Looking for a fun, unique activity to do with your friends or family? With one of our DIY workshops, you can host a virtual party from the comfort of your home during this shelter-in-place situation we’re all facing. Prior to your party, I handle all the prep work, individually ship a kit to each guest, and provide a link to a virtual meeting set for the day and time chosen. Each kit includes a pre-assembled frame, a ready-to-paint board, wood stain, several colors of paint, and a list of just a few household items each guest will need so that everyone can create their own custom sign. All guests will pay for and select their design ahead of time. On the day of the workshop, your guests simply show up (virtually) ready to make a custom sign! I will walk everyone through step-by-step how to stain, apply the stencil, paint, and make it your own.
How long does a workshop last?
Workshops typically last 2-3 hours. It is important for guests to be set up and in the virtual meeting on time to ensure there is enough time for paints to dry in between coats.
How many guests can attend?
Minimum of 4 guests up to any number of guests! The more the merrier!
How much does it cost?
Our virtual workshops are $40 per person. This includes most supplies and a step-by-step virtual tutorial.
What type of payment methods do you accept?
To secure your date, please use the "Book a Workshop" link on this page. Once booked, I will send out a personalized link you can share with your guests where you and they can select a design and remit payment. I also accept payment via PayPal, Venmo, and Apple Pay if needed. Please contact us for alternate payment methods. (Please note, your workshop date and time is secured upon payment remittance.)
Where are your workshops located?
In the comfort of your own home! During this shelter-in-place situation we’re all facing, I am now offering fully virtual workshops. Because of the virtual aspect, guests can be located anywhere in the United States!
What is needed for a virtual workshop?
You and your guests will each need a covered workspace such as a kitchen table or desk, a computer or phone with internet connection, and a select few household items that will be noted in the kit each person receives.
What safety precautions are you taking during preparation?
Because of the sensitive nature of our world right now, all materials are prepared using gloves. All supplies provided are brand new and are also handled using gloves.
When can virtual workshops be held?
Workshop availability is 11am – 7pm (PST) seven days a week for the time being. (Wanting a time outside these hours? Let me know and I’ll try to accommodate you!)
How do guests select their designs?
Prior to the workshop, I will send out a personalized link with design options and purchasing instructions so that each attendee can select and pay for their own designs. I will provide guests with several design options to choose from. I ask that guests select and pay for their chosen designs at least two weeks prior to the date of the workshop, to ensure enough time for preparation and shipping. (At this time, I am not offering personalized designs. However, if you have a special occasion and want to offer a custom design for your guests, please contact me and I will do my best to accommodate your request.)
What should guests wear?
Because guests will be working with wood stain and paints, I suggest wearing comfortable, dark colored clothing and possibly an apron if you have one. (Please note: Palette & Pine is not responsible for any clothing items that may be stained during the sign making process.)
What about food and drink?
I encourage hosts and/or guests to have drinks and snacks nearby. This is a party after all! There will be plenty of time in between steps to grab refreshments or drink refills.
What do the finished signs look like?
Finished signs measure approximately 9.5" x 9.5" x 1.5" (including the frame). Included in each kit will be several paint colors to choose from. Check out the gallery below to see what some finished signs have looked like.
