Candle crafting workshop planned for Pittsburgh

December 30, 2018 by  

Scented candles can add a pleasant touch to almost any room, and they are popular pieces of decor. The Candle Lab in Pittsburgh will be offering the public a chance to custom create their own candles that will have a fragrance they select for themselves.

All of the participants in the workshop, which will be facilitated by Tess Kamban, will start off by pouring a candle of their own. They will be invited to select their favorite scent form the over 120 that will be available, and a “scent stylist” will then offer advice about which ones will blend together to create a pleasant smell.

After the candle ingredients have been chosen, it will be time for the participants to design their label. They will then combine the components, with the end result being an 8 ounce candle they can take home with them. Printed sheets of instructions can be prepared by local stationery printers for this sort of function, and can be placed on each of the tables where the attendees are working.

Guests at the workshop are welcome to bring along a bottle of wine, beer or other beverage to enjoy while they work. As the candles cool, the group will be invited to create a watercolor painting of dragonflies, following the steps provided. Both activities are covered in the $45 ticket price.

The Candle Lab will be offering this workshop on January 17. It is located at 4409 Butler Street.
