Candle Making with Selfmade Candles

Selfmade Candles: Wellness has never smelt so good!

Come and join us at this creative masterclass at Coppa Putney, hosted by Ricki, the founder of Selfmade candles.


Amidst the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, Ricki wanted to maintain her own wellness. Using the jars she had at home alongside natural wax, she was able to source some aromatic essential oils and some wooden wicks to create something new from old. Here her love of refills was born!

During the height of the BLM, as a black woman dealing with her own experiences of overt and covert racism, she felt that there was something she needed to do, and this was how the CONSCIOUS candle was born. A beacon of light even in the darkest times.

Ricki’s natural soy wax candles are hand-poured in London and are vegan-friendly. 5% of all profits are donated to Black Minds Matter UK.

To keep people’s spirits up this winter she will be hosting her very own Selfmade candle making workshop at Coppa Putney. Join in for a therapeutic evening; discovering scents and creating your own beacon of light, alongside a glass of bubbles.

A range of scents will be chosen on the day including, pumpkin spice, ginger spice, chai spice, and flora (lavender and mandarin).

We will keep you well hydrated whilst you work – with teas and coffees, as well as a relaxing CBD Peach Trip cocktail, should you wish to unwind and calm the senses.

Why not tuck into your Coppa favourites before or after the masterclass!

Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light. – Albus Dumbledore
