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!

It’s was fascinating and Garrett was very accommodating to us when we showed up early to our appointment! He was informative and helpful and let us space and time to mix aromas and have fun! We will be going back to do this again soon!

This was fun! The process for picking scents is as long or short as you make it - my friend and I couldn’t stop giggling at our weird scent combinations. There was a wide selection of drinks (though all alcoholic). The parking was easy. Fun area to explore nearby, would recommend grabbing a meal afterwards so you can allow your candles to dry for 3 hrs at the store.

Decided to do something different for a Tuesday evening. This lovely class by Garrett did just that for me. He was able to give recommendations and great tips as we made out candles. Would recommend this experience to other fellow candle lovers. Can’t wait to pick up my candles.

Everything was great! Making candles is a super cool process. I learned so much about the proper way even to light a candle. I recommend! Everyone was kind and accommodating. My only issue is with the coffee bar. I suggest going to Starbucks before ordering off their menu. I tipped and paid for a drink that was given away, then made incorrectly, and when I requested another one, I was given the same beverage. I watched my order be sipped away by someone else. My order that was given to someone else looked different from the drink which they claimed was made the same. I was disappointed with the coffee bar. Other than this, everything and everyone was great!

My wife and I enjoyed making candles. Garrett was really nice, very knowledgeable, and funny. The rest of the staff were very helpful and kind.

This experience was unique, enjoyable, & at a lovely shop. I would have liked to have learned more about candle making, and how to build a fragrance - those were largely the reasons I booked. Our host was nice but pretty quiet, even when asked questions. I needed help when my fragrance combination took a wrong turn, & thankfully she was experienced and able to save it. My candles look beautiful and smell amazing in my home now!
