Convivial Production Candle Workshop: The Beautiful Process of Making and Designing a Candle

This is more than just candle-making. At this workshop, you’ll become an expert. Attendees are invited to tour the expanded Convivial studio space, view a casting demonstration, and even create their own candle. A studio team member will explain their craft – complete with sketches, mock-ups, and more – and even break down the candle-making thought process, including exploring both constraints and opportunities. They will then demonstrate a few surface designs before each attendee has the opportunity to create their own cast.

After the event, the Convivial staff will process the candles through two firings and glaze them before the final step; the pouring of one of the studio’s signature scents. Afterward, you’ll have a one-of-a-kind candle made by YOU. That’s pretty special.

If an attendee is from out of state, their candle can be shipped to them for $7.75. Local attendees may pick up their finished candles at the Convivial studio between the hours of 8-5 or at Verdant.

Snacks included.

Convivial is a ceramic design and manufacturing company that labors over the creation of handmade wares for the home, table, and garden. Our company began in 2014 as a one-woman show, wheel-throwing out of a home garage. It now operates out of an 8,000 sq. ft. design space in Kansas City, Missouri’s Historic West Bottoms. Each piece is brought from dust to life thanks to our hardworking and resilient team of creatives.
