Wax 'n' Wix Candle Making Workshop
Wax 'n' Wix is bringing their "Make Your Own" candle shop to Gore Mountain. Add the spectacular views and comfortable ambiance at Gore Mountain to the interesting and rewarding activity of creating a beautifully handcrafted candle, for a "One of a Kind", memorable Adirondack experience.
Using our safe and fun process, which is suitable for individuals of all ages and skills, choose the shape of your candle, the color of wax, and a unique fragrance. You place the colored wax into prepared candle molds, Wax 'n' Wix chandler adds the hot wax and the scent. In 30 minutes, your beautiful, fragrant, handcrafted candle is ready and you enjoy the satisfying sense of a job well done!
All materials are provided, as well as the friendly and helpful instruction you need to complete this interesting and engaging task. Our "Candle Makers" enjoy the entire process. There are always a lot of laughs around the table as the members sample the various fragrances and plan their colored wax arrangement. The final product is beautiful!
We offer many shapes in two size options. 1lb candle is $10, 1 ¼ lb candle is $14. Wax 'n' Wix provides everything, including molds, colored wax, a fragrance and detailed candle making instructions. We've got some new shapes to choose from, and we are also making candles in wine glasses and jars this summer!
Advance reservations are accepted and walk-ups are welcome throughout the day. Our workshop is open every Saturday and Sunday through October 6. Plan to spend some additional time on the mountain to enjoy a scenic skyride or explore Gore's hiking/biking trail network and adventure activities. Also, look for our workshop during Harvest Fest 2019!
