Event description
Venture behind the scenes of a working candle factory in the heart of Glasgow. Witness the different mesmerising production techniques perfected over 122 years by the UK’s oldest candle manufacturer as we manipulate masses of molten wax!
Shearer Candles is a family business in its third generation. Join Rosey, the resident "nose" of Shearer Candles, on a guided tour of our candle factory, as we see state of the art candle making machinery in action! Rosey will talk you through the wonderful world of waxes, wicks and fragrances and how the industry has changed over the years.
You will also pour your own candle to take home with you!
