Masterclass with Marla: Natural Candlemaking Workshop - May 1


This is a small class with only 6 spaces available!

Beginner through Advanced Intermediate Class 

This is a 2.5-hour, hands-on, candlemaking workshop taught by Marla Bosworth. This is a small class where you will learn how design your own natural wax candles.

Much thought and consideration should go into developing a line of candles. Marla has been manufacturing and selling candles for 22 years and will cover natural waxes on the market, how to determine which is right for you, how to create safe candles, getting cold and hot throws, colors, testing, liability, legal requirements and much more.

Natural wax candles add warmth, fragrance and charm to any environment. In this workshop you will learn how to create candles in glass containers, choose your own scents and colors. If you are interested in making candles to sell or as a craft for gifts or favors, this class is for you!

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. Learn to blend fragrances that provide beautiful hot and cold "throw" and aroma.

Signup for this live 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:

  • Coconut Wax Candle 
  • Soy Wax Candle 

This is a hands-on class. 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.
