"Murder Mystery" BYOB  Candle-Making Class

HOST a candle-making party... TO DIE FOR🔪

Find out who killed who in an EXCLUSIVE “Murder Mystery” BYOB candle-making party hosted at your home. If you’re looking for an exciting and unique experience, then grab your favorite bottle of wine, your best friend and lets solve this MURDER. 

You'll be guided through 2 hours of candle making, games, drinking, giveaways and an amazing time. The best part? Once your candles have cooled, you'll be able to take them with you!

Invite the ladies over and enjoy wine, candles, games and giveaways!


Private candle-making parties last 2 - 2 1/2 hours and candles will take about 45 minutes to 1 hour to solidify. While your candles are solidifying, someone is mysteriously MURDERED! We'll work together to find out who committed this heinous crime as you design your own custom label to finish off your candle creation. We’ll also play interactive and competitive games, learn candle tips, listen to music and host giveaways!

    Chillin’ At The Studio

    Candles require time to "set" before they can be taken home. They take between 30 minutes to 1 hour to set before you can take them home. You‘re welcome to hang around the studio chatting and enjoying wine, or grab a bite to eat at one of the yummy restaurants in Mt Airy while your candle sets. You can also have food delivered to the studio from the local restaurants or bring your own snacks. While your candle sets, you'll have the opportunity to enter 2 GIVEAWAYS as well as enjoy a few fun games and chat with your fellow candle-makers.

    Candle-Making Safety

    We practice and teach attendees safe handling of candle making during the course of the workshop. Gourmet Candle does not take responsibility for the mishandling of hot wax that may result in injuries on any level.

    Care Instructions

    To maximize the life of your candles, keep wicks trimmed to 1/4 inch. Burn 3-4 hours per use. The fragrance of the candle is released when the wax is melted and pools across the surface of the candle. Please keep away from children and pets.



    Each floor plan for each home produces different results. Most get GREAT results with 1 candle (in medium 15 x 15 ft. to smaller rooms), while others need 2 candles. Understand that it is more difficult to fill open floor plan homes since the scent has to continue to travel and as the scent spreads over large areas it will get less intense. An average room with walls will keep the scent inside and of course create a more intense, strong scent.

    Soy Candles Benefits

    Each soy candle is eco-friendly and made with GMO free soy beans. Soy candles burn cleaner with less soot and burn longer than traditional paraffin candles. Soy candles are also very easy to clean up with soap and water if spilled. The candle tins may be cleaned out and either recycled or reused after the candle has completely burned out.
