Online Candle Making Courses live via Skype or recorded HD Videos:
Taught by Gary Simmons from the UK - one of the top candle designers in the world - our distance learning candle making courses will start you on the path to an exciting new career in candle design or a very rewarding hobby. Taught through Skype Seminars or a combination of HD video demonstration, PDF files, and email correspondence, our courses are for complete Beginners to Advanced level artists and design professionals. Gary Simmons also teaches on-site candle making courses at his residential school in Jamaica in the Caribbean.

Candle Making Seminars via Skype:
Due to popular demand from students around the world, I now conduct Skype Seminars because many students are more visually-oriented and find taking a seminar with me more practical than written online education.

How Skype Seminars Work: 
You will need to purchase all basic candle making equipment yourself at home, and have a workspace set up for your class. A list of the materials and tools needed is supplied, and you can source these in your home country or with the contacts that your teacher Gary provides. The materials and tools can cost around 350 Euros (approx. 380 / 390 U.S. dollars).

You will need a good Skype connection set up in your work area / studio, and you will see Gary based in his studio in Jamaica. This way, you interact through each step of your journey in becoming a candle designer or skilled candle making hobbyist as if you were working alongside Gary in person.
