Stephanie S.Drink Wine - Make Candles
I went to this Dabble class with two girlfriends from college and we had a blast! The title led me to believe that they would provide a glass of wine with the class but they did not. They do have a great selection to purchase while you are there though.
The owners were teaching the class and they were a blast. We learned about adding color and scents to the candles but unfortunately, we were not able to do that in this class. I think if we could have had that option (since the candles we made were unscented) that would have made it the perfect class!
While our candles were cooling, we were able to sit on their patio with our wine. We could have stayed there all day.
Maria R.Drink Wine - Make Candles
I really enjoyed this class. It was very informative and fun. I'm a med student so it was great to do something totally different. I would highly recommend this class. It's fun and they make it simple. The finished product is something you can use and definitely a conversation starter.
Shareef S.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Instructors were great. Nice time learning.
Lindsey W.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Went with friends back in December and loved it so much that I went back again with a friend and our moms! Cozy, intimate setting where you learn about waxes, drink wine, and make a candle to take home- it was great!
Kaitlin C.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Myself and a friend took this class and had SO much fun! Not only were they extremely knowledgeable about their vast wine selection, but the class was intimate and allowed us to be playful when making our candles. The ambiance was comfortable, with homemade candles burning all around and Norah Jones playing in the background. They also made us a yummy pizza while we waited out the rain! I would definitely recommend!
Vidhi G.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Was a fun night but not really hands on with the class. Thought it was ok. wouldnt do it again
Hunter M.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Fun class but I wish there would have been an option to add color/scent to the wax. My candle turned out looking great but I wish it smelled great too.
Tania S.Drink Wine - Make Candles
This class is a fun experience in a nice environment. However, it is pricey for what you get: $10 credit towards any bottle of wine in the shop and a candle that you make. You will most likely end up spending more money on a bottle of wine once you get to the class. The class is not worth $50+ in my opinion. That being said, the instructors were very enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
Priscilla R.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Fun class in a fun environment. Discount on wine during the class was a nice benefit too. I recommend this class.
Barbara B.Drink Wine - Make Candles
This class was wonderful! I thought it was great that the teachers teach you how to make the candles but in such a way that you can make them yourself at home. They even tell you where to go to buy the tools if you want to make more by yourself. And the wine was perfect :)
Jason R.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Cristin H.Drink Wine - Make Candles
What a fun class! We did it for a girls' night and had a blast! The teachers were fantastic! Highly recommend. :)
Emily D.Drink Wine - Make Candles
This class was such a treat - and perfect for a winter evening. Joe & Tommy that own the shop and teach the class were such wonderful hosts and had a great laid-back teaching style. My friend and I had so much fun and drank great wine! :)
Joanne T.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Total blast! I highly recommend, very charming wine store in the heart of one of my favorite hoods. The boys running the class were a blast and very nice, informative and funny. Great Friday night with the girls :)
Nicole B.Drink Wine - Make Candles
What a fun class! I went with a group of friends. We had a great time sipping on wine while making our wine bottles and learning how to make candles.
Lourdes A.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Loved the class! It was fun & informative. I appreciated that the instructors had already done a lot of research on the best ways to do it yourself (including what products to use). I do wish that we had an option to use scents in our candles (I would have even paid a little extra). Overall a fun evening in Boystown.
Erin S.Drink Wine - Make Candles
I had so much fun! The teachers were great. I would definitely take again or recommend to anyone.
Laura F.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Such a fun and unique class! Intimate setting in a very cute wine shop. The owners couldn't have been nicer. Highly recommend this class!
Emily C.Drink Wine - Make Candles
I enjoyed this class. The instructor was warm, welcoming, and very knowledgeable. The candle came out nicely and was easy to create with support from the instructor. Good times!
Julia G.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Great class. I really enjoyed learning how to cut bottles and the shop is warm, inciting and beautiful. I loved being able to take home a finished project in one session.
Michele N.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Great environment and the teachers are friendly and welcoming. The insturctions were easy to follow instructions and it's great to take a candle home at the end.
Courtney B.Drink Wine - Make Candles
My friends and I attended this class on a Saturday afternoon and it was so much fun! The instructors were so great and friendly. The class was knowledgeable and easy enough to also drink wine while making a candle. It was the perfect activity for a group of friends looking for something out of their usual routine!
Jamie H.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Very fun time, atmosphere in the store was relaxed and welcoming. Would suggest to friends!
Martha H.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Had so much fun and learned a lot. Very cute shop too. Would recommend this class
Julie Z.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Fantastic experience! I'll definitely be back and take other classes!
Nikki L.Drink Wine - Make Candles
My girlfriends and I had an awesome time at the class. We learned so much and we're surpsrised on how easy it was to split the bottles. We have already bought some of the supplies to make candles at home and plan to have a candle making party. I highly recommend taking this class!
Chelsea H.Drink Wine - Make Candles
This course was great! I didn't think it was going to be so easy and straightforward to cut a wine bottle AND make a candle out of it but with about $60 worth of material from Amazon, I now have a little setup in my home to do it as much as possible! It's a great gift idea too - use that bottle of wine you shared at your first date or from your wedding and make awesome keepsakes. The Paired shop is adorable and you get $10 toward a bottle of wine to take home too. Recommend!
Ashley H.Drink Wine - Make Candles
We had a relaxing and fun Friday night making candles and sipping wine. The instructors were true experts and were friendly and helpful! The finished product turned out great and I can't wait to make more at home now that I know what supplies to get!
Katie C.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Incredible Class! Joseph & Tommy are AMAZING and HILARIOUS! Such a fun night of delicious wine and learning how to score glass and make candles! Highly recommend this class!
Teresa B.Drink Wine - Make Candles
This was a lot of fun, and I learned quite a bit about the process. The instructors were very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. In the end, I went home with an awesome candle.
Whitney W.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Enjoyable experience! The credit towards a bottle of wine to drink or take home was definitely awesome. A little disappointed that we were unable to add scents or colors to our candles. Its one of the higher priced classes, and I was expecting the store to be closed during our event. It was a small space, and a little bit frustrating that customers kept walking in and disrupting our time. That being said, we walked away with a really great product, learned how we could make the candles at home, and they have a really great selection of wines!
Rachel F.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Had a great time at this class! Very fun and informative! Love the teachers, great way to spend an evening! Will definitely be back! Thanks Joe and Tommy!
Lisa C.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Such a wonderful class! The candle you take home at the end of the night is beautiful. The owners of the shop also give you a comprehensive lesson in the bottle-cutting/candle making basics. I especially appreciate they put up class notes and supply links on their website so you can reference it after class. That way you can enjoy your wine and not have to worry if you forget a particular detail of the process! Of the dabble classes I've taken so far, this was the best one to take with friends. Plenty of pauses in the actual crafting to talk and drink your wine. Wine selection in the shop was diverse and very reasonably priced.
Brandy J.Drink Wine - Make Candles
I took my mother to this class while she was visiting, and we both loved it! The wine was amazing, snacks provided, and the teachers were fun. I would definitely take another class here!
Lauren F.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Loved the class- the two instructors were great and very fun. I love my candle and I learned a lot about making candles in the process.
Christine S.Drink Wine - Make Candles
I encouraged 4 of my girl friends to drink wine, make candles with me - it didn't take much arm twisting.
This was a one time thing, making home made candles isn't for me - but - it was a blast.
Bring an empty bottle or two - or choose one of the empties they have sitting around the store.
They guys are so super nice...and funny...and amazing.
Kate H.Drink Wine - Make Candles
LOVED making candles with Paired Wine! Fun instructors and group of people to create these with!
Bradley L.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Awesome class! I took my team of 10 to this event, and everyone had a great time. The class was fun and informative without being too much, and the instructor kept it light. The wine was great too!
Jasmine N.Drink Wine - Make Candles
What a lovely way to spend an afternoon! The guys at Paired are so friendly and great instructors. I not only had a great time, I learned everything I need to know to make more candles ( and other cool wine bottle "crafts") at home!
Favian R.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Such an awesome class! The class size and location are very intimate. The instructors are some of the best I've encountered on Dabble, as well. If you're looking for a fun but intimate event, this is it.
Lindsay C.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Excellent class and experience overall. These guys do an awesome job, they make a great team. Love the atmosphere and we will doing more classes in the future!
Tonks L.Drink Wine - Make Candles
A bunch of people canceled--their loss! Me and my partner in crime had the class to ourselves and learned not only how to make candles, but were shown how to make a bunch of other stuff. We enjoyed a bottle of delicious wine during some wait time, the guys teaching the class were really friendly, and my guest (visiting from another country) thought it was fantastic fun.
Claire O.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Great time, geared towards making sure you can take the skills you learn home and use them on your own.
Elizabeth H.Drink Wine - Make Candles
What a great way to spend a couple of hours. It was fun, interesting, and informative. Loved that they went over the different ways you could make a candle from a wine bottle and gave us tips and best practices that they learned along the way. It was so much fun getting to do it ourselves all while enjoying a glass (or two...) of wine! Highly recommend not only this class, but Paired Wine Co in general.
Daniel J.Drink Wine - Make Candles
I went with a date and could not have had a better experience. We were able to talk, make a candle, and hear some amazing stories. Joe and Tommy run an amazing shop and Joe was a great teacher. We are planning on doing a planting class they hope to start soon because of this experience.
Jami S.Drink Wine - Make Candles
This class was fantastic, and Joseph couldn't have been a better instructor. My Mom and I had so much fun & would highly recommend to anyone! I can't wait for your outdoor patio to open for the summer!
Susan R.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Our group was supposed to take a different class which was cancelled due to unforseen circumstances. Dabble and Joseph at Paired wine were able to accommodate us in this fun class. The wine shop is very nice space and Joseph and Tommy are knowledgeable and helpful. He explained the process well and we all had a great time making our candles.
Annie P.Drink Wine - Make Candles
We absolutely loved this class. The atmosphere was excellent and inviting. The instructors were great teachers and engaged the audience with patience and contagious friendliness and excitement. We both feel like we learned enough to repeat the process at home - which is awesome and unexpected. Paired Wine Co. is an excellent venue, too. The $10 wine discount was a lovely addition, too, and helped us a try a wine outside of our normal price range. All in all, we will (and already have) recommend this class to everyone. It's great for a date night, but would also be a fun night out of a group of friends.
Maria C.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Loved this class! Joe and his staff where great! They took the time to answer all of our questions, help guide us on what works best and made us see all the wonderful possibilities with wine bottles. This is definitely a class worth taking!
Nicole G.Drink Wine - Make Candles
This was a very fun, relaxed class. The instructors and wine shop owners were great, very helpful, and made the class amazing! You should definitely try this class out, I am loving my wine bottle candle and I cannot wait to try it at home.
Kevin D.Drink Wine - Make Candles
The class was very fun, and the store is a great atmosphere! We've tried projects like this in the past and failed, so it was great to have a hands on experience that walked us through the best ways to cut and clean the bottles, preparing the wax, and talking about other options like scent, color etc. Joseph was a great teacher, very fun and engaging, and very patient when answering all of our many many questions. Plus, it's BYOB and Joseph/Tommy provided some delicious flatbreads to munch on during our learning. You cannot go wrong with this class.
Tatiana C.Drink Wine - Make Candles
My friend and I had a great time. Paired is a lovely shop and the owners were charming and fun. We were in total, a group of 6 women. Joe was super informative and made the process of making our wine bottle candles fun. We were excited to learn about where to buy materials and look forward to making our own candles at home. Well worth the $40 (you get a $10 credit towards any bottle in the shop). Light snacks and good times make this a worthwhile buy.
Jennifer B.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Lots of fun! everyone got to take home a custom wine bottle candle. Also got a lot of really interesting information about how to make candles yourself at home cheap!!!!
Tarah D.Drink Wine - Make Candles
We had a great time making candles with Joe (and Tommy). They were very informative while still allowing for a good degree of fun. Everyone left with a beautiful finished product and we were all inspired to make more crafts and candles from wine bottles!
Stacey R.Drink Wine - Make Candles
We had a lot of laughs and fun as a family group
Laurel R.Drink Wine - Make Candles
This class was comprehensive and fun! It's for the person interested in making just one candle all the way to someone who wants to start a business. Our instructor Joe was excellent!
Kelly G.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Really fun atmosphere (cute wine shop) with a great instructor(s). Fun way to spend a Friday evening with the girls!
Derek S.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Great class!! We had a lot of fun! I would highly recommend taking this class. Thank You.
Jen T.Drink Wine - Make Candles
I LOVED this class! The teacher was wonderful, the wine shop is adorable, and it was tons of fun hanging out drinking wine while learning how to turn a wine bottle into a candle! I cannot wait to go back for another class!
Rene L.Drink Wine - Make Candles
This class was a lot of fun. I recommend coming with a friend but going alone is also an option. You get a bottle of wine valued at $15 and you can also do individual glass tastings. It's a cute shop and a fun afternoon. You get to cut the bottle but Joe really takes care of the rest. While I'm not an expert on candle making now, I did have a really enjoyable afternoon.
Erica S.Drink Wine - Make Candles
This was my first experience with making candles and I had a great time.
Lynn Y.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Fabulous class! Highly recommend.
Amy K.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Great class and a ton of fun! Very informative and I love that we were able to walk out with our candle in hand. Instructor is friendly and engaging and has answers to all of your questions. The $15 credit for a bottle of wine is a great deal, too, as there is tons to choose from in that price range in the store.
Lindsay H.Drink Wine - Make Candles
This was class was a lot of fun! The venue is awesome and we had a lot of fun drinking wine and learning about candles, leaving with a cool candle also. The class was really great and I will definitely be back!
Natalie M.Drink Wine - Make Candles
This was such a great class and a wonderful night! The owners of Paired Wine Co. are so friendly and so welcoming!! It's a beautiful atmosphere, with a laid back and, overall, good vibe. We learned a lot, while laughing and eating delicious light appetizers. This was a Valentine's Day date for my fiancé and we had such a nice time! It is definitely not just opened to couples, though! There were groups of friends, mom/daughter dates, etc. We have been recommending it to everyone and definitely will continue to! Thank you so much for offering this class at such a great price!
Amber B.Drink Wine - Make Candles
We had s wonderful time taking class with Joe and Tommy as our teachers. They were fun, extremely knowledgeable and made it a great experience. Our candles turned out great. Their wine shop is incredible and I'll be sure to go back!
Karen W.Drink Wine - Make Candles
What a fun class! We started by selecting the wine we wanted to drink and had the option of finishing that bottle and using it for our candle, or choosing one of the already empty bottles provided. Veggie flatbread pizza was provided (not the greatest) as a light snack. While we drank, Joe and Tommy explained the process, as well as other items that could be made from empties.
We proceeded to score and break our bottles in preparation for the candle making. There was chatting and drinking in between. At the end we all had lovely candles, and some of us had new friends with whom to take on the next Dabble adventure.
Ryann M.Drink Wine - Make Candles
The pace, size, and information provided was on point, and Joe and Tommy were helpful, knowledgeable and fun! I went with a large group, but if you're worried about going by yourself, don't be!
Stephanie K.Drink Wine - Make Candles
Had such a great afternoon at Paired - drank great wine and learned how accessible making candles at home can be! Looking forward to making my own and visiting Paired again in the future!
Erin C.Drink Wine - Make Candles
The candle making class was so much fun! My friends and I had a great time and Joe and Tommy at Paired Wine were amazing! Thank you!!!
