A gift certificate for a DIY class is an excellent, unique gift idea! Your gift recipient can attend any Beeswax Candle Making Class of their choice on Lindsay's online calendar, and take home 2-3 candles (about 8 oz. of white &/or yellow beeswax), using the silicone mold (e.g. flower, heart) &/or decorative containers of their choice (e.g. glass, ceramic). They'll learn how to choose the correct wick size & prime the wicks, and how to reuse the molds/containers as well, after burning their candles at home. This is the safest method of candle making! Beeswax is highly prized as a long-lasting, clean-burning wax. It is 100% natural (color is white & yellow), produced by bees and requires next-to-no processing, making it much safer than chemical-ridden paraffin and genetically-modified soy. During the class, we'll discuss how beeswax is made, interesting beeswax history and information, and the benefits of using beeswax over other waxes. Along with their candles, students will take home a thorough, detailed instructional handout, including beeswax information, a wick-sizing chart, ingredients, materials/equipment, suppliers & decorating ideas. This class lasts 1.5 hours and is semi-private (2 students per class). Everything is provided in the class, as well as some snacks & tea. General Class Information: - Very small class sizes! Take a semi-private class on the online calendar for only 2 people per class. Small groups allow for a more personal, enjoyable experience, in which you can feel comfortable to ask all of your questions and then go home ready to try out your new skill! - 100% hands-on! Make the products yourself; you won't watch, you'll do. - Customize your products! I supply the recipe & ingredients, and you choose which work best for you. - Bring nothing! Everything is provided in the class with NO extra materials fee. - It's all in the details! Take home a thorough, detailed instructional handout with recipes, ingredients, materials list & suppliers. DIY classes are offered by Lindsay at Soap Making Classes & More and take place in downtown Long Beach, CA. Once purchased, please provide an email or phone number so that Lindsay can contact you about how to send the gift certificate or contact her in a message through Verlocal. Gift certificates can be emailed or mailed and recipients have 1 year to redeem them. Please contact Lindsay with any questions. Thank you!
Hi, my name is Lindsay. I am the former owner of Blue Dot Organics based out of San Francisco. I taught a variety of large-group classes in the making of soap, candles, lotion, lip balm and various other body and household natural products. I closed this business in the fall of 2014 and traveled abroad with my husband. We returned to Pacifica, California in the fall of 2015 and I began teaching again, but on a smaller scale until May of 2016. My husband was offered a job in Long Beach; so since July of 2016, I have been offering private classes, as well as semi-private classes on my online calendar, for up to 2 people per class on Ocean Blvd. You can enjoy an informative, fun class tailored to you in a relaxed atmosphere. My Soap Making & Teaching Background: I have been making & learning about natural, body-care products since 2012, when I took my first soap-making class with my sister-in-law in Quincy, Massachusetts. It was so fun that I immediately moved on to lotion, candles, bath bombs & more! I had been a teacher long before learning how to make natural products though, so when I moved to San Francisco in 2013, I decided to mesh my 2 specialty areas and open Blue Dot Organics. I have taught in various capacities ever since I graduated with a Bachelor's in Education in 2006, but I prefer the small-group setting for a more personal experience and so you can get the most out of the class! I hope to meet you soon!
