In order to ensure a streamlined process the night of the party, all designs must be pre-selected. Please choose one of the four designs offered when registering for the party.

ALL DESIGNS take a minimum of six days prior to a scheduled event to create, cut and prep. Although the signs have all been comped, each attendee is required to register on this website in order to allow the workshop leader to prepare the materials for each sign.



In order to attend and have a sign ready to paint, at the party, you MUST register on this website and choose your design no later than September 11. If an attendee does not register via the website, there will be no materials prepared for that person.



Please do everything you can to arrive on time to give yourself time to visit a bit, grab some wine and cheese, choose your paint colors and settle in to paint.

Instruction and painting will start promptly at 6:30 pm. The average time to complete your sign is 2-3 hours. During that time you will be staining your board (several colors to choose from), lightly sanding, applying your stencil, and painting your design (even more colors to choose from.)

Throughout the entire process, I will be walking you through each step, helping you use proper technique, and answering any questions you have. The stain and paint I use is water-based, odor-free and dries very quickly. We provide aprons but they don't cover everything. The paint will easily wash off your hands with just water, but it WILL stain your clothes, so please dress accordingly.
