SIP & PAINT AT OUR WOOD SIGN WORKSHOPS
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!
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 Norfolk Owners
Melinda & Scott Vooss
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.
