Make Your Own Candle

Course Overview

In this hands-on workshop, you'll learn how to create your own eco-friendly candles using natural ingredients and reusable materials.⁠

Our facilitator will also share insights on sustainability and circular economy trends as well as the interesting history of candle use and the evolution of materials used.
⁠By learning to make your own soy wax candles and reusing glass containers, you can reduce your environmental impact while creating beautiful and fragrant candles for your home or to give as gifts.

Whether you're a seasoned crafter or simply looking to live more sustainably, this workshop is a great way to learn new skills and connect with your friends.⁠

⁠In this session, you will make two candles, one of which you will take home for yourself the second will be donated to survivors of domestic violence to light up their new home.⁠
