Walk-in Candle Making

Candle Making: Walk-In Activity

Walk in to create your own chunky candle at our Portland or Vancouver studios! Chunky candles can be created with fun colors and shapes, and are unscented.

Step 1: Choose Your Candle Shape

Choose from several different shapes and sizes for your candle base.

Step 2: Design Your Candle

Pick your colorful wax shapes to put around the edges of your candle using our sticky wax. Configure them how you like and make your candle your own. Keep in mind chunky candles do not have a fragrance.

Step 3: Leave Your Candle With Us

Once you’re happy with how your candle design looks, we’ll overpour your candle with paraffin wax to solidify your design. Please allow 2 studio days.

Step 4: Put On the Finishing Touches

Let us know if you want to add glitter to your candle, and we’ll finish it for you and you will be able to take it home!

Workshop Details

During our hands-on Candle Making workshop you will go on a scent exploration & learn how to pour your own candle. Because we know how much you love to share, we’re letting you create 2 candles so you have one to give as a gift! We use all-natural soy wax, which is environmentally friendly and has a longer burn time than paraffin candles.

Accessible Art for Everyone

I don’t have a creative bone in my body but they make art accessible for everyone! My husband did the glass blowing, the younger kids did candle making, and the older daughter did glass fusion. I’m going to try painting on canvas next time. We will definitely be going back!

Made a Great Gift

I had fun making a chunky candle one day as a walk in. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to make my mom for her birthday and this ended up being the perfect project. My candle came out really nice and the glitter they dusted on top made it so pretty. She loved it and I had fun making it, now I know what I’m going to make as gifts from now on.
