Create your own beautiful, customized candles in glass containers in this 2.5-hour, hands-on workshop taught by a master chandler. Students will blend their own scents and colors. If you are interested in making candles to sell or as a craft, this class is for you.
?This workshop is intended for students to have fun exploring different scents while creating their very own soy and coconut wax candles. Students will choose their own scents and colors for each candle.
Much thought and consideration should go into developing a line of candles. Marla Bosworth has been manufacturing and selling candles for 24 years and will cover the many natural waxes on the market, how to determine which wax is right for you, how to create safe candles, getting cold and hot throws, colors, testing, insurance/liability requirements, labeling requirement, resources for packaging (containers, boxes, labels, wax/wicks, colorants) and much more.
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. If you are interested in making candles to sell or as a craft for gifts or favors, this class is for you! ?If you have an existing beauty business, or are launching one, you'll love how these candles easily cross-sell with the rest of your line.??
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. ?This class is perfect for newbies, spa owners, estheticians, clean beauty entrepreneurs, massage therapists and for those who are currently making candles, but unsure if they are making them properly or need to troubleshoot wicks, candle burn, etc.
Students will receive an emailed information-packed handout with detailed instructions, formulas, formulating guidelines and a valuable supplier list that is worth the class alone.?
Marla creates highly experiential workshops - a holistic perspective of learning by transforming new and ancient wisdom. If you've ever attended her classes you know she creates a positive, supportive learning environment that is educational and also fun.?
