Complete candle making business course

*No obligation to purchase the complete set but we highly recommend to take each course by number order as they build upon the previous courses teaching.

 The Most Extensive Online Candle Education Available Today !

The online candle making course business set up is payed for each lesson, one at a time.

Each course is priced at £100 and there are ten courses. Each e-mail is packed with all the information you need including approx. 10 candle formulas per e-mail. These are the most expensive online courses available for a good reason. When you complete the course you will have all the information to be able to manufacture for retail shops, make to order for interior design stores, hotels, restaurants, weddings, event company’s, gift shops etc or your own store.


You have the option to stop after each course if you wish, however it is in both of our interests that you complete the course and it is important to me that after each stage I get feedback from you before we move on to the next lesson.


The Most Extensive Interactive Courses Available Today 

 All courses require photos of work along with test answers before progressing to the next stage.

Even existing candle makers  need to take the course in order as it is extensive from the beginning.

"My main objective in these Online Courses are two fold. The first is to introduce the many possibilities this medium has to offer with full comprehension of every technique and inspiring each student with the creative ability. The second is a full understanding of the business opportunities available in this field. With over 20 years of experience and extensive, constant research, all techniques are kept current and marketable. Once all courses are completed and the student graduates, there are no other books or courses necessary. It is that complete."

Gary Simmons




My online candle making courses are very successful due to the fact that they are interactive unlike so many other online courses. I don’t just send you the information hoping that it is enough. At the end of each paid course, I expect photos of what you have made and a written test to be completed before we move on to the next course.


You will have a list of what products you need to purchase so you have everything ready to make my designs. The price for you to do this should be around £400 which will include everything to create the candles for the complete online course. You will also have enough product to make stock which will balance the startup cost. This way it is like you are at my Academy and learning the same way. If you want to learn a new business, you need to learn everything step by step, in detail. This will save you money in the long term. With this online course you will find it as extensive as attending one of our seminars. I have structured it in the same way. It starts with the basics and progresses to more complicated techniques as we go along.


The mark up on candles is considerable as the product cost is low, people are paying for designs that are unique. It is an incredibly enjoyable, profitable and creative business to be in. Different candle makers have different ways of doing things. The most important thing is to create an original, marketable candle that will sell, be of good quality, and of course burn correctly. How you get there doesn’t matter for there is no right or wrong way. Once the basics are learnt, this incredibly creative business is only limited by your imagination. Candle making is like being a chef, it is all about timing and organisation. The one thing to remember is that you can never rush a candle. Sometimes mistakes can become new designs or one creation evolves into another.


All of the techniques you find here have been created by years of working with wax and the many possibilities


it has to offer to the creative mind. This medium can be utilised to look like wood, stone or metal. In fact, the

textures and possibilities are endless. Candles today are not necessarily for burning purposes, they have

become works of art to compliment one's living environment. People pay for originality.

Creating original candles has been my profession as a top candle designer for many years. Once you have

learnt candle design, in time your designs will evolve and reflect the individual’s creativity. It is very important

to me that every student is completely satisfied and it is on this premise that has made my school the

Number One Candle School Worldwide. For more information on my qualifications please google:
