SIP & PAINT AT OUR WOOD SIGN WORKSHOPS
At Board & Brush in Hiawatha, 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 Hiawatha Owners
Dana & Jeremy Rinkenberger
Together Jeremy and Dana ARE Board & Brush. Dana was an education major at the University of Northern Iowa and was able to teach art in a private Christian Academy. Jeremy has been in the construction industry for almost three decades, which included owning a framing company and for the last fifteen years building custom homes. Together Dana and Jeremy complete the building process by sharing creative collaboration and enjoy adding new trends to the custom homes. When Dana’s friend called from Indiana with her recent experience of visiting a Board & Brush, she knew immediately that this was going to be a perfect fit. As a busy family with three kids, needing a flexible schedule was key. They love what the Board & Brush brand represents. Creating a unique piece of custom art and sharing the experience with others, all while having fun! Dana was born and raised in the heart of Iowa, in Cedar Rapids. Jeremy moved to the area as a middle schooler. They use their love for houses and design to work in harmony and are so excited to share the Board & Brush experience with everyone. They love the Northern Boundary Waters, the salty water of the ocean and snow-capped mountains to ski. They have a twenty-year old daughter Riley, who is finishing her schooling at the AVEDA Institute. Their sixteen-year old son Bryce, loves golf, trap shooting and skiing. Their youngest child who keeps them laughing is twelve-year old Ali. She is involved with many sports, plays competitive softball and travels with her volleyball club team. If that wasn’t enough, the family has two fuzzy dogs…Chewie who is a ShihTzu and Norman, a Mini Golden Doodle. You can find Norman hanging out in the studio with Dana.
