About the organiser

Candle maker Karen Allison welcomes you to her workshop in west Wicklow to experience the art of candle making.
“When I decided to become a candlemaker I went and talked to the best, Mr. David Constable, maker of candles for the Harry Potter films and much more. I spent some time with David and he is still a mentor to this day. And the love of the craft grew from that time and continues in my workshop in West Wicklow under Lugnaquilla mountain. It is a setting so beautiful that I never feel I am working as my spirit lifts every time I look out my window at the view I am so lucky to have everyday.”
