Peta held her first live candle making demonstration this week on the lovely Isle of Wight. The St Mary’s Arts & Crafts group invited Peta to give a talk so she packed up some moulds, wax, dyes, scents, wick, tabs and a camping stove and booked her passage on the Isle of Wight ferry. Sadly she clearly wasn’t paying attention when she booked the tickets and ended up having to pay a big surcharge. Lesson learned ( I hope).
During the demonstration, Peta did her best Kirstie Allsopp impression and created some scented votive candles, cup of tea container candles and then gave everyone a go at making and taking away their own beeswax candle. Luckily for her, the audience was so impressed they bought a total of 13 cup of tea kits, pro kits and beeswax kits – just about making up for the ferry ticket fiasco!
