Cosa farete

Guests will learn all they need to know about pouring their own soy candles scented with essential oils. First we will discuss safety issues and how to find the right equipment to use for as little cost as possible (upcycling encouraged!). Then guests will select their unique candle container while learning what makes an ideal vessel for candle pouring. Next, guests will learn about different wick options and will select their wicks. After adhering their wicks, guests will begin to heat their wax. They will learn how to estimate the correct amount of wax for their containers and the proper steps to heating soy wax for candles including double boiler use and correct temperatures. Guests will then be able to select their essential oil scent or try their hand at blending for a signature scent. After adding their scents, guest will learn tips and tricks for good candle pours! After pouring their candles, guests will have a break-time to enjoy some light refreshments and browse the local art gallery where the event is hosted. Once the candles have set, guests will learn tricks for smoothing out imperfections and be able to bring their candle home! Event is hosted mainly OUTSIDE in a covered tent. Warm clothing is recommended. Due to the use of heat and other potentially hazardous items, this event cannot accommodate guests under age 18.

Amanda

Hi! I am a working artist here in Santa Fe who loves to do all kinds of DIY and creative activities. I started making candles for my own use in my home and then decided to branch out and start selling them! I have been making natural soy candles scented with essential oils for several years and my candles sell in local shops including Sage Mesa Collective in Santa Fe and NM14 Outpost in Madrid. I'm excited to show guests how to create beautiful, affordable candles in unique up-cycled containers.
