Welcome to the Oswego
DIY Wood Sign Workshop!

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 Oswego.

About 50 miles southwest of Chicago, Oswego is located along the Fox River in Kendall County. Oswego has a small-town character while still offering big-city attractions, restaurants, and shopping. Oswego is a wonderful place to raise a family as it was featured in CNN/Money Magazine’s article: Top 100 Best Towns. Oswego offers tons of fun festivals throughout the year like the Drag Strip Days, Prairie Fest, Wine on the Fox, and the Christmas Walk.

Board & Brush Oswego is a licensed establishment, beer and wine are available for purchase in the studio.

Please note, BYOB is not permitted.

Meet Board & Brush Oswego Owners
Katie & Mike Ilic

After graduating from the University of Illinois, Katie started her career as high school math teacher at Neuqua Valley in Naperville where she also coached the sophomore volleyball team. Eight years later, she left the classroom behind to stay at home with her daughter when she was born. She traded in calculators and lecturing for diapers and sleepless nights! Mike attended NIU and will always be a Husky at heart. He is now a Senior Manager at Accenture, specializing in IT Test Architecture.

Katie & Mike attended a workshop for their anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed their experience. They were immediately hooked and knew that a business, like Board & Brush, would be perfect for their family. Katie’s passion is teaching and Mike is a DIY junkie. Owning and operating a Board & Brush studio is not only an exciting new adventure but also gives them the flexibility to spend more time together as a family. It hardly feels like working when you love what you do every day!

Katie and Mike met on a blind date back in 2011, and the rest was history. Family is their number one priority. Katie has a small, close-knit family and Mike has a huge (and loud!) 100% Croatian family. Their daughter Emma was born in 2016, and she is the light of their lives. Some of their favorite things to do are to take their two Yorkie puppies for walks around the neighborhood, spend summer days at the pool, make dinner together, and snuggle up with a good movie.
