Carved Candle Business Workshop
This workshop is for candle maker's, and those wanting to become candle maker's, interested in adding dip and carve candles to their business or wanting to start a dip and carve candle business of their own. We have done the work and research for you. You just have to come learn the skill in our shop.

Please note this is not for hobbyist! This is an expensive skill to learn and start up. Average start up costs not including this workshop are $5,000. Even if you have carved wood or pottery, it is not the same. The average candle carver takes at least a year of practice before they can produce a safe quality product to sell. This workshop will help you learn the basics hands on with an experienced carver. Serious inquiries only.
