In this online version of one of WorkshopSF’s most popular classes, you will learn to create your own scented soy wax candles! If you have ever wanted to experiment with producing your own soy candles for a little at-home aromatherapy, or make candles to gift to family and friends, this class offers the foundation, tools, and supplies necessary to get you started. First, you will learn about soy wax, how to safely melt it in your new pitcher, and how to customize and blend the wax with fragrances and wax melts for color. You will then learn to properly set your wick and add your wax to a small glass tumbler or jar. After a cooling period to let it to chill and set, your new candle will be ready to get lit! Each student can make up to three candles, and will be provided with a resource guide on where to find additional wax, jars, and fragrances. AND you’ll have all the tools to keep making candles year round!
Supplies Needed: For this class, you will need one of the WorkshopSF Candle Making Kits, which includes all of the wax, dye color blocks, fragrance, glassware, wick supplies, and tools to produce up to three 6oz candles. You will need to provide a stovetop burner, one medium sized pot, paper towels, and a potholder from your home for this class. One WorkshopSF Candle Making class kit is included in the price of the first ticket option. IF you don't want the class kit and just want to watch all the fun and excitement, you may select the ONLINE CLASS ONLY ticket option.
