Craft + Foster | Candle Lab Date Night

Craft + Foster | Candle Lab

  • FRIDAY, January 26th 7-9pm 
  • 7:00 PM  9:00 PM

Join us for festive sips and bites while we host one of San Diego's favorite local candlemakers and give you the opportunity to pour 3- 4oz candles of your very own. 

About the Makers:

In the spring of 2015, wife, mother of four, military veteran and maker, Melissa Burgess, received her first DYI candle kit. Melissa quickly fell in love with the candle making process and began pouring them for her home, friends, and family.

After signing up for a handful of local maker's markets, Melissa's unique blends, strong fragrant throws, and muted packaging, quickly gained the attention of San Diego consumers and retailers alike.

Now what was once a part-time hobby has become a full-time family business with a retail/pour studio in Oceanside, CA and over 150 retailers across the country!

Why “Craft + Foster”?

People often ask where the name Craft + Foster originated.  It’s pretty simple!

The word “craft” refers to the artisan craft of candle making, while “foster” speaks to Melissa's desire to create products that subtly enhance life’s everyday moments, by fostering warmth and light to any space and occasion.
