Frequently Asked Questions

If you don’t see the answer to your question below, please contact your local studio.

Are there any risks involved with your woodworking workshops?

Drills, hammers, mallets, nails, sand paper, paint and oil based stains are used during a workshop, so precautions need to be taken.  If you have a condition that will increase your likeliness of experiencing injuries or breathing issues, please ask us ahead of time if this is right for you. We also recommend you wear clothing that is not special to you.  Please do not wear your designer jeans, Ugg boots or anything of value since we are dealing with products that can damage or stain the material.  Stain, paint, saw dust and wax are always being passed around in a workshop environment, so choose wisely in your clothing selection!!

Do you offer refunds?

Due to the custom nature of our Studio workshops, registration fees are non-refundable.  Registration cancellations made at least 72 hours in advance of a workshop will be granted a class credit for a future workshop.

Do I have to pick my project ahead of time?

All of our workshops require pre-registration so that we can have adequate time to prep and customize your material.  Project selection and customization information for your project is required at the time of booking. Please be sure to double-check your spelling and information to ensure your project stencil and materials will be ready for you at the start of the workshop.

How do I make sure I am seated with my friends?

If you are coming with a group of friends, please list who you would like to be seated next to in the ‘comments section’ of the on line reservation form.

Can I bring my own wine?

Each of our Studios are regulated by different liquor rules and regulations, so some Studios sell alcoholic beverages and some are BYOB establishments.  Please contact your local Studio to determine what options are available to you.

Can I bring my own snacks or food?

Each of our Studios are regulated by different health inspection rules and regulations, so some Studios allow snacks and food to be brought in and some offer food for sale. Please contact your local Studio to determine what options are available to you.

Do I need to be crafty to take a Workshop?

No way!  Our workshops provide guided instruction in a relaxed environment.  Just bring your creativity and a willingness to learn and you will build a wooden décor piece from scratch that is worthy of your walls!

How long does a Workshop last?

We allow 3 hours for fun and creativity, however sometimes our workshops are finished prior to that time and sometimes when our guests are chatty we take a wee bit longer!

Do I need to tell you in advance what colors and stain I want to use?

No!  When you arrive we will show you examples of different stains and color palettes to help you decide what paints and stains will look the best in your home.  We have a wide variety of stain choices, paint colors and painting techniques to satisfy everyone’s eye for design!

Is there an age requirement to attend a Board & Brush workshop?

Yes. Due to the tools used, the stain, and our liquor license, infants and children under the age of 16 are not permitted in any of our Studios while a workshop is being held. If a participant brings an infant or child, they will be ask to rebook for a different workshop when they can attend ‘child’ free and enjoy the experience fully.

For children under the age of 16, we do offer the ability to book private children or teens parties! Contact your local studio for more information

Do you use environmentally safe products?

Most Board and Brush Creative Studios use environmentally friendly low VOC stains. Our designer paints are odor free water based products. We believe in providing industry proven materials that impact the earth as little as possible.

Do you allow custom design requests?

With so many signs to choose from in our gallery, we are confident that you will be able to find a sign that is right for you and your home. We understand that occasionally there are additional needs or desires.

Simple changes or substitutions of words within our standard designs can generally be made with no additional charges.  Significant changes to our standard designs or special requests for one off designs are considered custom and must be pre-approved by each individual studio. If approved, a customization fee of $25 will apply.

Does my finished sign need to look just like the photo on your gallery?

No! One of the great things about our workshops is your ability to customize your project right down to the stain and paint colors.

I see you request who I’d like to sit by when I register—are these requests guaranteed?

Sadly no. There are MANY variables that go into our seating arrangements. Though we will certainly do our best when deciding where each guest will sit, occasionally honoring a specific request just isn’t possible.

We hope you love our creative studio, enjoyed your experience and our beautiful designs.
