Number of finished candles will vary depending on the containers selected. As an example you could make 3 - 1lb candles, 6 - 8oz candles, 12-4oz candles. Or a combination of sizes to reach 3 pounds. We do work in pound batches (3-colors and scents) to make things easier for your first class.

This is a beginning candle making class. Lots of professional tips can be included but if you are not into that we will limit our babble :)
Candle making times vary greatly. It could take as little as one hour or as much as 3 hours. Candles may not be ready upon leaving and may need to be picked up at a different time. If time is a limiting factor and you want to take them with use big jars and make fewer candles.
Lastly - Please dress accordingly. Wax can get everywhere! Especially shoes (wax falls down). Please wear old cloths and shoes.
