What you'll do

At the Candle Bar, you will have the opportunity to learn a new skill and create 2 unique one-of-a-kind candles.

Come pull up a chair and we'll serve you a drink of your choice (red or white wine, or a local beer). Take in the beautiful aesthetics of the store and make something special for someone special...or simply just yourself. Here you can take a piece of Houston back home with you.

We'll start off by teaching you the process behind making your own personal candle and the science behind building a fragrance. Then we'll walk you through building your own fragrance. Once we've completed that, we will guide you through making and pouring your own candle. While the candle is drying, feel free to shop at Forth & Nomad, or relax on our beautiful, wooden patio under our historic oak trees.

Please allow up to 3 hours for your candles to dry before taking them home. You can also pick up your candles at another time.

We hope to see you soon!

This was an amazing experience for me and my fiancée. Learning the steps to making candles, taking in the ambiance, and feeling the good vibes was super! Idali was a fantastic host and so much fun to connect with through the experience. We’ll be sure to share with others and we definitely recommend.

I genuinely didn’t know what to expect but absolutely loved every minute of it. From the complimentary beer & wine to the beautiful shop I was blown away. It was so much fun & would definitely go again once my candles burn out.

If your looking for something to do while In Houston, this is definitely something to add to your list! Personalization of your own candles made with your choice of scents

Idali was so awesome. Me and my friend were thinking candle making was going to be super regular and maybe a bit boring but Idali made the experience super fun and easy. From picking out scents to nice conversation it was a great time. The shop the candle making is situated in also so cute and has nice things to buy and delicious coffee. Definitely worth the price for 2 candles and a beautiful setting.

This was so much fun! I would definitely book this again. You learn to make candles, have a glass of wine or beer while you make two candles you get to take home. I went with my whole family and we all came home with candles we love!

It’s was great. Alex is the best. We had so much fun! They served drinks which were pretty okay. Me and my friend had so much fun meeting the other women there. They were patient with us and even spent a little extra time helping me make the candles. It was pretty easy but different. I had a hard time choosing between scents. I recommend this to anyone.
