A new DIY candle making experience is coming to Reston — just in time for the holidays.
Paddywax Candle Bar is coming to Reston Town Center (1816 Library Street) with a grand opening next Saturday (Nov. 23) and will allow customers to design their own candles.
Participants can choose their own container and scent combinations before an instructor assists them with the rest of the process. There are more than 2,000 possible combinations, according to a press release.
The candle making classes cost $40 which includes a take-home candle, which is available for pick-up three hours later.
Premade candles at the shop cost around $12-25.
Paddywax Candle Bar first opened its doors in Nashville, and the Reston shop will mark the company’s 8th location in the U.S.
Alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase during candle making classes for guests over the age of 21.
Participants are also eligible for 20% off their purchase of candles, greeting cards, hair accessories, personal care items and textiles after their class.
