Here, we hope to answer some commonly asked questions about the studio

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 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 the wording or orientation of. Personalization on designs we currently offer is NOT considered custom and requires no additional ticket. Simply put your personalized information in the personalization box provided at registration.

What kind of paint do you use? 

We are proud to say that we use low-VOC & zero-VOC water based interior (latex) paint.

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!

Do you ship your signs?

Creative Grain Studio can ship directly to you or ship the sign as a gift to your desired address. Our signs make wonderful gifts!  Just submit the online form with the details of where you need the sign shipped. Shipping will be included in the invoice & once that is paid, we will begin working your project. It will be shipped with package tracking as well.

Do you offer military discounts? 

Please send us an email at for more information.

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 that you are able to personalize your project right down to the background color & the colors of the design!

What is the price per person for private events?

There are 2 types of workshops to choose from both varying in size and price. Please refer to the Private Events page for more details. We do not have group discounts.

When can I host a Private Event?

We are flexible on dates and times. We try to hold just one workshop per day, per studio, but exceptions are made. We ask 90 minutes between workshops. Weeknight and weekend events are available, but act quickly because we schedule public workshops on weekends. We will work with you to accommodate an ideal date and time for your group.

Okay, I’m ready to book a Private Event. What’s my next step?

Workshops are based on a first come, first serve basis. Please read all available information on setting up an event before contacting us to reserve your date. Dates will not be saved by request, a deposit is required to save your date.

​We do our absolute best to ensure your event on your desired date, but please note, we reserve the right to deny a date request regardless of calendar availability due to outside personal obligations (travel, events, holiday/family commitments).

Please visit our Private Workshops Page to submit the request form.

​Upon receipt of this information, a Paypal invoice will be emailed to you. You have 24 hours to complete the deposit and your workshop will be on the calendar within 48 hours, ready for registrations!

I’d like to see “this” as an option!

We are always open to suggestions! If you’d like to suggest a design that you would like to see in our studio, please send us an email with the subject line – “idea!” We cannot guarantee your sign will show up in the gallery.

Can you make something specific for me?

If you would like something created just for you, please choose the “custom Design add-on” ticket at check out. There is a $20 design fee that applies to public and private workshops. We will cannot re-create any design that is copyrighted or protected under licensing. All requests must be made 72 hours in advance. If the “add on” ticket is not available on a workshop’s ticketing, it is not available.
