    • We use an 11 oz jar with 8 oz of wax and approximately 1 oz of fragrance oil. The candle is the same size as those we sell in the store.  The burn time is 40+ hours.  See below for examples of candles that have been made.

                • Get in touch with us right away!  Depending on availability, we may be able to open an additional seat to accommodate your friend.  If not, we can definitely find (or create) a class that has room for everyone in your party!  You can send us a message using our Live Chat feature, you can call us at (469) 466-2876, or you can email us at

                Can I plan a class with just friends and family?

                • Yes!  If you'd like a class that is private, for just you and those you know, we can setup a private event.  Private events hosted by CRAV are held at our Dallas location, but can also be hosted by you at a location of your choosing.  Reach out to inquire about dates and rates!  We'd be honored to celebrate with you!
