Are you looking for a night out with friends? Is your inner DIY itching for a fun new project without having to buy all your own supplies and make a mess at your house? Then BOOK A CLASS at Board & Brush Creative Studio in Norfolk.
The Norfolk studio is centrally located in the greater Southern Virginia area known as Hampton Roads (comprised of “Seven Cities” including Virginia Beach, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Hampton and Newport News). Norfolk has a proud and deep history as a military town (home to the second largest naval base in the world). As you would imagine, they are completely surrounded by a wide variety of waterways including the Chesapeake Bay (with abundant blue crabs) the Atlantic Ocean and miles of beaches, and a crisscross of many rivers — so water is a big theme in our culture and lives. Ghent is actually Norfolk’s first planned community dating back to 1893 and the community is a charming mix of historic homes, new development and a vibrant and growing restaurant, shopping and entertainment scene. Ghent is just outside of downtown Norfolk, which has been experiencing a great resurgence as well.
At Board & Brush in Norfolk, 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!

Our space is uniquely set up to provide a warm, welcoming environment that allows everyone to feel comfortable and excited to create their own custom piece of décor.
Both Melinda and Scott have always had a creative streak. Melinda was an art minor at the University of Georgia and Scott studied film/media studies at the University of Buffalo. They’ve completed quite a few DIY projects from painting and restoring furniture to all sorts of design projects. They are on the verge of becoming empty nesters and were looking for a new way to direct those creative energies and meet new people. They came upon Board & Brush and knew immediately it was a perfect fit. They first met while working at same ad agency about 25 years ago and felt this would be a great time to go back to our roots. They love what the B&b brand represents and what it offers its customers in terms of a fun and rewarding creative experience.
Melinda is a southern girl raised in Portsmouth, VA and Scott was raised in the heart of New York City. While their backgrounds were very different, they shared a love of experiences! From travel to food to good times with friends and family, always with a good laugh involved. They have a 20-year-old daughter Zoey, who is studying to be a nurse practitioner at James Madison University. Their 17-year-old son loves his Ford F-150 and constantly being on the water either knee boarding, jet skiing, or fishing. Their home wouldn’t be complete without their rescue dog, Moses, who is the true ruler of our household. They are also puzzle nerds and love a good jigsaw puzzle.
Pick your preferred custom wood sign design, sign up for a DIY wood sign workshop that best works for you and your friends or family, and then show up for a fun, instructor led, hands-on experience.
