If you’re looking for a way to unwind after a long week at work, look no further than the recurring Candle Making Workshop put on by Scents by The Company. The interactive artsy workshops pop up on Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons not far from our apartments in Bethesda, and they include everything you need to unleash your inner artist.
That includes, of course, expert instruction. An experienced candle-maker from Scents by the Company helms the two-hour class, showing you how to create your own candle in a step-by-step process that anyone can follow. They’ll also provide the materials, from the natural soy wax and a stovetop to melt said wax to the essential oils needed to scent your candle—you get to choose the specific fragrance! As you wait for your candle to cool, nibble on the provided refreshments and sip included libations with friends. Music and games will fill the space between creating your candle and taking home the finished product for your own living room or to give as a gift to a friend or family member!
