At the Forth and Nomad Maker 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 (coffee, wine, beer, etc.). 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!
Husband and wife duo, Andy and Morgan Sommer, created Forth and Nomad in 2017 as a place for people to come together to unleash their inner creative. They launched their own line of candles shortly after and after countless hours of testing have created a custom tailored experience to create your own unique scented candle. Andy and Morgan will walk you through the science and chemistry behind candlemaking, while making it a fun and relaxing experience completely new to Houston.
As part of your Maker Bar experience, we'll serve you a drink of your choice so you can truly relax and enjoy the experience.
We will provide all of the necessary equipment you'll need to create your one of a kind product.
The Maker Bar is located inside one of Houston's most beautiful and well designed stores, Forth and Nomad, which features a curated collection of handmade, small batch, and local products. These products include jewelry, leather goods, apparel, home goods and ceramics. So if you're in need of another gift before you leave? We've got you covered.
We pour the wax for you, so no need to worry about younger children.
