SIP & PAINT AT OUR WOOD SIGN WORKSHOPS
At Board & Brush in Duluth, 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 Duluth Owners
Mark & Jana Kiefer
Mark and Jana, plus their 5 children and 2 cats, love living near Lake Superior and enjoying all four seasons that Minnesota has to offer! Duluth is a beautiful city set right on the edge of Lake Superior and there is no better place to get your creative, DIY juices flowing (and it’s especially great to have an engaging indoor activity in the winter when it is -40°F)!
Jana works as a Membership Director at a local Country Club and Mark left his career in the financial world to operate their newly purchased business full-time. Jana has always loved making and creating, so instructing at Board & Brush has been a great gig, especially since Mark does all the heavy lifting and building! They, and their children, fell in love with Board & Brush after attending some workshops over the years, so it seemed like a natural fit to purchase it when the previous owner announced it for sale! They are now ready to bring the studio to its potential and provide for their family, as the kiddos all start driving and heading off to college in the coming years.
