Introducing Hohepa Candles.

The Candles Workshop is one of several work centres where people learn and master hand-crafts. Our mission is to bring a bright light into everybody’s life: the candle makers and our customers.
Candle-making is an ancient craft which connects a sense of aesthetics and beauty with a highly developed set of skills which suits the workers well – mostly adults with an intellectual disability. An environment of warmth and colour coupled with a measured working pace which engages and supports people in their physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
