Workshops are suitable for ages 10+. While we'd love to host younger kids, the supplies required for candlemaking (fragrance oils and hot wax) aren't suitable for a younger crowd. All participants 10-18 years old must be accompanied by an adult at all times - no unaccompanied minors may be left in the store.

THE CANDLE BAR ($40 PER PERSON)

Grab a seat at The Candle Bar and we will walk you through the steps to create your own 7 oz. candle (40-45 hours burn time) from start to finish using our proprietary coconut soy wax blend and premium fragrance oils. Choose from and blend multiple fragrances to make your own custom scent, choose a color for your wax, and then finish off your candle with a custom label!

 The Candle Bar is not a class. If you're looking for an in depth candlemaking class, please book a class.

Depending on the number of participants, candlemaking classes typically last 1 hour and your candle will take an additional 1 hour to solidify. You may take your candle no earlier than 2 hours after your class start time. For example, if your class starts at 12PM, your candle will be ready no earlier than 2 PM. There are no exceptions to pick up times. If you're not able to wait for your candles to solidify, you can come pick up your candles another day or arrange with our associate to have the candles shipped to you (additional charges apply.) There is plenty to do while your candle solidifies, including shopping. If you'd like to take home your candle same day please be sure to come back before we close. You may also come back another day to pick up your candle if you prefer. If you would like us to ship your candle to you, please let us know and we'll provide a shipping quote depending on the size of your group and where the shipment is going.

As a courtesy to all our guests, we start our classes promptly. Out of respect to our staff and other class participants, we ask that you arrive on time. No late seatings. If you arrive late to your appointment our instructors may require that you join the next candlemaking class/candle bar space permitting.

Pets are not allowed in the studio. We love pets but fragrances and hot wax are not suitable for pets.

None of our locations have public restrooms in store. If you need to use the bathroom while visiting our Torrance or Brea stores, the mall has multiple public bathrooms that you may use. If you are visiting our Pasadena store, the nearest public bathrooms are at The Paseo located at 280 E Colorado Blvd, Pasadena, CA 91101.

Due to the popularity of our candlemaking classes and candle bar, we highly recommend that you make a reservation to secure your spot for your desired date and time. Our classes and candle bar appointments frequently sell out. Walk-in guests for the candle bar will be accommodated on a first come, first served basis and only if there are open spots available. Walk-ins for candlemaking classes will be accomodated on a first come, first served basis and only if there is a scheduled candlemaking class with open spots available.

Due to the limited size of our workshop space, we do not allow anyone to watch or participate in the class without a ticket (the only exception to this rule is for an adult accompanying a minor). 



While we do provide aprons for participants, we recommend that you leave Chanel and Gucci at home—the fragrance oils that we use can be hard on fabrics!

We do not allow the addition of anything potentially flammable to our candles. The only item that you may add to your candle are the gemstones that we offer for $2 per stone. You may not bring your own jars, essential oils, fragrance oils, wicks, crystals or dried flowers to our workshops.

We only allow food and non-alcoholic drinks in our private parties.

Our workshop set up is different at each location. If you have any special requests or needs, please indicate so in the special requests/notes section upon checkout and we will do our best to accommodate.
