How to Host a Party
Gather some friends and join us for a fun evening or creative fun! We make everything from Family signs, funny quotes, kids room signs, porch signs and more. You don't need to be crafty or artistic! If you can follow instructions, you're halfway there!
At our events we will walk you through the steps to create your sign. We have several options available but you can also create a custom piece.
All supplies are provided to complete your sign from start to finish. You will receive a blank board and the stencil you chose. Your sign is completely customized by you. You choose the paint colors for the words and backgrounds. We can guide you on color selection and of course you will have your friends there to give their opinions as well!!
Our workshops usually run 2-2.5 hours. Since everyone makes their own thing, the time of each class varies. The color selection takes the most time so try to think a bit ahead on what colors you'd like to use just to speed up the process a bit. Some may finish a little earlier -- it all depends on the complexity of your sign. We have a great variety of sizes and It takes a lot longer to make a large sign than it does to make a small one.

There are many signs available on the website but I can also do custom Requests.

Same day cancellations or no-shows will NOT get a credit for a future workshop! Please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to cancel. If you do not show up for a workshop that you have a spot reserved, you forfeit your payment.
HOSTESS RESPONSIBILITIES - As a hostess you are responsible for securing a date and time by booking the party.. It is up to you for the location whether it would be your house or a venue, have enough tables and chairs for your guests. A table for me to display the paint and stain. Remind everyone to register before the deadline (7 days before the party) and, inform guests that the party is for registered guest only. As the event gets closer remind the guests that have registered when and where the event is located and remind them to arrive a few minutes early so that we can start on time and keep everyone on the same steps. I usually create an event on my Facebook page so we can use that or you can set up a separate event for private parties. Refreshments are at your discretion.
SETUP/TEARDOWN I will arrive between 30-45 minutes prior to start of event (depending on size of group), and all tables/chairs should be setup BEFORE I arrive. I will provide table covers and all supplies. Tear-down will take approx 30 minutes as well. We do require access to running water to clean brushes afterwards.
