Commonly asked questions with answers

Do I need to be crafty to attend an event? 

Absolutely not! Our workshops provide skilled & guided instruction in a relaxed environment. Just bring your willingness to learn & you’ll transform unfinished pieces of wood into beautiful, personalized works of art!

What kind of stain and paint do you use? 

We use water base stain to avoid long drying times and strong odors.  Our paints are indoor/outdoor low-VOC & zero-VOC water based latex paints.

Can I bring my own snacks or food to your workshops?

Absolutely! Bring in your favorite beverage as well. There are no additional clean-up fees!

Does my finished project need to look like the project in the online gallery?

Of course not! One of the greatest things about our workshops is you are able to personalize your project right down to the background color & the colors of the design!

When can I host a Private Event?

We are flexible on dates and times.  We ask 90 minutes between workshops. Weeknight and weekend events are available. We will work with you to accommodate an ideal date and time for your group.

What is considered a custom design?

A custom design is something we do not currently have in our gallery or a design you would like to change significantly. Personalization on designs we currently offer is NOT considered custom and requires no additional fee.

Can you make something specific for me?

If you would like something created just for you, please choose the “custom design add-on” at check out. There is a $25 design fee that applies to public and private workshops. We cannot re-create any design copyrighted or protected under licensing agreements. All requests must be made 72 hours in advance. If you have additional questions, just send us an email.

Can I work on a project with another person? Yes, for sure.  Working hand in hand is a great way for couple to work on their chemistry.  Kiddos for sure will need help until they are about 10 or so.  When you are registering, just put in the comments, you will have another person joining so we can set up the table with enough seats for all.

Can I bring a younger crafter?  YES, unless specifically stated in our workshop heading.  Families are welcome to attend all Open Studios events, FAMILY FRIENDLY Wood Workshops, and any of our other special family events.

Prompt start time!! We ask that our makers arrive 15 minutes early to get comfortable in the space.  Workshops will start within 5 minutes after scheduled start times. The workshop, depending on your project may last 3 hours.

What happens if I cannot attend?  If you cannot make it, we understand, life HAPPENS.  We will work with you to reschedule.  Keep in mind we have already cut your stencil ahead of time, based on this we do not issue refunds once the stencil has been cut.
