Candle Making Classes

Regular price $70.00

Join us at our production studio in Evanston and we’ll walk you through the candle making process - from choosing a scent, blending the fragrance and wax, to hand pouring the candle. You'll select your own scent and you can even choose to blend multiple scents together. During the class you'll also get a behind the scenes look at the workings of a small business. At the end of the evening, you’ll have two travel tins of your own creation to take home!

Classes last about 2 hours, and all materials are provided. You’re welcome to bring your favorite beverage. Class participants must be 18 or older to attend.

1900 Greenwood St #8 • Evanston IL, 60201

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 clean burning and long lasting.


Can the Mason Jar be reused?

Yes. Our Mason Jars can be reused once the wax has been spent and the jar has been cleaned.


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.


Are your products made in the US?

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