My mom and I are always looking for new classes to take to learn new skills. As soon as I saw the posting for the Wax and Wine event at Ashton Creek Vineyard, I knew we had to go! Rolling Hill Candle Company partnered with Ashton Creek to host the candle making class. The class cost $35 and included candle supplies and a drink ticket. (Don’t worry, if you don’t drink wine you can swap your drink voucher for a soda.)
Candle Making Class
The Ashton Creek event space is lovely and perfect. The folks at Rolling Hill Candle Company took the time to set each workspace up correctly and ensured each participant each had all the materials they needed to complete their candle.
Rolling Hill Candle Company allowed us to mix our candle scent from a variety of scents the company provided to us. I opted to combine a citrus vanilla blend inspired by one of my favorite Yankee Candles (Tangerine and Vanilla).
Once we perfectly mixed our scents, we combined our scents with candle wax. We then poured the scented candle wax into our jars and waited for the wax to solidify. The wax solidifying takes about an hour, but this is a great time to catch up with your friends.
The candle workshop was incredibly easy and fun! All I want to do is pour candles; it was an incredibly therapeutic experience. Are you interested in taking a candle making class? Well, you’re in luck! Rolling Hill Candle Company is hosting another workshop on February 24, 2019.
