What you'll learn in this candle making class:

A class that offers not only candle making but also the art of upcycling glass containers as the vessel for the candle! Choose from one of our upcycled wine bottles or bring your favorite wine/champagne bottle from home and we will show you how easy it is to repurpose it into something amazing!


We will be covering introductory glass cutting and hand pouring of each candle with soy wax. Choose from different cocktail scents such as Barrel Aged Bourbon, Old Fashioned Cocktail or Whiskey & Sweet Tobacco! Have fun learning something new and feel great that you will be taking home a premium soy candle without that high-end price tag.

Evening and weekend classes available! 

What to Bring:
OPTIONAL: A wine bottle if you have a favorite or empty one laying around. We do provide them as well. Feel free to BYOB. We have wine glasses! (You must be at least 21 years old to drink alcoholic beverages.)

Prerequisites:
Anyone is welcome, no experience is necessary.

What's Provided:
Glass wine bottles for filling and all necessary ingredients/tools.

Enter and park on Carpenter - parking is safe and free- then walk into an opening where you will find a big loading dock area. There is a glass door in the right corner and you will enter there. Look for the Bank of America Marathon banner. Code for door *0105 and come up to the 4th floor, hang a right and walk all the way down - you will smell candles - follow your nose. :)

DIY Soy Candles, Wine Bottle Cutting
Reviewed by Cathy P. on 8/4/2019
This small family owned candle making company distributes their beautiful candles Nation-wide. Each glass container and candle is crafted by hand and yet, they find the time to share their mastery with us. So generous!! The class was perfect, I learned a lot and am inspired to make my own candles at home.

Fernando was a kind, funny, and patient teacher! It was really cool to learn about this process (and a great arm workout too, ha ha). Made for a great birthday present for my friend, and both got to take home a keepsake of the experience. You get to choose your bottle, wax color, and scent -- so it's really personal. A great way to make use of a special wine bottle too.

Overall, it was a great class and I learned a lot. It was extremely hot in there though. Also, need a 2nd instructor.

This class was so much fun! Creating a candle of your own liking is wonderful. By that, I mean you get to pick the scent you like and in addition to that, you can also make the wax a color you want from what is available. Pleasant afternoon with my daughter. Will definitely do it again!!!
