About Your Host

All of our teachers are formally trained artists, and bring this perspective into their teaching- we encourage students to experiment, express themselves, and have fun!

What we'll do

Kick your expensive candle-hoarding habit and learn to make your own! In our soy candle-making class, you will learn the basics of the candle making process from melting wax properly to customizing your very own scents from essential oils! Hyunny from Lighten Up Shoppe is bringing an array of all natural fruity, earthy, and floral scents for you to work with in class. Everyone will go home with a delightful variety of three 6 oz. candles in reusable lidded glass jars. Hyunny will cover the ins and outs of mixing scents with the wax, how to keep your wick straight, and where to source materials. With the confidence and knowledge, you gain from this workshop, you’ll be able to make your very own candles at home!  This 2.5 hour workshop includes all materials, snacks, beverages, and a 20% discount off of everything in our shop! Lighten Up Shoppe was founded by sisters Hyunny and Joy, in the sunny northern California city of San Mateo. Lighten Up Shoppe was created out of Joy's love for candles and Hyunny's obsession with crafting. The warmth and glow of a candle can transform any room into a sanctuary. After a long day, take a moment to breathe, light a candle, and lighten up! Lighten Up Shoppe candles are made with soy wax and wood wicks. They are whimsically scented with a blend of essential oils and fragrance oils. They are fragrant, but not overwhelming or overpowering.
