About Us
Image 1

We are a small company who started trading in 2004 but the partnership already had nine years experience in this field.

Extensive research has been undertaken by us into the history of lighting and its consequences on society.As costumed performers we can demonstrate candlemaking with an emphasis on various periods - medieval, Tudor, seventeen century, eighteenth century or Victorian. The demonstrations are accompanied by an interesting talk on lighting during that,and other periods. We have artifacts, some original, some reproductions which we use to give "hands on" experience.

Our customers include English Heritage, National Trust, County councils and local councils, museums, castles, schools, film & media companies, re-enactment Fayres, historical lecturers and re-enactors. We are regular traders at re-enactment Fayres,etc.

Our children''s candle workshops are very popular as they allow ''hands on'' creativity.

Our candles are all handcrafted to a high standard and where handpainted detail is applied, non toxic paints are used, our figurine candles can be produced without wicks (for the younger "candle" user).

Our range of products and services are continually expanding. Please contact us for our latest information.

17th Century Chandlers outside the Cromwell Museum

We have been engaged by the Cromwell Museum several times, each time attendance at the museum has increased considerably.

Medieval Chandlers
Do you know the history of medieval candles? As medieval chandlers we can entertain, demonstrate and inform our audiences - your visitors.

19th Century Chandlers at Guernsey
Candy stripes - not very 19th century. The sponsor insisted on the stripes so we endeavoured to look as 19th century as possible and a great day was had by all - the sponsor was delighted. This picture shows that you, the sponsor, get what he wants.

Tudor/Elizabethan

The photo was taken at Ingrestre Festival. The costumes are high status which reflects that of a successful Tudor/ Elizabethan chandler.

COVENTRY PRIORY VISITOR CENTRE

We were engaged to work a ''drop in'' candlemaking workshop to coincide with the schools half terms. Four activities were set up for children up to the age of 14 years. A great fun-time was had by all (including us). Usual attendances are approx 60 per day. In 2006 the attendance to our wookshop was 757, 2007 it was 900+, 2008 880+, 2009. The organisers were astounded and delighted.
