Candle & Diffuser Making Workshop

$120 per person

Creating custom candles and diffusers is not unlike telling a story. What is your base layer? How do your mid notes come to life? How will you layer oils and scents to bring about a totally unique, complex fragrance? Come hang out in our beautiful factory space for two hours, create two custom scents and tell stories all your own. Pro-tip: We find a glass of wine, bubbly or craft beer can help unlock your narrative gifts.

Please note: Due to our calendar planning and the staffing of our classes, we cannot accommodate walk-ins. Please register online by clicking the 'Book Now' button
