Candlemaking Workshops

Learn to make your own pillar candles! In these workshops, you will "build" a set of candles, including prepping the molds, choosing your own scent and color combinations, and learning how to finish the candles after they are poured. Proper burn techniques (yes, there's a "right way" and a "wrong way" to burn candles!), properties of the wax, and additional information will also be shared. Candle kits will be offered for sale for those wanting to make their own candles at home, and you will receive all of the instruction necessary to be successful at turning out beautiful, functional candles on your own.


~ Basic Candlemaking (Wax Composition: paraffin blend): In this workshop, you will make two pillar candles, including learning how to "build" the molds, and choosing the colors and scents in whatever combination appeals to you. 


Where: The Earth Goods Production Shop

Difficulty: Easy

Duration: 3 Hours


~ Sweet Shop Candlemaking (Wax Composition: paraffin blend): In this workshop, you will be building candles in two non-traditional molds: parfait cups and cupcake liners! Choose from a variety of color combinations and bakery scents to create delicious "treats" such as iced coffee, strawberry smoothies, blueberry parfaits, and spiced cupcakes. Learn to whip cooling wax and top your creations with "whipped cream" and "icing", and finish your smoothies off with a cherry (handmade by you) and a straw - the end result is a creation that looks like the real thing, but burns just like a regular candle!

Where: The Earth Goods Production Shop

Difficulty: Easy

Duration: 3 Hours



And here's a bonus: During the cooling phase for the Basic and Sweet Shop workshops (when the candles have to cool enough to be removed from the molds), the class participants can pick something from another workshop that they would like to know more about, such as Soapmaking, Energy Work, Dowsing, or Foraging, and we will provide you with a "sampler" of information at no charge. This could include things such as learning how to "feel" energy, dowsing the energy of a tree or person, foraging basics, or any other of a number of things that might pique your interest!
