About this event

Dear Women of Marin,

Please join us at the Left Bank Brasserie in Larkspur for a delicious meal and networking with other fabulous entrepreneurial women.


Laura Geranen

Owner, North Bay Candleworks

Talk Title:

Candles Through the Ages

light sources — from necessity to ambiance

In this informative talk, Laura will lead us through the origins of candle-making, covering Ancient Egypt, The Roman Empire, China and the Qin Dynasty, to India and the Indigenous tribes of Alaska and Canada, culminating in the discovery and development of modern candle making today.

She will discuss ingredients, how they are made, best practices for longevity and ideas on how business owners can utilize these products for focused meditation, relaxation, creative thought and private label options to promote your business.

This is a not to be missed speaker!


Laura Geranen met Doug Coomer, a Registered Nurse in the ER Dept at Kaiser in July 2018. He had a side hobby of making candles for friends and family and everyone loved them. Laura and Doug said to themselves: ”Let's Do This!“ …and so launched their website and the candle making business in November of 2018.

North Bay Candleworks started out in a 1 bedroom apartment where they were using a small presto pot, growing to a warehouse in San Rafael. These days, selling at numerous farmers markets and artisan fairs, the business has grown exponentially.

Please note:

Since Covid is yet again spreading like wild fire, to ensure the safest possible experience, we are asking 2 things:

1. Please stay home if you are experiencing ANY symptoms that might potentially be Covid.

2. If attending, please take a home Covid antigen test within the hour of the meeting (and bring a photo showing your negative result). Come ready to show proof of the negative Covid test.

We will meet at 6pm - in the back room at the Leftbank Brassiere, in Larkspur.

Looking forward to seeing you in person, August 9th!
