Chicago candle-maker Jessica Snively, creator of Milton and Margie’s Soy Wax Candles, teaches you how to make soy candles from start to finish.
Throughout the process, you’ll create your own signature fragrance from a blend of scented soy-based oils. We'll supply a bunch of eclectic oils with options from floral (e.g., Lavender and Juniper) to natural (e.g., Cedar and Eucalyptus) and sweet (e.g., Buttercream and Fudge Brownie) to rugged (e.g., Leather).
All the supplies are provided, including wax and fragrance oils. You can have your guests bring their own containers or request containers for an added fee of $2 per container. Each participant gets 1 lb. of wax, and depending on the size of your container(s), each guest will leave with 1–2 completed candles.
CLASS LENGTH - MINIMUM 2 HOURS
Classes for up to 8 participants last approximately 2 hours.
I can travel to any venue—including private homes and office spaces—in the Chicagoland area. A location with a stove onsite is preferable, but I can arrange to bring hot plates to spaces without a stove. If you do not have a chosen venue in mind, we can work together to find the perfect space.
For a standard, 2-hour class for 4 people or more, I charge $40 per person.
For a standard, 2-hour class for 3 people or fewer, I charge $45 per person.
