Hi! I am Ricci and I have been making candles for over 12 years. I became interested in creating my own candles when soy first started making an appearance as a safer alternative to paraffin. As founder of Sonoma 707 Candle Co. I bring my expertise in soy candle production to you. Not only will we create great smelling candles, but you will learn the basics of working with soy and leave with a comfortable understanding of ratios, temperatures and fragrance. We will discuss sourcing and at home methods of candle making. With our professional label maker and photoshop skills we will together create an all custom one of a kind label for your candle. Finally embellish your candle with a variety of botanical choices!

Where you'll be

Our workshop is located in the historical Jack London Village, one of the oldest stone buildings on the west coast. Originally built as a saw mill it’s spent it’s years evolving into what today is home to restaurants, a chocolate shop, tasting room and candle shop! Some, do say, it’s haunted.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 49 reviews.

It's a great experience for our family weekend activity. Ricci provided a lot of scents, sprinkles and stickers which made our candles so customized. Highly recommend!

My fiancée and I came with our dog and had a wonderful time with Ricci! We had a lot of fun picking out our scents, pouring and decorating our candles. Ricci is a DELIGHT to be around, and she was super accommodating of our younger puppy. There were a TON of neat customization options for our candles, we even made custom labels! Additionally, the candles are a great value for the price and they come out super high quality. I’d definitely recommend this experience to anyone visiting Sonoma: hand-making the candles is a blast, and even if you aren’t a huge scented-candle fan, they make great gifts!

Ricci was phenomenal. We were the only one’s in the class and this made it so much more personal! We enjoyed learning about candle making and she had an impressive number of scents. All nontoxic and good for the earth. She also has this special touch by letting you name your own candles abs applying personalized stickers. Overall great experience.
