In this candle making class, students will make their own gorgeous glass container candles, blending their own scents and colors. Students will learn from Marla Bosworth, who shares 25 years of experience making and selling candles.
While this class is geared toward those who want to sell candles, it is a great learning experience for anyone who wants to make and give safe candles as gifts to family and friends!
Marla will share her expertise in blending fragrances that provide beautiful hot and cold "throw" and aroma, how to select wicks, production scaling and much more.
In addition to the 3-hour in-person workshop, students will receive lifetime access to a 1-hour recorded Zoom presentation. It is helpful, but not required, to view the online class prior to the workshop.
Much thought and consideration should go into developing a line of candles. Marla 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, creating your own wax blends using beeswax and vegan alternatives, 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. 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 coconut and one for soy wax. If you are developing a line of candles note that there is much research and education that needs to happen prior to selling and launching your candle line for the safety of consumers and for the liability of yourself and your business.
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.
Marla is a natural teacher - patient while answering student questions and providing a highly experiential workshop. If you've ever attended her classes you know she creates a positive, supportive learning environment that is educational and also fun.
