Join us at our Store at 1050 W Bryn Mawr in Chicago for a unique Candle Making experience! We’ll walk you through the entire creative process. You'll choose from our fragrances to blend your own singular custom scent for your two candles. At the end of the class, you’ll have two Travel Tins of your own personal scent to take home! (For example, you can blend Rosemary Grapefruit and Champagne to create your two 'Grapefruit Mimosa' candles!) You’ll also design your own labels for your candles with provided art supplies. Participants receive 20% off all products during the class. One ticket required per person. Ages 12 and up.

All tickets are non-refundable.

Classes last about 2 hours, and all materials are provided. You’re welcome to bring your favorite beverage and snacks (sparkling water, pop, beer, and wine are welcome; hard alcohol is not allowed). Vaping and smoking are never permitted in our store.

What are your candles made from?

Edgewater Candles are made from midwestern soy wax, cotton wicks, and a blend of essential oils and phthalate-free scented oils. Using only these simple materials, with no additives or dyes, our candles are vegan, clean burning, long lasting, and cruelty-free.


Can I bring empty Mason Jars back for you to reuse or recycle?

Yes! When you return our containers to us for reuse or recycling, you'll get 10% off your purchase on the day you bring them back. Our store is located at 1050 W Bryn Mawr Ave. in Chicago, and we're open 11am - 6pm every day.


How long do your candles last?

Our 12oz Mason Jar candles burn for approximately 75 hours, and our 6oz Travel Tins burn for approximately 35 hours. To get the longest burn time from your candle, allow the wax to melt across to all edges of the container before extinguishing. This will help avoid “tunneling”, which can prevent some of the wax from being used. Keeping the wick trimmed will also ensure a longer burn time.

Yes. We make our candles and all of our products by hand in Illinois.
