Fresh Pour: An Artisan Candle-Making Workshop



Pouring candles and creating scents involve both art and chemistry. We are so excited to welcome you inside our candle studio where we make candle magic daily. We'll cover step-by-step basics as well as share tips and tricks on how to create artisan-quality 100% soy wax candles that burn cleanly, safely, and evenly. All ages welcome. Children under 12 years of age must have direct adult supervision. 


Our workshop is hands-on. Each attendee will select a scent from our fragrance collection (including seasonal scents and limited editions, as available), as well as carefully measure and weigh all ingredients prior to hand-blending and hand-pouring. At the end of the workshop, you get to take your own creation home.


What’s special about our workshop is not only will you be hand-pouring your very own candle from scratch, but you’ll also be pouring into a beautiful concrete vessel of your choice. Each vessel is hand-cast in-house using raw concrete and has its own unique characteristics, making your vessel one-of-a-kind. You can choose from a variety of concrete vessels before the workshop begins.


All Ingredients: 100% soy wax (GMM-free, food-grade), phthalate-free fragrance oils infused with essential oils, lead-free cotton wick

1 hand-cast concrete vessel

Fabulous Fun and Informative!!!

The candle-making workshop was really fun, and Romely and her husband explained every step of the process. We left with our beautiful and wonderfully-scented candles. I loved that it was a small group so we got individual attention when creating our candles.

So much fun!

I had a wonderful morning in the candle-making workshop. What fun and I love the candle I made. Thanks for being such wonderful hosts. Would do this again, 10 out of 10!

Great experience!

My friend and I had a wonderful time making a candle and learning the science behind the difference between and well made candle and a junk candle. Who knew?! My only suggestion would be a little more communication leading up to the class to confirm the class is occurring, suggesting what to bring, etc. other than that, flawless! Thanks for having us.

Michelle Kaminsky
Great gift

We had a great time at the workshop and learned a lot! What’s better than getting a candle as a gift? Making one together!
