Custom Candle Making Class

Choose your own scents to make unique DIY candles

75 mins - 3 hours Class size 1 to 6 (public classes), 12 to 32

label $40 - $95 (price varies across dates)

Indulge in the creative activity of scented candle making, where you will develop your own scent blend and create a one-of-a-kind, truly custom candle you can enjoy in your home or give as a unique gift to someone special.

This hands-on workshop is the ultimate exploration of scent preferences and personalization. You will first peruse a wall of over 80 scented candles to discover which scents appeal to you. Then, with guidance from Moonshot Studio's friendly and knowledgeable staff, you will blend fragrance oils drop by drop to create a completely unique mix for your candle. Create a candle that smells like an evergreen forest, a day at the beach, the perfect spa, a heavenly kitchen or a type of fruit that only grows in your imagination!

Moonshot Studio candles are made with a soy wax blend, cotton wicks and premium fragrance oils to be long-lasting, clean burning and true to scent. All workshop participants select their own 8.5 oz. jar from among six color options: frosted white, dark blue, teal, amber, black and green.

Perfect for team building activities and company offsites, birthday parties, bridal showers and other group socializing events, this candle making class is a chance to unplug, play, and embrace your sense of smell.

Candles require 90 minutes of cooling, finishing touches and packaging before they can leave the shop. Students can arrange pickups with the teacher or come back to the shop a little later in the day after enjoying a stroll among the stores and restaurants in Noe Valley’s charming business district.

Also, the teacher and other staff may take pictures during the event for use for future promotions. Classes and individuals are welcome to opt out – simply inform us if you prefer not to be photographed.

Please Note:
For the private class, you and your party will rent out the whole Moonshot Studio shop and private event space. If you would like to opt instead for a semi-private event at $65 per person, in which the shop will still be open and has a minimum guest requirement of 8 and a max of 16, please inquire using the Contact button located below next to the teacher's bio. Or, enjoy a small-group experience (1-6 people) at our pre-scheduled public dates.

Loved the experience! Great working with out teacher, Teresa! She was knowledgeable on everything and took her time. I learned a lot about candles and would definitely do it again. Ps I texted her to let her know I was running 10 mins late and she was totally cool about it.

Super fun and interactive! The studio was cute and clean. Staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. I love the scent blend I created- SO many options to choose from. There is a small parking lot across the street and plenty of street parking. 10/10 recommend.

This was my first ClassBento and it was a great time for me and my youth (15 yr old). Moonshot Studio is located in downtown Noe Valley so parking may be a little tricky but we just parked a little further away and walked in. Our instructor (and owner) was Teresa and she was so sweet, enthusiastic, and informative. It look about 1.5 hours for us to complete our candle-making activity, which is a bit longer than the class was supposed to take but Teresa didn't rush us at all. Once completed, Teresa asked us to either return in 90 mins to pick up the finished candles or come back another day (we chose the former). It was a fun activity and I would recommend this class for anyone looking to make their own candles or a personalized gift for someone special!
