In-person at VPC Campus      In this class, you will learn to make soy candles with vegetable-based (soy) wax. Soy candles burn cleaner and slower, so you get less soot (cleaner air) and a candle that lasts longer. You will learn to make candles with a few supplies and a little bit of know-how from the professionals. And, as the candle maker, you can control what goes into them, so if you’re sensitive to fragrance, you can leave it out. We will cover the importance of choosing the right wax, wicks, and even how to burn your candle once it cools. You will leave with a perfectly scented candle to enjoy at home.
