    This class was excellent! It was the perfect occasion for a mother-daughter activity with my mom who was visiting from out of town. We both had so much fun and were able to make candles out of meaningful wine bottles. Not only do they smell great, but they will serve as memorable tokens. Fernando was an excellent host and teacher and did a great job explaining the process to us and helping us out along the way. The class was a lot more in depth than I thought it would be and I appreciated the attention to detail of his explanations of the entire process, start to finish. The location was very cool and Fernando took the time to show off the wonderful views of downtown Chicago as we allowed our candles to cool. I have already recommended this class to several friends and would even be interested in coming back to do it again!

    I wanted to surprise my wife by taking her to this class but they didn't have any classes scheduled for when we were going to be in town. I sent an email requesting a class to be available, assuming I wouldn't hear back, and that same day they replied and we're very accommodating. They opened a class up on a day that worked best for us. It was amazing. The teacher, Fernando was very informative and fun. We had a great time and learned a lot. I loved how hands on it was and I'm excited to start making my own candles when we get home.

    I bought this experience as a gift for my mom, and we both loved it! Learning how to cut the bottles and create the candles using different colors and scents was such a cool experience. I loved how the teachers gave plenty of advice on how to continue making your own wine bottle candles at home. The room was a bit tricky to find in the building, but some nice people pointed us in the right direction. Overall, I would highly recommend this class!

    This was a fantastic class! Great value for the price and I love my candle! I thought it was unique because we learned how to turn a wine bottle into a candle and it was way more hands on then I thought it would be! The scents here are fantastic as well! The owners were so friendly and provided great instructions. They will give you a wine bottle if you don’t have one but try to fine one that you really like the shape, label or has some sort of meaning to you. I forgot to bring my own but wish I did. The wine bottles they provided were completely fine though! It’s also byob so you can drink during the class! I would recommend this class to anyone.

    Favorite Dabble class! Learned how to cut a wine bottle and actually steps to do it at home! Different scents and color options were available to us, as we were not limited inside the box. Fernando and Sara were great instructors but also owners to a business that uses all-natural products. Their scents make them different and learning the process of cutting bottles make me appreciate their candles even more. It's a small class where everyone gets to experience every process. Also, enjoyed the great rooftop view. It's such a fun and relaxing class. I would recommend this to anyone!

Our group was rather large, but the instructor managed the group quite well, and walked us through the bottle candle and candle making process. The instructor offered different candle scents and colors, so each of us were able to personalize our candles. The class went slightly longer than expected, so plan on spending extra time there. Afterwards we asked for a restaurant recommendation nearby and were directed to a small Mexican restaurant that had outstanding salsa! Overall, it was a wonderful experience. When we got home and shared our candles with our family, other family members were sad they didn't go with!

I appreciated them so much, and definitely will be taking another dabble based on this experience.

    This was a fantastic experience!! I was already familiar with the company but not the people behind it. I loved to hear their story, see the process and have the hands-on opportunity! I went by myself but there was a cute couple on a date...they looked like they had a fantastic time, so keep this in mind if you are trying to figure out something to do!

    My mom and I really enjoyed this class. Fernando was an excellent teacher, very patient and very generous with his time. Fernando explained how to transfer the skills from the class to candle making at home. Our end product is beautiful and smells absolutely amazing. I think this is one of the best smelling candles I've every owned. I highly recommend this class!

    I had an awesome time! My fiancé has been trying his hand at wine bottle cutting, but couldn’t figure out why weren’t coming out clean. Well, thanks to this class, now I know and we are going to take what I learned and put into action.

    The scents you get to choose from are an absolute dream! I couldn’t decide if I wanted to smell it or eat it.

    The teacher was patient, understanding, and attentive - especially because I was part of a smaller class size.

    Definitely take this class. It’s fun, informative/practical, and the studio smells amazing.

    Fernando has such great energy. Enthusiastic, informative, interesting and passionate about not just candles but about meeting new people. I had so much fun there and have already agreed to come back and take the class again with more of my girlfriends! Plus, I LOVE my candle. It has my entire 1st floor of my home smelling and feeling so cozy! Absolutely recommend this class.

    This was my first dabble class. Was originally going to take another candle-making class but that one got canceled, and I'm glad because this one was so much fun. The teacher was patient and laid back, and it was a really enjoyable experience. Their candle scents are very unique and not chemical-smelling at all... Highly recommended!

Fernando and Sara were wonderful instructors...you see firsthand the level of care they put into their products. From Fernando teaching us how to expertly cut our glass to Sarah showing us how to perfectly pour our candles, this class did not disappoint! Perfect date night for my husband and I...and our candles look beautiful/smell amazing in our home!

    I got this class for my sister's birthday and it was great! We learned a lot about making candles and are thrilled with the end product. The instructor gave us tips for doing this at home, and also shared why they do things a certain way over other methods. We were both shocked at how easy it was to break the glass. I've already recommended this class to two other people.

    My first dabble experience and it was great. The teacher was really laid back- the vibe was more akin to hanging out a friend's place than attending a class. The teacher explained each step, why it needed to happen, and how to go about procuring supplies / materials if the user wanted to repeat the process at home, as well as tips and tricks that the instructor had discovered in his time candle making. Venue was great, instructor was great, material was great, experience was great. Would enthusiastically recommend.
