Art Box Making Workshops

All workshops are held at 4141 State Street E-1, Santa Barbara, CA (right off the 154 highway).

We think sharing a box of chocolate is a very special moment so, hold on. Create an even better memory by challenging yourself to find a magical, secluded place to sit and make your own personalized chocolate box to give. We have created an experience for just this to share with another person in our Art Box Making Workshops. The 2-hour workshop involves taking a blank wooden box and personalizing it with the media listed below. You will go home with your own unique art box filled with chocolate to keep for yourself or give as a gift.


Workshops include a 6" x 6" wooden box, art supplies, examples of how to use art supplies, labels and 8 oz. of your choice of Chaca Bites! You can also add more boxes at the time of the workshop while boxes last. We have 8" x 8" boxes and smaller 2" x 6" boxes that fit about 6 Chaca Bites! 

$55 per person - Purchase Here!
