Join us for an afternoon candle making workshop at Slow North's brick-and-mortar shop!
In this class, you'll learn all about our candle making process. You'll explore the benefits of paraffin-free soy wax, then dive into the properties of essential oils to create a custom, all-natural scent blend before mixing and hand-pouring your candle.
Your creation will also come with some major bragging rights - not only will your handmade candle be completely customized, it'll also be made from all-natural, sustainable, and biodegradable ingredients!

Here's what past workshop participants have had to say:
"I highly recommend taking this class, if you're interested in making candles as a serious hobby or just want a fun activity for an afternoon with a friend, family, or a significant other. I loved how you were able to take your time and sample 14 different oils to choose the exact combination you wanted to make. Very informative and fun."

"My first time at Slow North and first time making a candle! Super informative learning about soy wax and essential oils. Can't wait to light my candle!"
- Michelle E.
"This was such a fun class at Slow North! I hadn't stopped inside before but found it nicely designed with lots of attractive products... The whole process of making a candle from scratch was enjoyable and it was nice making new friends around the table and seeing what each person brought to their blend. Thanks for having me!"
