DIY Candle Bar Experience

Create your own candle with your own custom fragrance blend!


$28.00 per session



About this experience

NOTE: We also offer the DIY Candle Bar experience as a private party - perfect for birthdays, showers, family time, corporate teambuilding, and more! Contact us for details!

Visit our in-store candle studio and join us at the DIY Candle Bar (currently weekends only) to create your own custom scent blend and pour it into your own handcrafted candle! Explore our fragrance library and make a scent combo that's unique to you. Then we'll guide and help you through the process of making your own 8 oz scented candle! While your new candle cures and hardens you'll have about an hour to shop and dine around Rockport before returning to pick up your finished candle (or we can ship it to you).

HOW IT WORKS: Tap BOOK NOW above to select your date and time and then number of seats. We add more dates every few weeks. Your session will take about 30 minutes. You'll pay for your ticket(s) now to reserve your spot, and then just show up at Rockport Candle Company for your experience! Please be punctual so we can properly manage the number of people at the candle bar. **Remember to leave extra time to find parking before your session.** Let's have some fun!

MORE INFO: Only four tickets available for each appointment time. Same-day appointments not available. Candles will be ready to pick up approximately one hour after you poured them, or you can make arrangements for us to ship them to you. Looking to purchase more than 4 tickets at a time or interested in scheduling a private event/party for the DIY Candle Bar? Just CONTACT US and we'll get right back to you!

Fun an enjoyable!

I had picked this for a birthday gift for my girlfriend. We both had an amazing time it’s a fun an easy process. A lot of fragrances to pick from as well!

Fun Experience!

The DIY candle bar was such a fun experience. Christina is a great host and used her expertise to help us create our unique candle fragrances. A bonus was the snow falling outside the window over the water creating a warm, cozy feeling as we created our candles. Thank you.

Quick and easy process to make my own candle! I was a little nervous about picking my own scent combo, but it turned out great

Susan Leavitt
Wonderful Products

My family and I love our Rockport Candle Company candles (Cocktails By the Sea, Mermaid, Front Beach, and my DIY Roses, Rain, and Almond combination). I had a hard time choosing the gifts for my family because the scents and candle names were so much fun. The DIY candle making was a great experience. Christina is lovely and very accommodating.

I’ve been vacationing in Rockport since 1983. I’ve seen a lot of shops come and go. Rockport Candle Company has a wonderful future!
