What you'll do

At the Candle Bar, you will have the opportunity to learn a new skill and create 2 unique one-of-a-kind candles.

Come pull up a chair and we'll serve you a drink of your choice (red or white wine, or a local beer). Take in the beautiful aesthetics of the store and make something special for someone special...or simply just yourself. Here you can take a piece of Houston back home with you.

We'll start off by teaching you the process behind making your own personal candle and the science behind building a fragrance. Then we'll walk you through building your own fragrance. Once we've completed that, we will guide you through making and pouring your own candle. While the candle is drying, feel free to shop at Forth and Nomad, or relax on our beautiful, wooden patio under our historic oak trees.

Please allow up to 2 hours for your candles to dry before taking them home. You can also pick up your candles at another time.

We hope to see you soon!
Other things to note
We pour the wax for you, so no need to worry about younger children.

Very cute location. They obviously take a lot of pride in what they make! We did the candle making experience. It was very cute but pretty pricey. Nice location just not sure if it was worth the money spent on the experience.

This was so fun! I got this for my parents (in their 50’s) thinking they mag or may not like it. But all they had were beaming reviews and were so excited to show the candles they made. They had so much fun.

My friends and I had such a great time making candles at Forth and Nomad. Garrett was super sweet and helpful. There are so many scents to choose from to make 2 unique candles personalized to your preferences. This was a really fun and creative way to spend time with friends while also making something unique! I would definitely do this again!

Such a fun time. We were able to bring home some awesome candles that we personally love since we made exactly what we wanted. A lot of fun and can’t wait to do it again.

Amazing experience and adorable shop! The candle making was informative and I learned how to make my candles last longer. Stephanie was so sweet and helpful! When you’re done making your candles, walking around the shop is like a little art museum full of surprises. Highly recommend!
