Candlefish offers candle-making classes at PCM…
Fans of Candlefish at Ponce City Market can now go behind the scenes of their favorite candle store and learn how to make their own scented, soy-wax lights.
From choosing a scent to pouring two 9-ounce candles, participants ages 15 and older will complete every step of the process under the guidance of a Candlefish chandler, or candle-maker. The completed products will cure overnight and can be retrieved the next day. The classes were introduced in January and are now a regular offering at the store. “Candle-making classes are an important part of the Candlefish experience and our mission as a store,” says Jordan Napper, director of marketing and development. “Our workshops highlight the art of candle-making and tell the story of our brand in a modern, fun way.” The “fun” also comes from attendees bringing their favorite bottles of wine; glassware is provided.
Priced from $45, workshops typically last 90 minutes and are offered on various days at noon, 3 p.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Private group classes also are available by appointment or additional content. Participants receive 15 percent off all in-store merchandise.
