“We really pride ourselves on the fact that you don’t have to have any experience to come here,” Nguyen said. “You can be a total beginner. We will help you through the whole process. Everything is step by step.”
Craft options range from hand-painted door mats to wood signs, seasonal door hangers, coat racks, bottle openers and more. The workshops often involve more than simply painting, Tan said. Participants can sand and stain wood boards and have the option to use power tools and mallets to create a distressed look.
“Don’t feel intimidated,” Tan said. “We walk you through each step of the workshop. It’s a lot of fun for us to empower people to know that they can actually make something worth hanging up.”
Regular workshops take place Wednesday through Friday at 6:30 p.m., Saturday at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m., and Sunday at 1 p.m. Advance reservations are required and can be made online.
“Everybody gets to work on their own project,” Tan said. “If you want to come in and work on a wood sign and your spouse wants to paint a doormat, you could do that all within the same workshop.”
“Everything is personalized, so you really get to be as creative as you want,” Tan said. “If you have a place in your home for it, you can customize your project to fit your home decor.”
