SIP & PAINT AT OUR WOOD SIGN WORKSHOPS
At Board & Brush in Athens, we marry the joy of wine and paint with the classic timelessness of wooden signs. Our instructor-led DIY wood sign workshops allow you to combine your creativity and willingness to learn new skills. We provide you with the instruction, materials and design for you to distress, sand, stain, paint, and customize your personalized piece of art!
HOW IT WORKS
1. REGISTER FOR A WORKSHOP
View our calendar above to find a date and time that works best for you and your friends and family (the more, the merrier!). You can also look for a workshop that features the type of project you’d like to create, like a PYP or specialty project. Then, you’ll browse our gallery of hundreds of designs to choose which one you’d like to create in your upcoming workshop!
2. ARRIVE EARLY!
Our workshops start on time, so you’ll want to arrive early to get settled! You can start thinking about the endless creative possibilities ahead, take photos with friends, and enjoy your favorite beverage (some studios are BYOB, while others sell alcohol, please check with your local studio about their policies).
3. GET YOUR DIY ON!
At your wood sign workshop, you’ll turn raw wood into a finished project fit for your home! You’ll be guided by our expert instructors throughout each step in the workshop - sanding, distressing, staining, painting your stencil, and waxing! You choose all your colors in person at the workshop! Our workshops are typically about 3 hours long.
4. DISPLAY YOUR NEW DÉCOR
When you leave our workshops, you’ll leave with a wood project that you’ll be proud to display in your home! We mean it when we say that no experience is necessary - our instructors are there to help turn you into a DIY expert. Now that your beautiful farmhouse-inspired project is complete, you’ll take it home to find the perfect spot to display it!

Meet Board & Brush Athens Owners
Suzanne Platt & Farrah Sinclair
After earning her marketing degree at the University of Tampa, Suzanne decided to fulfill her creative side and passion for hair by getting her cosmetology license. She is a Midwest transplant from Indianapolis. She and her husband Andy have three young children Owen, Charlotte and Fletcher. They’ve lived in Athens since 2014. She’s always had a passion for DIY, but with small kids it was hard to find the time to start and finish a project. Board & Brush gives people the perfect outlet to create something personalized for their home in a fun setting.
Farrah spent most of her career in sports medicine working as a Certified Athletic trainer in the collegiate, high school and clinic settings; including massage therapy and marketing for a group of physical therapy clinics. She took a brief stint at home with young kids and was previously the Insurance Coordinator for Sports Medicine at the University of Central Florida. She loves how rewarding it is to start with a raw product and make it into something beautiful to last generations! She is a southern girl from Valdosta, GA. She and her husband Scott have been married for almost 14 years and have a son Creed and daughter Asher.
When Suzanne & Farrah came across Board & Brush they knew it was the perfect opportunity!
