ABOUT THIS EVENT
Event Category

Arts & DIY

Event Overview

A class that offers not only candle making but also the art of upcycling glass containers as the vessel for the candle! Choose from one of our upcycled wine bottles or bring your favorite glass or jar from home and we will show you how easy it is to repurpose it into something amazing. This is the perfect girls' night, date night or team building experience!


We will be covering introductory glass cutting and hand pouring of each candle with soy wax. Choose from different cocktail scents such as Barrel Aged Bourbon, Old Fashioned Cocktail or Whiskey & Sweet Tobacco! Have fun learning something new and feel great that you will be taking home a premium soy candle without that high-end price tag.


HOW TO FIND US! Enter and/or park on Carpenter (parking is safe and free) and then walk in where it says "ENTRANCE TO COURTYARD" off Carpenter. You will see a big loading dock area, go up the wood stairs and there is a glass door on the RIGHT corner- you will enter there. Code for the door is *0105 and come up to the 4th floor, hang a right and walk all the way down. You will smell candles...follow your nose! ;)

What to Bring

OPTIONAL: A wine bottle if you have a favorite or empty one laying around. We do provide them as well. Feel free to BYOB. We have wine glasses!

Prerequisites

Anyone is welcome, no experience is necessary.

What's Provided

Glass wine bottles for filling and all necessary ingredients/tools.

    The DIY Soy Candles, Wine Bottle Cutting class was a great experience! It was a fun, interactive event in a relaxed environment where you learned about the tools and process behind creating a soy candle in a glass bottle, and got to leave with your own creation! Good time!

    We had the most incredible experience at Chicago Candle Co with owners Sarah and Fernando. They took the time to explain the candle making process, demonstrate the art of wine bottle cutting, and help us create our own unique candles. The class was great, but the instructors are wonderful! They are so passionate for their small business and really wanted us to have a fun time (which we did!). Highly recommend this class and checking out their product online. We left the experience with candles and some great new friends.

    DIY Soy candles and wine bottle cutting was a blast we went through step by step from picking and cutting a wine glass to making a candle. The owners/teachers were so friendly and helpful throughout the whole process. We had so much fun!

    Really enjoyed this class!! Learned so much about cutting different types of bottles, making scents and dying wax. Our instructors from Chicago Candle Co were amazing, and so thorough and patient! I was so impressed with the candles we took home. And I'm also looking forward to supporting this local Chicago company now that I know about them :)

    The wine bottle cutting and candle making class was fantastic! You can tell the Valarde's enjoy working together. I appreciated all the insights they were able to share as we learned to prepare the bottles and make some good smelling candles. Thanks much for a nice evening with a culminating view of the Chicago skyline as our candles set.

    My first dabble experience and it was great. The teacher was really laid back- the vibe was more akin to hanging out a friend's place than attending a class. The teacher explained each step, why it needed to happen, and how to go about procuring supplies / materials if the user wanted to repeat the process at home, as well as tips and tricks that the instructor had discovered in his time candle making. Venue was great, instructor was great, material was great, experience was great. Would enthusiastically recommend.

    I got this class for my sister's birthday and it was great! We learned a lot about making candles and are thrilled with the end product. The instructor gave us tips for doing this at home, and also shared why they do things a certain way over other methods. We were both shocked at how easy it was to break the glass. I've already recommended this class to two other people.

    I had previously purchased one of Chicago Candle Co.'s candles at Koval Distillary, so was super-excited to see that they had a class on dabble. Fernando and Sara were wonderful instructors...you see firsthand the level of care they put into their products. From Fernando teaching us how to expertly cut our glass to Sarah showing us how to perfectly pour our candles, this class did not disappoint! Perfect date night for my husband and I...and our candles look beautiful/smell amazing in our home!

    I had an awesome time! My fiancé has been trying his hand at wine bottle cutting, but couldn’t figure out why weren’t coming out clean. Well, thanks to this class, now I know and we are going to take what I learned and put into action.

    The scents you get to choose from are an absolute dream! I couldn’t decide if I wanted to smell it or eat it.

    The teacher was patient, understanding, and attentive - especially because I was part of a smaller class size.

    Definitely take this class. It’s fun, informative/practical, and the studio smells amazing.

We enjoyed learning about the cutting technique, how we weigh and scent the candles, as well as getting to see a unique view of the city from the studio. It was fun getting to choose a bottle from the collection, as well as seeing others in our class cut bottles that they brought. My mint julep candle is my new favorite scent!
