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.

One thought on “Candle Making Class: Rolling Hill Candle Company”
I work with Tom Seay, Executive Producer for the television show Best of America by Horseback, which is viewed on the RFD-TV and Cowboy Channel by over 50 million viewers thru Direct TV and Dish Network. We are holding our 4th Annual Daniel Boone Days in conjunction with Culpeper’s Farm Tour, to be held at Tom’s place – Andora Farm in Culpeper, VA., September 19th – 20th, 2020. We will be having a variety of vendors – Spinners and Weavers, Blacksmith, Soap maker, Muzzle Loading demonstration, Dutch Oven Cooking, and much more.
We would like to invite River City Belle to attend our event to present demonstrations on how to make candles to the public. We anticipate 2,000 individuals of the public to attend our event. There is no charge to the vendors to attend, and if there are any wares in which you wish to sell to the public, the profits of any sales goes directly to you. Lunch meals and refreshments are provided to you at no charge. We will be doing some filming of this weekend for future production of our television show, so there is a chance that River City Belle may be filmed.
If you are interested in attending our exciting event, please email me to answer any questions and for further information. Thank you for time.
