Make candles and bath salts or try Feng Shui at events this week

Feeling artsy? (Or, you know, just in need of a good Insta?) You’re in luck. Baton Rouge has several opportunities for you to channel your creative side this week.

The Journey Lab, a self-proclaimed sanctuary for artists and workshop space, will be hosting a candle making class tonight, Aug. 31, at 6 p.m. Participants will make their own 8-ounce, soy-based candle, choosing from more than 60 fragrances.

The first candle will be made in a lidded container provided by The Journey Lab, with additional containers available, but participants are also encouraged to bring along their own containers for a more unique shape. Participants will also be guided through the process of making lavender eucalyptus bath salts.

The class will be led by Mary Helen Borck, who can be reached at [email protected]. The cost of the class is $55. Journey Lab is at 731 Franklin St.

Not interested in crafts but still looking to get creative? Feng Shui could provide an outlet for you. Beginning next Tuesday, Sept. 5, 6:30-8:30 p.m., The Red Shoes will be hosting an introduction to Feng Shui class.

Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese art of placement as it relates to harmony, prosperity and balance in our environment. Through this class, you could discover how to correct problems in a variety of situations, including love, career and interior design.

The class, facilitated by Feng Shui Master Denise DuBos, will be held each Tuesday until Sept. 19. Cost of registration is $25 per class or $60 for three classes. Register in advance, either by phone at 338-1170 or at theredshoes.org. The Red Shoes is at 2303 Government St.
