  1. Is there a minimum group size? We require a minimum of 6 participants to book a private event.
  2. Where is the event at? The event will take place at our shop in Hillsboro, IL.
  3. Will my candles be ready right after the event? The candles will have to sit at our shop for one week after your event before they are ready for pickup. This allows time for them to cool and finish the curing process.
  4. What is provided? We provide all materials and equipment, as well as light refreshments!
  5. Do I have to pay ahead of time? We require payment for all members to be made at least 48 hours prior to your event. 
  6. How long does the process take? Depending on group size, the process takes anywhere from 45-75 minutes. Private party rental includes use of our space for up to an hour and a half, or until the candle making process is complete.
