Maybe you made candles as a child. Or it's something you've always wanted to do. Or...you just have a "why not!?" attitude. Regardless, making candles is a fun, creative, and maybe even therapeutic experience.
And now you CAN do it. Right here in our store. Grab a group of friends, co-workers, volleyball team members (it happened!), and have a great time learning, laughing, singing (yup...that happened, too), and enjoying learning a new craft. Each participant will create three different types of candles that they will take home.
See below for different classes we offer. For now, we are only offering private group classes due to Covid concerns. Eventually we hope to offer scheduled classes that anyone can attend.
