Nashville-based candle company, The Candle Bar, is coming to Dallas starting February 16 for an exclusive pop-up workshop. It will be located at 2649 Main Street in Deep Ellum and will be open for six months of shopping and candle making.
For $40 each and an hour of your time, you can choose your own vessel and fragrance. You’ll then be taught the skill of candle pouring and leave with a new wonderfully scented addition for your home.
The class is also BYOB so bring your own wine or beer to sip on while crafting.
The Candle Bar got started in 2018 as a sister company of Paddywax, which has been around since 1996.
It “began with a zeal for candle making and the opportunity to share the craft with the loyal customer base created with Paddywax,” says Candle Bar events and PR manager Emilie Harvey. “All of the containers and fragrances of The Candle Bar are custom designs by Paddywax.”
Although the Deep Ellum location is planning to be open just through August, if this neighborhood pop-up does well, it may stick around permanently. The Candle Bar is also planning for new stores in Houston, Austin and Plano. The Deep Ellum location was chosen for its DIY vibes and nightlife, which is a great fit for The Candle Bar customer base, according to Harvey.
For your custom candle, you can choose between a variety of vessels ranging from modern iridescent ceramics to timeless traditional glass. Vessels are available in every color so it can fit into any home or style. There are more than 40 fragrance options, including scents in the sweet, woody, spicy and fresh families.
The popular scents are Tobacco + Patchouli, Sea Salt + Sage, and Eucalyptus + Santal.
The Grand Opening will take place on Saturday, February 16. You can book your spot online for workshops that day, as well as receive complimentary treats and giveaways for coming out for the opener.
