Crafty Classes at House of Lukaya
When you browse through high-end boutiques, do you ever wish those luxurious, scented soy candles were a little more affordable? Well, you can learn to make your own starting today at House of Lukaya when Ernest Barnes of Fragrant Soy Products begins teaching classes on candle-making. The classes, Wednesdays and Sundays from 7 to 9 p.m., cost $20 and you’re guaranteed to leave with a 16-ounce candle. If you want to make more than one, it’s an additional $10 per candle.
Since Lucretia Jones opened her shop, which carries handmade goods spanning art, apparel, jewelry and bath products earlier this year, she’s been focusing on using her space for more than just retail. She teaches private knitting lessons and soon other teachers will be offering crocheting lessons and sewing classes. “I’m going to be adding more classes as soon as teachers show themselves,” she adds.
The candle-making classes will continue as long as there is interest. Call before you come — 377-3380 — so Barnes can make sure there are enough materials on hand.
