Hi! We're Sara and Fernando Velarde, two young entrepreneurs and owners of Chicago Candle Co. We launched this candle company in 2013 out of our home. More than 5 years, 50 retail partnerships, and thousands of online sales later, our small business has become something much, much larger and we couldn't be more proud.

We hand-pour our vegan soy wax into cut and polished upcyled bottles. This includes bottles recycled from local shops and cafes in the Chicago-land area! Every candle is still hand-crafted and made right here in Chicago. Our unique scents are made from natural essences that are intensely fragrant. Our special blends are made out of 100% all-natural, clean-burning wax.

This small family owned candle making company distributes their beautiful candles Nation-wide. Each glass container and candle is crafted by hand and yet, they find the time to share their mastery with us. So generous!! The class was perfect, I learned a lot and am inspired to make my own candles at home.

Fernando was a kind, funny, and patient teacher! It was really cool to learn about this process (and a great arm workout too, ha ha). Made for a great birthday present for my friend, and both got to take home a keepsake of the experience. You get to choose your bottle, wax color, and scent -- so it's really personal. A great way to make use of a special wine bottle too.

Overall, it was a great class and I learned a lot. It was extremely hot in there though. Also, need a 2nd instructor.

This class was so much fun! Creating a candle of your own liking is wonderful. By that, I mean you get to pick the scent you like and in addition to that, you can also make the wax a color you want from what is available. Pleasant afternoon with my daughter. Will definitely do it again!!!
