A workshop focused on the art of candle making with an emphasis on fragrance creation. Master the notion of Top-Middle-Base notes and learn the language that defines this industry's vocabulary and informs their palette. Amy will demonstrate and discuss techniques to create beautiful candles using simple and natural ingredients including plant-based wax and phthalate-free essential oil infused fragrances.
Each student will create 2 botanical wax candles that embody seasonal scent-notes. Think Vetiver, Sandalwood, Jasmine & Orange Blossom. Hand-poured into a gift-worthy gold tin.
Ages: 16 years and up - no experience necessary!
Materials: All supplies are included.
Instructor: Amy Misso of Linwood Candle Co.
Amy founded Linwood Candle Co. as an homage to the meditative approach to the small-batch process. Melting the wax, mixing the correct amount of essential oils and slowly hand-pouring each individual candle demands intentionality and mindfulness. Amy has a background in Architecture & Environmental Design, which can be seen woven into the fabric of her business: architecturally inspired packaging with a hint of vintage charm.
