SIP & PAINT AT OUR WOOD SIGN WORKSHOPS
At Board & Brush in Santa Barbara, 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 Santa Barbara Owners
Rachael Krieps & Kelly Almeida
Rachael and Kelly share a love for people and art, which brought them together when they worked at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. Through a decade of working side by side and building a lifelong friendship, the two ambitious entrepreneurs discovered they had complementary skill sets. Rachael and Kelly decided to combine their dream of being business owners and their passion for creativity by taking a leap of faith and opening their own Board & Brush Creative Studio. Their cheerful, social, and easy-going personalities are a perfect match for Board & Brush, where relaxing and having fun are a must in all workshops!
When they aren’t busy working by day and DIY’ing by night, both Rachael and Kelly enjoy traveling, great food, dancing, and spending time with their friends and families; especially their husbands (Charles and Dee) and adorable doggies (CoCo and Kobe)! Rachael and Kelly's educational backgrounds, unique professional experiences, and outgoing personalities guarantee the ultimate Board & Brush experience!
