This is a hands-on class where each student will design their own candles. Natural wax candles are a wonderful addition to any indie beauty line or as a launch product. As you know, they add incredible warmth, fragrance and charm to any environment. In this workshop you will learn how to create candles in glass containers, choose your own scents and safely add optional flowers/plants and crystals. If you are interested in making candles to sell or as a craft for gifts or favors, this class is for you!
Join indie beauty expert Marla Bosworth, and learn how to design your own soy and coconut wax candles. Marla will share her expertise in blending fragrances that provide beautiful hot and cold "throw" and aroma.
This workshop is intended for students to have fun exploring different scents while creating their very own candles. Students will choose their own scents and colors for each candle - one for soy wax, and one for coconut wax.
Much thought and consideration should go into developing a line of candles. Marla has been manufacturing and selling candles for 21 years.
Signup for this live NYC workshop also includes access to Marla's online candle class that students can watch and learn at their own pace. The online class goes into depth about choosing wicks, wax, required labeling, pricing and insurance (for those wishing to sell), testing and much more, leaving us with more experiental time in the live workshop for you to design your own candles.
This class is intended for a wide range audience starting with students who have never made candles. Those who are currently making candles, including spa owners, estheticians, indie beauty entrepreneurs and massage therapists. If you are currently making candles, but unsure if they are making them properly or need to troubleshoot wicks, candle burn, etc. you will find this class extremely detailed and helpful.
Students will receive an emailed information-packed handout with detailed instructions, formulas, formulating guidelines, the online webinar and a valuable supplier list that is worth the class alone.
Students will design two candles in glass jars:
Coconut Wax Candle with Essential Oils
Soy Wax Candle with Essential Oils
