Hi, I'm Phoebe and I run Fire Nest alongside my partner Will. We run a variety of different Craft Workshops including Candle Making, Pottery Hand-Building, Bath Bomb Making, Perfumery and much more. Alongside this, we also sell Hand-Crafted At Home Craft Kits and hand-made products.
We started our business back in 2019, and within 5 months we decided to both go full-time due to the demand and it is the best decision we've ever made!
We look forward to hosting you soon.
We host our Workshops in a few different locations, for groups of up to 6 people we host these at our Home Studio based in Kempston, Bedfordshire. For groups of 10 and above, we host these in the quaint village of Stagsden at Stagsden Village Hall.
We also host Private Workshops where we can host the Workshop in the comfort of your own home for groups of 2+ within Bedfordshire. We do also love to travel with our Workshops, so we can still host for you outside of Bedfordshire, we just charge a small mileage fee per mile.
