The most fabulous part is that each guest will select their favorite scent from our library of fragrance oils to create two hand-poured, soy candles (12 oz and 4 oz). The bonus 4oz candle is perfect for exploring and trading scents with other makers, gift giving or your own enjoyment. (Who has ever complained of too many candles?)

This is an interactive, hands-on and social workshop.  Our team will provide instruction on how to blend fragrance oils with soy wax, attach wicks, pour melted wax along with a quick metal stamping project to add a personal and purposeful touch to your candle.

Let’s make it a date – reserve a semi private workshop!

This is a deposit for a semi-private workshop during our Drop-In & DIY | Open Session hours.  This the perfect solution if you don’t have enough people to host a private event and can’t make one of our scheduled open workshops.

This option is available for our 2-hour workshop. Our tables hold 6 – 8 people and we have usually have 2 – 3 tables available.  Our normal maximum is 18. This is not a private event; but rather a table reservation. You may have additional people at your table and in the studio. Once we receive confirmation of your reservation, we will open the workshop up to the public and send a link for your guests to register.  Registration is required in advance for ALL workshops; both private and semi private. 

We require a minimum of four (4) attendees.  There are NO refunds.  Each attendee is required to complete their own project.  Reservations are required at least 48 hours in advance.

About the workshop:

Our workshops are scheduled for two hours and we ask everyone to arrive 15 minutes early.  The first 45~ minutes is the “creative” portion of the workshop with the last 60 – 90 minutes being the “social” part of the experience.  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 and completed your metal stamping project, 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. 

How to reserve:

Reserve online by selecting an available date and time slot.  Time slots appear below in shades of white and gray once you click on a date.

IMPORTANTYou, as the organizer, are responsible for making sure you reach the minimum number required or your deposit will be forfeighted. There are no refunds.

EXTRA IMPORTANT: Be sure to read the Terms and Conditions, as this is the nitty gritty stuff that you should be aware of before registering for a workshop.

EXTRA EXTRA IMPORTANT: Please arrive 15 minutes before the start time.  This will give you time to find parking, your seat and get comfortable so that we can start the workshop on time.

Our workshops follow a tight, instructor-led schedule for your enjoyment and the safety of those around you. Additionally, soy wax typically needs at least an hour to rest and set after it is poured and this can change depending on temperatures and humidity.  A timely start is the key to taking your candles home the same day!

We start promptly at the time stated at registration. Guests arriving up to 15 minutes late will join the group at whatever point the workshop has progressed to and will be asked to make a quick scent selection. Guests arriving more than 15 minutes late will forfeit their opportunity to select a scent for their candle and their candles will not be ready to take home at the end of the workshop. As with any scheduled event/appointment, if you are running late, it is best to notify our staff or a friend, so that we are prepared.

We are a BYOB studio for grown-up fun! You are also welcome to bring in a quick & easy light snack as we will be creating and crafting for most of the time allotted for each workshop.
