Event Overview

Join local candle-maker Milton + Margie's for a candle and floral design workshop at Indigo & Violet Studio.


Transform a vintage mug into an adorable floral-scented soy candle! You'll learn everything you need to know to make soy candles, including the scent-creation process. To complement your floral arrangement, we'll teach you how to create your own dreamy floral fragrance from a blend of soy-based oils. While our candles are hardening we'll create fresh floral arrangements and you'll learn the basics of floral design, color, texture, and composition - plus tips on how to keep your flowers fresher longer!


All supplies are provided, including soy wax, fragrance oils, and vintage mugs (feel free to bring your own vintage piece if you have something you love!) No experience required - we will provide hands-on instruction and fragrance suggestions. Event is BYOB if you'd like to get the creative juices flowing - glasses + corkscrews will be provided.

What's included with every ticket (hint - it's everything but the wine:)


  • All materials for (1) 16 oz. soy candle 

  • Bring your own container(s) for the 16 oz. of wax or use one from Milton & Margie's at no additional cost. (For reference, 16 oz. of wax will fill a container approximately the size of a standard can of veggies.)

  • Bring a bottle of wine or bubbly to enjoy during this BYOB workshop

    I LOVED this class! Jess and Leigh were so knowledgeable, creative and energetic. The space was beautiful and inspiring. Everything was so fun. I'll definitely be back for another class at Indigo & Violet Studio!
