SIP & PAINT AT OUR WOOD SIGN WORKSHOPS

At Board & Brush in Surf City, 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 Surf City Owners

Yanessa & Preston Miller

Yanessa Miller is a former English/social studies teacher and teacher coach who recently left the classroom with more than a decade of teaching experience. She has always wanted to live in a world that smells perpetually of equal amounts of sawdust, coffee, and ocean air…so a Board & Brush in a beach town was the perfect fit! Yanessa has passions for teaching, creativity, problem-solving, and social media, all of which make owning a Board & Brush a dream job for her!

Preston Miller, who also happens to love the smell of sawdust, is equally as excited for their Board & Brush adventure! After graduating Old Dominion University, he has spent many years working at a world leader in energy management, supporting internet giants and high-tech companies. As an avid DIY-er, 3D printing fan, novice surfcast fisherman, Star Wars junkie, and a woodworking enthusiast, he always finds a way to keep busy!

Yanessa and Preston are so excited to welcome DIYers into their studio for workshops full of creativity, friendship, and fun!
