SIP & PAINT AT OUR WOOD SIGN WORKSHOPS

At Board & Brush in Mitchell, 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 Mitchell Owner

Jennifer Shepherd

Jennifer has always loved working with her hands and creating. What began as a passion for custom invitations and cards eventually exploded into resin art, tumbler making, and pretty much anything else she could get her hands on! After discovering Board & Brush through a military caregiver group, Jennifer attended several workshops and quickly fell in love with the concept. She knew Board & Brush was a perfect fit for her family after moving to South Dakota, where there was nothing like it, and wanted a creative outlet and a connection to her community.

Jen and her husband were married in 2013 and have two wonderful boys who are out in the world on their own. Her husband served 15 years in the military and was deployed numerous times, with his last deployment ending in being struck by an IED, resulting in a spinal cord injury. Jennifer became his full-time caregiver, which kept her from the workplace and opened the door for her creative mind to take over. Board & Brush will now give her an opportunity to provide for her family and still be a caregiver for her husband. After surviving breast cancer two times, Jennifer is so thrilled to be able to start a new adventure and share her passion for Board & Brush with her community!
