SIP & PAINT AT OUR WOOD SIGN WORKSHOPS

At Board & Brush in Big Bear Lake, 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 Big Bear Lake Owners

Lexi Amrhein & Zack Gatlin

Zack and Lexi both grew up in the Big Bear Valley and have a deep love for their hometown. After graduating high school, Lexi completed her undergraduate degree at Cal State Northridge and later went on to finish graduate school at University of San Francisco. Zack completed an apprenticeship program with the carpenters union and went on to lead several large-scale construction projects throughout California. After leaving Big Bear to pursue college and career opportunities, Zack and Lexi found themselves missing the small-town lifestyle and eventually moved home to settle down. It wasn't long before they started looking for new ways to connect with their community and meet new people! With Zack's background in carpentry and Lexi's education and creativity, Board & Brush is a perfect fit!

Zack and Lexi enjoy hiking, kayaking, and camping with their two dogs Ellie and Hank, and volunteering with local nonprofits.
