Cheshire Workshops – Candle Making and Family Crafts

Located in the scenic Cheshire countryside on the Sandstone Trail, Cheshire Workshops has a rich heritage as a candle factory. We’ve been candle makers for over 50 years. We used to be known as The Candle Factory and we now specialise in making bespoke candles with personalised images and messages – hand decorated candles. As customers’ demands have changed and candle manufacturing has changed worldwide the business has diversified offering a wide range of candles and candle accessories for sale. The main reason for many people visiting is to make a candle for themselves in the workshops as well as take part in other craft activities.

We’re proud to be a family-run business passionate about providing your family with a great day out. Here’s what you can get up to with a visit to Cheshire Workshops…
