I actually took this candle making class yesterday evening. It was cancelled for the 20th last week. I really enjoyed the class. The teacher was remarkable. She took her time to explain the candle making process step by step. The studio looked amazing. I loved the black tiled floor with streaks of different colors. Both of my candles came out beautifully. The color & scents I choose for making my candles came out very well. I would recommend this class to anyone wanting to make candles.

this was a very thorough class. while you make two different kinds of candles that you can take home and burn, the primary purpose of the class is to review the steps needed to get into candle making as a business. as such, the teacher shares her personal experience, providing tips on where to source for materials and how to price. as a big plus, she’s friendly and approachable, so this is not like a dry lecture, or powerpoint presentation. she also left us with a printed booklet which included a lot of what she went over incase theres something you forget. 5 stars (and im not even a candle person)

Very knowledgeable teacher. After many tries reading candle making books and making candles with crappy results, Marla cut through all the useless info I brought into class and gave straight forward useful techniques, tried and true products…candle wax, wicks, fragrances and candle vessels. I made 2 great candles and left armed with useful info to continue making candles at home. Thank you!!!

We got to make 2 amazing candles. 1 is Soy and 1 is Coconut. They smell amazing. This class is perfect for someone wanting to learn the business side of candles.
