Beginner through Advanced Intermediate Class
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 hands-on workshop, you will make your own candles, 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 green beauty cosmetic scientist, Marla Bosworth, and learn what it takes 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. Marla has been manufacturing and selling candles for 21 years.
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. If you are developing a line of candles note that there is much research and education that needs to happen prior to selling and launching your candle line for the safety of consumers and for the liability of yourself and your business.
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 perfect for newbies, spa owners, estheticians, green beauty entrepreneurs, massage therapist and for those who are currently making candles, but unsure if they are making them properly or need to troubleshoot wicks, candle burn, etc.
You'll receive an emailed information-packed handout with detailed instructions, formulas, formulating guidelines and a valuable supplier list that is worth the class alone.
Students will design two candles in glass jars:
