About this Experience

This make&take is for all of you that want to show off your creative side yet still get something useful out of it. Head on down to the west end of Manitou Springs, and join me and my friend Sarah of Skye Candle Co and let’s get our candle making on! I’ll share with you the artistry of watercolor, and Sarah will share with you the artisanal skill of candle pouring with plenty of scents that will warm your heart. This is definitely a 2 for 1 deal, so come and spend a little time in Manitou Springs and while you’re at it get something meaningful out of it: a hand made candle.
