Sarah Ditchfield's candle-making journey started after her husband bought her a candle-making kit one Christmas. She developed her skills and began to experiment with different types of waxes, dyes and fragrances. Sarah sold many of her initial creations to independent shops, hotels and restaurants.
In 2012, Sarah launched her company, Candle by Events, which runs candle-making workshops for individuals and organizations. Her company also runs corporate events, parties and family fun days at locations across the UK. Candle by Events also produces kits and runs live online candle-making workshops.
