As the owners of Chicago Candle Company, Fernando & Sara have been experienced candle makers for 6 years now as they have grown their Chicago based business into a real brand. The husband and wife duo now have a warehouse space where they hand cut wine bottles and also design fragrance blends for the soy candle line.

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.

Fernando and his wife were awesome! It was a fun, informative class and we took home beautiful candles. I’d highly recommend it to anyone.
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!!!
