Board & Brush

Welcome to the Columbia
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 Columbia.

Columbia is part of Howard County, MD and is located half-way between Baltimore, MD and Washington DC. Columbia was founded by James Rouse based on human values instead of focusing on economics and engineering. Opened in 1967, Columbia was intended to not only eliminate the inconveniences of then-current subdivision design, but also eliminate racial, religious and class segregation. Columbia consistently ranks in the top 10 of Money Magazines best places to live. Columbia is home to many local breweries - Black Flag, Hysteria and Lost Ark Distillery and great restaurants - Aida Bistro, Stanford Grill, and Center Park Grill. Columbia is very family oriented and offers many recreational activities including Terrapin Adventure Park, Ninja Be Indoor Obstacle Course, and kayaking and paddle boarding at Centennial Lake.

SIP & PAINT AT OUR WOOD SIGN WORKSHOPS

At Board & Brush in Columbia, 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 Columbia Owner

Diane DeSantis

Diane DeSantis is excited to become a business owner for the first time. Diane has always been creative focused on arts and crafts. Diane works full time as a Controller for an all-girls private school in Baltimore.  She also designs and creates competition dance costumes in her spare time. Diane took her first Board & Brush workshop in February of 2017 and was hooked immediately! She brought her husband to his first class the following month and although he tried to not look like he was having a great time, he really got into his project. It has been hanging on the kitchen wall since the minute he got home! From the first call with Board & Brush to Discovery Day, Diane has been impressed with the whole Board & Brush team and connected immediately with the products, philosophy and goals.
