Candle Making Classes
Looking for something fun to do this summer? Grab a friend and come make your own Happy Little Flame candle in our new Creative Studio!
When you arrive for your class, your guide will greet you and show you where you can hang up your coat/belongings, and get an apron. You can grab yourself a drink, find a seat at our maker's table, and settle in!
At your seat, you'll find a tray with everything you'll need to make your candle as well as a your own scent guide with room to take notes. In the middle of the maker's table you'll find lots of fragrance samples for you to sniff and explore. Choose your favorites, take notes, and use your imagination! Creating your own unique scent by blending different fragrances together is part of the fun!
The class will begin with your guide showing you how to prepare your jar, mix your fragrance(s) in the wax, stir, and then pour. You'll learn about the importance of temperatures and ratios, and once you're done - you'll learn the most important step. PATIENCE! Even though you'll want to burn your candle right away, curing is imperative to the process. You must wait 2 weeks before you can enjoy your creation!
(best for individuals and groups under 6 people)
(best for groups of 6 or more)
Depending on the size of your candle, it can take 1-2 hours to cool.
Waiting for your candle to cool is the perfect time to explore all of the fantastic shops and restaurants in Libertyville! Ask your guide for some recommendations if you're unfamiliar with the area.
If you'd rather not wait for your candle to cool, you are welcome to pick it up anytime during our regular store hours, or we can ship it to you for a flat fee.
Unfortunately at this time we do not have the staff to accommodate walk-ins.
Due to the nature of our craft, we ask that you do not bring in outside food. You may bring in your own beverage!
