Candle Making Workshop

July 15, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Adventures in yoga pants: candle magic edition. Enjoy a glass of wine from Ocean Beach’s Gianni Buonomo Vintners as you curate a candle of your very own out of repurposed wine bottles and all-natural soy wax. Explore stamp making, scent and color to create your personal aesthetic. Dress comfy: Wear your athleisure, or whatever makes you feel ready to connect with a community of kindred crafting spirits.

Your ticket includes a glass of award-winning GBV wine and your very own self-curated candle.

Upon arriving, you’ll receive a drink ticket, candle container, and recipe card. Use the drink ticket to order from the bartender, and the card to organize your scent profile at the appropriate station. Around 11:30, we’ll round up for an introduction.

In any order, visit:
Scent station: Put your olfactory sense to the test. Sniff out a single scent you love, or combine two for a more personal scent aesthetic.
Art station: Peruse our stamps to create an all-you label, with planetary and zodiac symbols or other designs.
Intention station: Sand, for grounding? Beads, for whimsy? Choose ordinary, everyday objects to rest at the bottom of your candle, the “bunt” of the wine bottle.

Then, AT LEAST 30 minutes before you plan to leave, visit:
Pour station: We’ll help you add your chosen scent and color to your wax. Pour it all into your wine bottle base, and voila! Instant ambiance, created by you.

We’ll also have a selection of our AF Candle Co. products available for purchase, complete with gift bags!
