Candle Making @ Crushed

  • Crushed 967 Garnet Avenue (map)

Description

Create a candle of your very own out of a repurposed wine bottle, all-natural soy wax and your own creativity! At this “open house” style workshop-- you’ll explore symbols, scent and color to curate your personal aesthetic. Come any time between 6:30-8:30pm, just make sure you do your wax pour at least 30 minutes before you plan to leave!

Upon arriving, you’ll select a candle container-- all of the containers were once wine bottles that were cleaned, cut and decorated: all cuts of glass are unique, making no two containers the same. 

You’ll also receive a curator card-- this will help you organize your thoughts as you navigate through the four stations. INTENT, SCENT & DECOR can be visited at any pace and any order, the POUR station must be visited only after you’ve decided on your SCENT and filled your candle container with INTENT.

SCENT: Put your olfactory sense to the test. Sniff out a single scent you love, or combine two for a more personal scent aesthetic.

DECOR: Peruse our stamps to create a label for your candle, with planetary and zodiac symbols or other designs.

INTENT: Choose ordinary, everyday objects to rest at the bottom of your candle, the “bunt” of the wine bottle. Explore the reading materials, oracle cards and objects provided to ground your candle with intention.

POUR: Once you’ve settled on a scent profile and filled your container with intention, it’s time create your candle! Receive wax in a mason jar, add color first, then scent, mindfully mix, then pour it all into your wine bottle base, and voila! Instant ambiance, created by you.

Please note: the POUR station can only accommodate 6-7 people at a time, and wax takes about 20-30 minutes to melt! You must plan to visit the Pour Station at least 30 minutes before you plan to leave. Last wax pour happens at 8:30pm.
