Candle Making Class in New York City

Learn how to create beautiful, professional customized candles in this 2.5-hour, hands-on workshop taught by an expert chandler in NYC!

Learn how to create beautiful, customized candles in glass containers in this 2.5-hour, hands-on workshop. Students will blend their 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!

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!

Students learn to design their own coconut wax and coconut beeswax candles. Marla will share her expertise in blending fragrances that provide beautiful hot and cold “throw” and aroma.

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.

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. 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 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 a total of two customized candles – one soy and one coconut wax – in beautiful glass jars by choosing their own color, essential oil and natural fragrance blends. 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.

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.
