Transform your favorite mug, teacup, or other vessel into an adorable soy wax candle in an interactive candle-making class on Saturday, June 15th from 3-5pm. The class, led by Chicago candle-maker Jessica Snively, creator of Milton and Margie’s Soy Wax Candles, teaches you everything you need to know to make a soy wax candle in a reused or vintage container.
She’s poured candles in nearly everything that can be described as a “container”—quirkier finds have included a glass cowboy boot, vintage egg cup, honey bear jar, and mug that says “He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother”—so feel free to go on a thrift-shopping spree before class.
Throughout the process, you’ll create your own signature fragrance from a blend of scented soy-based oils. We'll supply a bunch of eclectic oils with options from floral (e.g., Lavender and Juniper) to natural (e.g., Cedar and Eucalyptus) and sweet (e.g., Buttercream and Fudge Brownie) to rugged (e.g., Leather).
What to bring (optional): Bring your own container(s) for the 16 oz. of wax (For reference, 16 oz. of wax will fill a container approximately the size of a standard can of veggies.) OR choose a vessel from Jess' vintage collection onsite!
Ticket includes: 1 lb. of wax (depending on the size of your container(s), you’ll leave with 1–2 completed candles) Vintage vessel (if you didn't BYO) Choice of multiple fragrance oils Beverages & snacks 10% off any purchases at Neighborly the day of the workshop
