Our signature scented candle making workshop is offered year round and is the perfect introduction to candle-making. Choose a fragrance from our candle Library, learn how to blend wax and fragrance oil, wick your jars, and pour two 9oz glass jars to take home. Did we mention all classes are BYOB? Candles are ready for pick-up the next day.
Maker Break Workshop
Maker Break: noun (mey-ker breyk) a monthly workshop series hosted by Candlefish and taught by our favorite local makers and creators.
Every month, the candle-makers take a break from making candles, step out of the workshop (just a few steps), and open our workshop space to our creative neighbors, allowing them to design and execute the workshop of their dreams. Past workshops include flower arranging, leather wallet crafting, essential oil perfumery, and even soap making. Check out your local Candlefish to see what's coming up in your area, and join us for a great workshop experience!

Essential Oils and Fragrance Blending Workshop
The newest addition to our workshop offerings, this workshop is your chance to create your very own candle fragrance using a selection of essential oils and candle fragrance oils. Also offered year round, join us to learn the basics of perfumery, explore common top, middle, and dry notes, and create two unique fragrance blends of your very own. Workshop goers pour two 9oz glass jar candles to take home, and all candle-making equipment is provided. Candles are ready for pick-up the next day.
Botanical Hurricane Workshop
Our favorite way to say “hello” to Spring, our Botanical Hurricane workshop offers an array of bright florals and dried herbs (think eucalyptus, rosemary, lavender) preserved in a wax hurricane, or as we like to call it, a forever candle. Workshop goers will use candle molds to create two wax "hurricanes" using paraffin wax and a selection of natural botanicals. Choose scents from our Library of 100 Fragrances to add to your creation, and head back to the shop the next day to pick up your hurricane. This is a seasonal class offered at our Charleston location, check out the class page to snag your spot!
Vintage Vessel Workshop
If you love collecting eclectic vessels as much as we do, this will be your new favorite workshop. This workshop runs just like the scented candle workshop, except you will choose a variety of curated tea cups, tins, and bowls (provided by us) to use as your candle vessel. All class goers use 16oz of wax, choose a fragrance from our Library, and pour up 2-6 candles (depending on the vessel sizes.)
