Board & Brush

Welcome to the South Austin
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 WORKSHOP at Board & Brush Creative Studio in South Austin.

Austin is known for being the Live Music Capital of the World, hosting music festivals such as Austin City Limits and South by Southwest annually.  Austin is home to some of the best BBQ.  The city is home to 205 parks, 14 nature preserves and more than 50 miles of hiking and biking trails.  There are rivers for kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and a spring-fed swimming hole at Barton Springs Pool and even a grotto with a 45-foot waterfall at Hamilton Pool. Austin is also home to hundreds of thousands of Mexican free tailed bats.  From March to October, each night, 20 minutes before sunset, the bats emerge from under the Ann W. Richards Congress Avenue Bridge and take to the evening sky.

SIP & PAINT AT OUR WOOD SIGN WORKSHOPS

At Board & Brush in South Austin, 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!

Greg & Nicole Gilchrist

Nicole has been a stay at home mom since moving from California to Texas in 2006. Greg was an IT manager for the past 15 years and is currently the Global Head of Application Support for an Austin energy trading company. After moving to Texas in 2006, they lived in Houston for eight years and moved to Austin three years ago. They have two beautiful daughters who are ten and twelve. They are also extremely excited about the new studio and cannot wait until they are old enough to work at Board & Brush!


Nicole loves to host gatherings and parties at their home and many of her friends said she should open her own party planning business.  After attending a Board & Brush workshop in Cedar Park for her birthday, she fell in love with the Board & Brush concept. She realized that this was something she had to do and opened Board & Brush Dripping Springs.  She is excited to open her second studio Board & Brush South Austin!
