Candlemaking Classes

Learn to Make Candles

The Hudson Valley’s history dates back centuries. And during all that time, people made candles. Now you can experience a piece of Hudson Valley history by making some of your own!

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. 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 a new craft. Each participant will create three different types of candles that they will take home.

We offer weekly classes on Saturdays, private group classes (5-8 people) and corporate team-building classes (in-store or we can come to you!). All classes take place in our Hudson Valley store located in the heart of Kingston, NY.
