    I wasn’t too sure what to expect as this was my first Dabble experience, but this class made candle making so fun and approachable! I brought my own bottle, but the teachers bring an ample supply of empty bottles to choose from. Setting was cozy and intimate (address can be hard to miss as the workshop is in a converted garage right next to First Slice). I would definitely recommend this class to anyone looking to find a new hobby or make a great gift.

    This year for Valentine's day, I was looking for an activity for my partner and I to do, and since I'm a sucker for anything cheesey (puns always intended) I was happy to find this course. Now, the issue was that I accidentally bought tickets for the wrong dates the first time around and instead gifted them to another couple we know and then bought the correct dates. Sharing the tickets was easy, and the other couple enjoyed the class.

    The day of, we had a little trouble finding the space since it is a smaller venue. For other first timers, look for the small brick building just next to First Slice Cafe on Balmoral and Ashland; there should usually be a grey van out front. Once we came in, we were greeted by the instructor, Joeseph, who warmly welcomed us into the venue. Quickly, we realized we were the only two for the class that night and had an impromptu private class. From there, Joe was nice enough to tell us about the space, and the class and we dove right into the process of making cheese.

    The content of the course itself was very accessible but also allowed for some scalability in case we wanted to get serious about making cheese later down the line. During this, there was plenty of time for questions, and we all got to talk and share some fun stories. In the end, we were able to make two variations of delicious cheese from just a half gallon of milk and some other basic ingredients that we could do all at home. To top it all off, we got to try our newly made cheeses with a lovely platter that included some tasty balsamic, fresh bread crackers, and a phenomenal boozy jam/compote that was from another class they offer (and we'll probably take in the future). Indirectly I guess I already reccomended this to my friends but I'm glad to refer this to others as well!

    PS Brief note about the space; it is a cozy space that was previously a bookstore and flower shop in a small brick venue that is roughly 7' by 18' total. Accordingly there is no restroom in the space itself, but you can easily go next door to the friendly folks at First Slice cafe next door, or pop into one of the bars on Clark that are open later.

The class itself was a mix of hands-on activity and demo, and I wish that we could have had more time hands on (although the instructor did a great job of articulating why this wasn't feasible due to time constraints). The size of the venue is very cozy, so if you are shy or claustrophobic I can imagine that being an issue. Lastly, the class ran a little short, and even so, it felt like the instructor was struggling to find ways to pad the time. I'm glad we took the class because it will give me the confidence to make macarons on my own, but there just wasn't enough content or experience to make it worth the price.

The instructor, Joe, is hysterical but very knowledgeable and makes the class feel very welcomed and involved. Tommy, the brawn behind the duo, is a nice yin to Joe's yang and at the end of the class, had jarred our jams for us to carry home so we could enjoy this boozy goodness in the dark with just a spoon and a jar of peanut butter...don't judge me.

The instructor walked through everything in such detail, showed us how inexpensive good food can be, and gave tips on what we’d need to make pasta at home. He also threw in some jokes and made a sauce from scratch to pair with the pasta we made. The price of the class paired with the BYOB aspect made it a great purchase! The space is small and intimate which we enjoyed. This particular class was on a Saturday afternoon and ended up being with two other groups that were all girls so my husband was the only make taking the class but that didn’t bother us and I’m guessing it probably differs from day to day.

    This experience greatly exceeded my expectations. Joseph is a great teacher, providing step-by-step instructions, interesting stories, and encouragement all along the way. The space is small, cosy and surprisingly conducive to cooking as a community activity. There were 8 people in the Basic Pasta class my husband and I took. We learned the basics and each person made their own serving of fettuccine -- from mixing to rolling, cutting, cooking and eating! There was a pot of delicious red sauce waiting for us. In addition to a new skill, we walked away with two new friends. And, we're already planning what Ml class we'll take next!

Good company and conversation while we steamed the Tamales. Instructor was very personable and openly shared trials and tribulations of living a Maker/Doer life. The Space is tiny, they are not kidding, but lovely. Free parking on Ashland. Minor schedule adjustment well communicated by email and text. And I appreciated that we were asked to wash hands and use gloves for sanitation. Well done you guys! I would def do this again!

The instructor is personable and makes the class fun, and making the pasta turned out to be a lot easier than expected. You get to eat the pasta at the end of the class and they provide a delicious sauce to put on top as well. Highly recommended! I'm going to look into taking another class at this same venue!

    Great, intimate class. The location is cozy thus the name of them - mL. The classes hold about 6 people so you will absolutely get to interact, ask questions and do some hands on learning! It is byob and although they don't sell any wine, there is a shop about a block away. They have classes, bottle openers and a fridge on hand so just need to bring the vino. Tom was enthusiastic and passionate and made for a great host. Even though there is street parking you may want to use spothero (we found a spot not too far for only $5 for 3 hours) or there's a lot next door but you'll have to try the Italian restaurant beforehand so they validate your parking. Overall great class and learned a lot!

    This was a great class. I'd never attempted candle-making before, and now I feel like I could do so confidently. I appreciated all of the tips and candid feedback on both instructors' experiences over the years, which will lead to being a few steps ahead if I do end up making my own. mL's space was fantastic - very intimate, and all of the candles made it warm and welcoming. Finally, I'm an introvert and generally get anxious about these things, but the instructors made me feel very comfortable.

I haven't dabbled in a little while, and now I am reminded why I need to do it regularly. I learn new skills and try things I never otherwise would have. The instructor for this session was SO welcoming! He was also super funny and really knowledgeable about the entire jam making process. We asked about one million questions and he was able to answer them all in a really accessible way that made sense to the uninitiated. I will DEFINITELY be taking more classes by this instructor.

    This class was entertaining and interesting. The space is really small and very sweet. Given the limited space, your actual involvement in making the jam is limited. However, the jam we made was delicious. This is more of an educational class and not so much an interactive (either with other participants or the process itself). The instructor does lots of talking, so if you like to sit and listen and learn, this would be a great class for you. If you like to learn by doing or if you want a class where social action is encouraged, this is not the likely the class for you.

    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.

    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.

Paired Wine (where the class was held) was adorable and a great setting for the pasta making. The instructor was entertaining and really knew what he was doing. It was a small class size, which was also nice. We were able to start from scratch, make our dough, make our pasta into shapes, cook AND eat our pasta. It really was the full experience, and I can't wait to go again. They also made flatbread pizza for us to snack on during the class, which was delicious. I can't recommend this class enough!

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.

Since the class is held in a wine store, you can easily purchase a bottle of your choosing, but the $50 ticket price seemed a little steep for the two hours.
    Separately, I noticed that the store runs a bunch of promotions e.g., 10% off champagne on Sundays (bring your own OJ :) that sound like something I'd go back for!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

I also loved taking the class at Paired Wine Shop -- everyone was so friendly, they offered snacks/pizzas to the class, we had wine and the ambiance was great!
