Join us on Thursday July 25th from 6:30-8pm to transform your favorite mug into an adorable soy wax candle in an interactive candle-making class. 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. Jess will 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 one or two vessels (mug, teacup, tin can) to fill with wax or choose a vintage piece from Jess' collection.
Ticket includes: 16oz of soy wax (enough for 1-2 candles depending on container size) Fragrance oils to concoct your own custom blend Guidance from Jess on scent mixing and candlemaking Batch cocktails to get the creativity flowing 10% off any purchases at Neighborly the day of the workshop
