What To Expect
Never been to a wood and paint studio? No problem, you are not alone! Here is what's in store when you show up:
Both your wood and your customized stencil will be put on a work table at a saved spot. If you have requested to be near a friend, we will place their project next to you. We will provide you with an apron to protect your close, and we will have a designated area to place your personal items.
Once everyone is ready to go, we will start the class. Normally classes will last for 2 to 2.5 hours, while larger projects could last up to 3.5 hours.
Your instructor walks you through the completion of your project from start to finish. They will help you choose your stain and paint color options, and if you get confused about next steps, instructions are provided at each table and on the wall. We will help you through the entire workshop so if you ever have any questions or need help you need only ask. We are there to help!
PAINT. LAUGH. CREATE.
As the workshop continues, realize that not every person will be moving at the same speed. This is completely normal, so don't feel rushed. This is YOUR creation and YOUR experience so HAVE FUN, and be proud of your project! And remember, we are with you to help, so let us know if you have any questions or need any crafting tips!
When you have finished your awesome project you are free to go. If you are okay with it, we would love to take a picture of you and your work of art before you leave to add to our gallery!
Lastly, but mot importantly, we want to let you know how grateful we are for you hanging out with us, and we hope to see you again soon!

What a wonderful time we had at Hammer and Stain. More than just a DIY shop, they make it fun and exciting and at the end of the evening you get to take home a beautiful project. We're certainly going back for another evening of wood staining fun.

Had such a fabulous time hanging out with a girlfriend while making a cool new piece for my home! Megan was so helpful but at the same time let us work on our own so we could see we could do the project! Perfect amount of help and hands on/hands off! Can't wait to go back and do another project!

Alexa squeezed us in with under 2 hours until the class; the plans for my birthday fell through and she made sure that my birthday was still special. Talk about customer service!!!! Highly recommend! Plus, what you make is actually useable and pretty! I will be back for sure.

Such a great night!! Laura was amazing from welcoming us to explaining to process. It was so neat how the choices for design, stain and paint colors made it fit each persons style! They all looked so great! It is for those of all skill levels, both those crafty and not so crafty. I highly recommend this and will definitely be back! Thank you for so much fun!

Great place for a girls night! :) Or even a couples night. Three ladies brought their husbands and did their projects together as well! Fun time had by all. Everyone's project turned out wonderful. Very fair price too considering the space, materials, color options, and professional experience to make sure my project turned out just right!
