WAX ON TAP - HOT WAX SATURDAYS

BYOV (Bring Your Own Vessel) Candle Making Workshop.

Walk ins welcome!
Every Saturday at the studio, we have 3 different fragrances of hot soy wax on tap! Bring in a unique vessel, or choose from our selection! Have a favorite candle that just ran out? Have a favorite tea cup? Now you can bring it in and refill/re-purpose it during our Wax on Tap workshops!

Here it works: 

  • We encourage you to bring your own vessel! Shop the local antique stores here in Ellinwood to find the perfect glass, metal, or ceramic vessel.  Or bring back your favorite Kansas Earth and Sky Candle Co glass, or any other candle vessel to refill with your favorite fragrance. Typically, if it can hold boiling water, it can be a candle! (No shot glasses or thin wine glass please, we will inspect vessels prior to pouring.  It needs to be safe before anything else!)

  • Please wash and clean out all vessels before class!

  • We will have a selection of wonderful fragrances for you to choose from, each week.  Allow about 45 minutes for the candle to cool. 

  • Reservations are not required., however, if you have a group of 6 or more, please give us a heads up. 

 $2.00 per ounce of wax.  No entry fee!

Build A Fragrance Candle Making Workshop

In this class, we will guide you through the scent discovery and fragrance building process. After a brief explanation of scent building, you'll get to choose from a wide variety of notes to blend your perfect scent! You'll then get to use this fragrance to create two custom scented 5 ounce candles.

This is a BYOB event, feel free to bring in your beverage of choice. We will provide the bottle opener and stemware.

The candles you make in class will cure overnight at Kansas Earth and Sky Candle Studio and will be ready to be picked up the following day. If you're unable to make it in the following day, we're happy to make arrangements for you to pick up on another date or have them shipped.

Candles take about 45 min to set up.  Total class time is about 2 hours.

General rules for choosing a candle vessel-

OUR SAFETY IS OUR TOP PRIORITY IN SELECTING A CANDLE VESSEL FOR OUR POUR YOUR OWN CANDLE EVENTS.
When choosing a container for your soy wax candle, there are three very basic safety rules that need to followed:

1. It won’t catch fire.
2. It won’t leak.
3. It won’t crack or break.

Make sure the container you are thinking about using as a candle vessel is made of non-flammable material.

-Wood, and plastic, obviously, would make a poor choice as a candle container due to its flammability.  Certian shallow wood containers like bread bowls can definitely work.

Highly porous material such as non-glazed terracotta, clay or cement has the potential ability to soak up the wax and can become a fire hazard.

-Metal can work, but the wick cannot be too close to the vessel, as metal can get really hot, so its best to have a diameter of 2.5 – 3″ minimum. This figure very much depends on the choice of wick too.  Metal containers MUST be water tight.  You can test this with some water to check for leaks.

-Glass is an ideal material for a candle container due to its non-flammable and non-porous properties. The thicker the glass, the less likely it is to crack. Glassware, such as canning or jelly jars, tea cups and other heat safe materials are popular products often used in candle-making. That being said, even heat safe glass can sometimes still crack if exposed to too much heat. Containers that are chipped or cracked should not be used.

Although following these guidelines will greatly minimize the chances of a problem occurring, nothing is infallible. Kansas Earth and Sky Candle Co, cannot be held responsible for accidents, cracking, or fires from pour your own candle products.  All candles should be burned on a heat resistant surface far from any flammable objects such as overhead cabinets or draperies. The wicks should always be trimmed to 1/4″ with no mushrooming before every burn. Most importantly, a burning candle should never be left unattended. We recommend that all of our customers follow these safety guidelines and label their products with one of our caution labels which includes proper burning instructions.
