SIP & PAINT AT OUR WOOD SIGN WORKSHOPS

At Board & Brush in Chico, 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 Chico Owner

Katie Mintzer

Katie has always loved helping people find their artistic ability. She moved to Chico to study art at Chico State University shortly after marrying her husband, Randy. They fell in love with the city and decided to make it their home. They have been married for 18 years and have two children, Cody and Zoey, and a rescue dog named Lucky. Cody enjoys hunting and fishing, while Zoey is on a competitive dance team. Katie enjoys going to estate sales to find treasures with her mom and has always loved giving something a new and different life by changing or fixing it up. From a young age, Katie has always found projects to keep her busy and finds it very therapeutic. After attending her first workshop, she knew that Board & Brush was for her. When she’s not busy creating something in her backyard, she teaches art at a high school in Yuba City. She’s very excited to bring Board & Brush to Chico!
