The Art of Candle Making: Learn A New Skill With Our Candle Making Classes

Lady Making Her Candle

Candle making has been an art form for centuries, with a rich history spanning across different cultures and traditions. The craft of creating candles has evolved over time, from simple beeswax candles to intricate designs that can be created with different wax blends, scents, and colors. If you’re looking for a new skill to learn, candle making can be a fun and rewarding activity to explore. With our candle making classes at Wick and Pour, you can learn the art of candle making and create your own unique candles.

Express Yourself

At Wick and Pour, we believe that candle making is not just a craft, but a form of self-expression. With our candle making classes, you’ll get hands-on experience and learn the basics of candle making, from selecting the right container to choosing fragrances and wicks. Our experienced instructors will guide you through the process and answer any questions you may have.

The Process

The first step in candle making is selecting the right wax. At Wick and Pour, we use high-quality, eco-friendly soy wax that is biodegradable and sustainable. Soy wax is made from soybeans, which are a renewable resource, and it burns cleaner and longer than traditional paraffin wax. We offer a wide variety of colors you can add to your wax, including blending the colors we have to achieve exactly the shade you want.

Once you’ve selected and dyed your wax, you can choose from a variety of fragrances to add to your candle. We have a wide range of scents to choose from, including floral, fruity, and woody fragrances. Our fragrances are made with natural essential oils and are free from harmful chemicals, so you can feel good about burning them in your home.

After selecting your wax and fragrance, you can start the process of creating your candle. Our instructors will guide you through the process of melting the wax, adding the fragrance, and pouring it into a container. You can choose from a variety of containers, choosing the one that will go best in your home — or the one that best suits the person you plan to gift your candle to!

A Personal Touch

One of the benefits of taking a candle making class at Wick and Pour is that you’ll get to create your own unique candle. You can choose from different colors and textures of wax, and experiment with different fragrance blends to create a scent that’s all your own. You can also add decorative elements like dried flowers or herbs to your candle for an extra touch of personalization.

In addition to learning the basics of candle making, our classes also cover important safety tips and best practices for burning candles. We believe that candle making should be a safe and enjoyable activity, and we want to ensure that our students are equipped with the knowledge they need to create and burn candles responsibly.

On top of creating personalized candles, our classes serve as a fun social event. We have gorgeous backgrounds to make for great selfies, so you have memories to hold onto as well as beautiful photos to post to your social media.
