Candle Making Workshop

Thursday, December 1, 6:00pm

You’ll be surprised at how much you don’t know about candles! We’ll discuss types of candles, which waxes are best suited for which type of candle, wick and heat resistant container sizes, the difference between essential oils and fragrance oils, and how to burn a candle. Each participant will make one container candle using soy wax and can choose from a variety of seasonaly inspired fragrance oils. Once the wax has cooled undisturbed for approximately 24 hours, participants will take their candle home and may burn it after a 2 week curing period.

The program is open ages 13-adult. The wax is hot and fragrance oils can be strongly scented. Registering a child under 18 years old for this event indicates that the parent/guardian acknowledges the possibility of injury to the child attending the workshop. Program starts promptly, no admission is allowed after instructions are given.

Snow date: Tuesday, December 6th at 6:00 pm
