About the Candle Maker Hello! I’m Jennifer Foshay, the owner and soy candle maker at Allen Wick Candles, located in the village of Keene. I love making soy candles and the creative process involved in making new designs. I was born in Peterborough, Ontario, but I spent 10 years in Fort McMurray, Alberta. I needed something to keep me busy and engaged, as the winters are long in Northern Alberta. I first started scrap booking and I enjoyed it, but I needed something more. I searched craft making ideas, and came across an Ontario company selling soy candle making kits. When the kit arrived, I started making immediately, I loved the process. I started ordering more supplies and learning the art of soy candle making. From there I started selling to family, friends, local markets and tradeshows.

I have been making soy candles for ten years! I have learned so much over the years, my products and designs have changed as I learned more techniques. In 2014, I completed an online interactive candle design course through the Candle Academy, French Rivera, France. In the course, I developed my candle making skills and design possibilities.

I love coming up with new candle designs. My favorite candles to make are dessert candles which feature that extra design element. Sometimes designs just pop into my head and other times I get inspiration from Pinterest and Instagram. I love seeing the reactions of my customers when they see a banana split candle or a tea cup candle. It gives them and me joy!

As I developed my candle making skills, my husband I would visit beautiful candle shops. I loved seeing all the candle creations. It was my dream for many years to have my own candle shop to showcase my unique designs. I also have a love for painted furniture and French country décor, so I combined all of it into Allen Wick Candle’s store. When we moved back to Ontario, it was time to find the right location. I wanted the store to have lots of charm. And along the way I realized that I wanted it to be in the community in which I lived. The perfect spot opened up in this 101-year-old schoolhouse! It has an abundance of character. It’s my dream location!
