Meet your host, Kevin

After spending far too much on candles, my husband (Charley) and I decided to make our own! We started on a path of testing different waxes, scents, containers, wicks, and all the variables you can imagine to make a great candle. More than four years later and we've developed methods that let anyone get started and be successful. Now, we want to share this process with you! Today, we're the folks behind Land Sea Soul – a candle and home goods company.

Kevin was a great great host! He was well prepared and knew everything there is to know about making candles. Great personally, too

10/10 recommend especially if you or your loved ones have a knack for buying candles. Not only will you learn how to design a scent and make a candle, but you’ll also learn about what makes a candle worth its value.

I had a good friend coming to town, and decided we’d do something other than go to a winery since I’m pregnant this time. Kevin’s class exceeded our expectations. He knows his stuff! Super thoughtful, funny and supportive. It’s nice that it’s a small group because he gets to help all of us. I’d do this class again in a heartbeat. I had the best time!

I LOVE KEVIN. And I loved this class. It was really fun and a really engaging/entertaining way to spend an evening. Kevin was super welcoming, funny and knowledgeable. This class was surprisingly challenging, but fun, and Kevin was there guiding the group the entire way. His suggestions were spot-on but he let everyone find their way with what they liked. Just had the best evening and I left with a candle I’m proud of as well as a lasting desire for Kevin and I to become friends and make candles together.

Kevin took the 6 of us on a scent journey that not only help us connect to our own likes and dislikes, but to connect with each other as well. The workshop was a perfect Sunday afternoon activity and best of all you get your own custom-scented candle to take home! Lovely host, lovely peeps and great afternoon!

This was a lot of fun. Kevin did a great job of walking us through the process and being intentional on making really good selections. It was very positive and uplifting.
