Open Workshop ~ Concrete Casting & Candles; 07.24.2020 1:00 – 3:00

July 24, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Last day to register is Wednesday, July 8th.

Make a modern, industrial concrete candle jar from scratch.  This workshop is an intro to concrete casting and candle making.  Each maker will leave with their own candle in a handmade concrete vessel.

Select a mold, mix up your own batch of concrete and cast into the mold. While your concrete cures, explore our scents and select a fragrance.  Once you vessel is cured and painted (optional), learn how to make your own soy candle. 

THE BOARD BAR is a DIY creative studio that provides everything in one place for makers to create high quality scented soy candles; the creative space, raw materials, tools, and step-by-step instructions. Our workshops offer a unique, interactive & social creative experience by incorporating scent exploration, hands-on candle making and as a bonus to the experience, chandlers (candle makers) will receive a metal stamping tutorial to add a personal and purposeful personal touch to their candle.

About the workshop:

Our workshops are scheduled for two hours and we ask everyone to arrive 15 minutes early.   It is important to know that due to humidity levels, ambient temperatures, certain fragrances used and actual start time, candles take 90+ minutes to set once they are poured.  After you have poured your candle, you are welcome to relax, socialize, enjoy a sip or two, mingle with new friends and old and of course, you are welcome to walk around downtown McKinney or leave.

McKinney is chock-full of boutiques, eateries, wineries & more.  If you need a recommendation, please ask a {DIY} Creatologist, we love playing tour-guide and we’ve got the downtown scoop! We will give you convenient pick up instructions for your candles during the workshop.
