A Sensory, BYOB Activity

BY // 06.06.24

Today’s entry into our “Explore the Great Indoors” series offers an escape from the Dallas heat with the cool reprieve of candle making. The sensory activities include picking your own fragrance (ranging from fresh to sweet) and a pretty vessel, plus the opportunity to enjoy wine, beer, and bites while chatting with friends or a date. Along with making for a fun afternoon, the best candle making classes in Dallas allow you to bring your creation home and enjoy the sweet scent of (semi) hard work all summer long.
