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

Jeremy and Dana Rin use their love for homes and design to work in harmony and to share the Board & Brush experience with their community. Dana was an education major at the University of Northern Iowa and taught art at a private Christian Academy, while Jeremy has been in the construction industry for almost three decades. Together, Dana and Jeremy have worked in the home-building industry and have enjoyed collaborating and adding creative touches to custom homes.

When Dana's friend shared her experience of visiting a Board & Brush studio, Dana knew immediately that it would be a perfect fit! As a busy family with three kids, a flexible schedule was key. They love that Board & Brush allows people to create a unique piece of art and socialize with others, all while having fun! Aside from DIY, Jeremy and Dana love the Northern Boundary Waters, the salty water of the ocean, and snow-capped mountains.
