Wax Atelier

Wax Atelier

Wax Atelier re-visits traditional techniques ranging from candle dipping to crafted textiles using natural wax. Making becomes a tool to experience the interconnection between the natural world and material culture.

Operating as usual

Launching soon ✈️

We’re very excited to announce our collaboration with @hoste.london and @moetchandon for @restaurantkits launching on 18.1.2021 🌸🍾🕯🍽

Stay safe &
Happy New Year 🤍 x

Meet our team of 15 new makers! 💪💪💪

All of our makers live in the London borough of Barking & Dagenham, where our wax factory is now based.

After an intensive 5 week training programme, all of our trainees have passed will flying colours, and are now ready to produce our collections of handmade candles and waxed linen products.

In return, we guarantee ongoing training, a London Living Wage and regular work in a safe and inclusive environment.

This social enterprise was only made possible with the help and support from the wonderful @everyone_org & @participatorycitymaking

Introducing our Candle Shaver — 🕯🪒

Made from a single piece of stainless steel metal, this functional object is a joy to use 💥

Use it like a pencil sharpener to taper the ends of candles to fit different candleholder sizes.

Made in the U.K.

Available now on our website at waxatelier.com

WAX:Works >> our trainees have now competed the Candle Making training!

During three intense days together at the factory, we delved into all the details behind the traditional technique of dipped candles and the production of our collections.

Well done to this horde of makers and we look forward for the next stage of the program! 👏🏻

This program couldn’t be possible without the support from @everyone_org and it’s super team 🙌🏻

We are thrilled to announce our residence at @ssonecircle Chiltern Street store for @londoncraftweek

30 Sept - 10th Oct
Opening times: 10am - 5pm

For London Craft Week, Ssōne and Wax Atelier invite you to attend a limited spaced, socially distanced workshop in Ssōne’s Chiltern Street store. Lola and Yesenia of Wax Atelier will be guiding you through a workshop where a piece of Ssōne fabric is dipped in natural wax sourced from offcuts in the production.

Caroline Smithson, Creative Director and Founder of Ssōne will then guide you through an embroidery workshop where you will create a matt for a cup or table setting. Alongside the workshop, Wax Atelier will also be creating an art installation in the Chiltern Street store, which will be available to view throughout craft week.

Green Tea Celebration Candles in a palette ranging from pale green to an almost seaweed black.

Made from a blend of Green Tea wax and white beeswax. When lit, these candles release a subtle aroma of matcha tea and freshly cut grass.

We hope your Easter weekend was nice, and that you are keeping safe. Hope that the love of the ones that are close to your heart - but not near you at the moment - reached you anyhow! 🖤🐇🌱

On our end, we had a fun egg hunt in the garden. We make the best to keep cultivating joy in our everyday, enjoying simple things, such as looking at the beautiful blossoms all around us. Actually, some say that ‘Easter’ takes its root in pagan origins. It is believed that the word is based on the name of the fertility goddess ‘ Ē ostre’. So let’s enjoy the beauty in the shades of green around us and see this as hope for renewal and change!
Here is our last batch of Beeswax Candles dyed with Green Tea wax that we enjoyed over the weekend! These are now all ready, packed with care and available to order from our online shop (Follow the link in bio) - Free delivery to the UK.
We can deliver these by bike on your doorstep if you live in London, in the following postcodes: E1, E2, E3, E5, E8, E10, N1, N16

We are keeping our head and hands busy making at home with the family around!

It’s been a little while since we started looking at ways to colour our beeswax candles, and here is our first batch of candles dyed with Green Tea Wax!

Using different ratios of green tea wax, we have managed to create a fresh Spring palette that ranges from pale pistachio greens, to deep seaweed green. Just from having these candles hanging in the room, you will get a natural scent of green tea and honey.

This is our first collection of naturally coloured Celebration Candles, all handmade in our home-studio. In the midst of these strange times, we could call it an ode to the awakening nature all around us.
