Our team recently had the opportunity to get crafty at a scented candle-making workshop at Candlefish, and I can’t remember the last time I had that much fun. Did you know Candlefish celebrated its eight-year anniversary in October?

The event was BYOB and taught us the ins and outs of candle making — all beginner-friendly. We drank champagne, learned about candle care, and took home two 9oz candles that we made from scratch (scent and all). I’ve been burning my candle every day since.

If you’re looking for your next friend’s night out or a holiday gift, I can guarantee this is the perfect fit. And that’s coming from one of the least crafty people you’ve ever met.

Schedule a workshop. Classes start at various times between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. depending on the day. Want an inside look? Peep our reel.

Proceeds from the event will benefit SC Aquarium Reef Research.
