This class was everything what I expected it to be. The course included theory on different types of wax, wicks, vessels, and a hands on candle making portion. The instructor was great! She was very helpful and informative, and I left with 3 candles to bring home. Super happy with the experience!

Really liked this class. My girlfriend and I took this class and had a lot of fun, learning about different types of candles and the different processes of making them. We got to take home 3 candles each, which is pretty great. And they had a lot of different scents to choose from, some very unique (such as Tattoo Shop or Absinthe). Overall, if you want to learn how to make candles, or just want an interesting date, I would definitely recommend this class. Oh, and to the vegans out there: While its not particularly stressed during this class, it is, in fact, all vegan. No beeswax used.
