At Board & Brush Creative Studio, our goal is to turn you into a “DIY master” by educating you to understand and appreciate the beauty of raw materials—the wood, the knots, the color variations and the simple imperfections that will make your project unique. Distressing, sanding with the grain and staining are a few of the important steps we will guide you through to make your personalized wood sign look as though it has been with you for years—like a vintage heirloom.
Hone your own passion for décor and DIY, tools and directions, you create the friendships and craft.
Board & Brush offers a wide variety of hands-on, private experiences from workshops, private parties, bridal showers, bachelorette gatherings, children’s birthday bashes, corporate events and fundraisers. All educational workshops are a flat fee and include everything you will need to leave with a beautiful, classic wooden piece to adorn your walls and the skills to make another at home!
