtual wanderers, we've got virtual workshops that might tickle your fancy.

Wheelchair Friendly Venues

We have an extensive list of wheelchair accessible workshop venues. 

Food and Drinks Delight

Feel free to pack your favourite treats – we're all about BYO food and drink. A fully-equipped kitchen with a fridge is (usually) at your disposal. But hey, while food and drinks are welcome, going overboard with the booze or causing a ruckus isn't part of the deal.

Duration of the Adventure

Get ready to immerse yourself in creativity for a good while. Most classes clock in between 60 to 90 minutes, giving you ample time to explore your creative side.

Overtime Play

If you're having a blast and want to extend the fun, it's all good – with a little heads-up. Just let us know beforehand, and we'll help you keep the creative vibes going longer for an extra fee.

Top-Notch Materials

Our materials are vegan, palm oil-free, and phthalate-free. Plus, our fragrance oils are skin-safe and FDA approved – ensuring a fantastic experience.

Dress Comfortably: 

Comfy is the name of the game. Toss on some closed-toe shoes, just in case you get a bit messy in the creative frenzy. Aprons are up for grabs for the day if you're all about keeping your clothes spick and span.

Weekdays and Weekends: 

Blaze & Foam is game for fun on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. If you don't see your preferred date on the booking calendar, drop us a line.

Age Range Inclusions

Private workshops are open to kids over 5 and teens too – as long as there's a supervising adult from your group.

Arrival Time: Fashionably Early, Please

Aim to arrive 5-10 minutes ahead of time. It's a chance to get comfy before the creative explosion begins. The venue is booked for your allotted time only and cannot be extended if you are late.

No DIY Containers: Use Ours for Safety

When it comes to containers, We've got you covered. We provide containers specifically designed for candle making, ensuring safety and quality.

Fragrances and Essential Oils

Please don't bring your own scents – we've got that covered. We use only IFRA-endorsed fragrances designed for candles and soaps.

Craft Supplies Galore

If you're still in the crafting groove after the workshop, don't sweat it! You can pre-order craft supplies and pick them up at the event. Use code WORKSHOPPICKUP when your order online and drop a note at checkout regarding which date and venue you are attending.

Taking Your Candles Home

Your newly minted candles need a bit of time to fully set – around 1-2 hours. If you're in a 90-minute class, we'll give you a cardboard tray for the semi-set candles to travel home with you on the same day. Or bring your own box. If that doesn't work, shipping is always on the table for a small fee.
