The workshop will take place in a cosy, calm and welcoming atmosphere. We'll leave the busy city life outside to enjoy a relaxing time together in my studio. In the beginning I'll go over the ecological and health reasons why we use Soy Wax and organic cotton wicks for our candles. Then you will spend some time getting familiar with our scent profiles. I'll demonstrate our technique for blending to prepare you for custom blending scents for your own candle. After that, it’s time for you to melt, blend, mix and pour your own candle in our beautiful glass jars together with the cotton wick. You will then be given a personalized kraft paper sticker where you can name your candle. When it’s all finished, the candle actually has to cool for 35 min. There are 3 options: 1) You can come back to pick it up (same day or within 48hrs) 2) I can ship it to your destination when it’s ready (extra shipping costs). 3) You can take it with you after the workshop.
I left corporate America to become a full time chandler and teach the craft of soy candle making back in 2014. I founded KSM Candle Co and teach full time in our beautiful studio located in historic Meadow Mill in Baltimore, MD. It has always been my passion to work with my hands and sharing what I have learned through out the years of research has turned into my purpose.
We will provide everything needed for our guests to create their own custom scented soy candle.
Our Studio is located in Baltimore's historic Mill district. Specifically Meadow Mill, our mill is shared with other businesses and we are directly next to a restaurant with a beautiful patio.
Our studio is currently having a storefront built and in the meantime we are using a temp door directly left of the restaurant's entrance. All workshops are BYOB! We have glasses and a corkscrew to help. The restaurant next door can also sell a bottle of wine if you can't make a stop before hand.
