Invite your Mami, invite your Tias, lets celebrate the matriarchs in our lives with a candle making workshop! Get ready for an afternoon that’s as heartwarming as it is creative, brought to you in partnership with @sacredscents. We’re celebrating the spirit and stories of Dominican moms with a special event that combines the joy of candle making with the laughter and connection of shared stories. It’s the perfect way to spend time with your family, honor the matriarchs in your life, and create something beautiful together.

Event Features:

  • Candle Making Workshop: No experience? No worries! We’ll guide you through the process of making your own scented candle. You’ll choose from a variety of scents, add personal touches with decorations, and craft a candle that’s uniquely yours.
  • Reading Segment - “Dominican Moms Be Like”: Prepare to laugh and nod along as we dive into stories and sayings that perfectly capture the essence of Dominican motherhood. This segment is all about celebrating the quirks, wisdom, and love of Dominican moms through relatable anecdotes and heartfelt humor.

What You Get:

• All the supplies you need for candle making: soywax, an apron, a selection of scents, an 8 oz jar, and decorative elements like crystals and dried flowers.

• A special time dedicated to celebrating and sharing in our cultural stories, bringing everyone a bit closer through laughter and creativity.


• $45 for one: Come by yourself, or gift a spot to someone special for an unforgettable afternoon.

• $80 for two: Bring a friend or a family member and enjoy a special discount.

We encourage our participants to write a note or letter to the women in their lives and read it during the  event. This event isn’t just about making candles; it’s a celebration of our roots, the women who raised us, and the stories that shape us. Whether you’re a crafting pro or new to the scene, you’ll leave with a candle that lights up your home and memories that warm your heart.
