Welcome to the IGCA

Since 1965, IGCA has served as a resource for candlemakers and vendors of candlemaking supplies, both large and small, from those who only make candles as a hobby to those with retail and/or wholesale operations.


From the By-laws: The purpose of IGCA shall be to instruct and train members, to instruct the public, to encourage cooperation, goodwill, fellowship and exchange of educational ideas; and to raise and maintain the standards of candle making.
