Board and Brush Creative Studio: Redlands

Board & Brush Creative Studio's goal is to turn you into a “DIY master” by educating you to understand and appreciate the beauty of raw materials—the wood, the knots, the color variations, and the simple imperfections that will make your project unique. Distressing, sanding with the grain, and staining are a few of the important steps they will guide you through to make your personalized wood sign look as though it has been with you for years—like a vintage heirloom.

Board & Brush is the place to go to create beautiful and fun home (or office) décor. Owner Donna Hoffman opened the studio in September, 2019, helping people make winsome and inspirational wooden signs. She also has backyard games – giant jenga, dice, dominoes, and tic-tac-toe – which can be personalized with homeowners’ names. New designs arrive monthly. Just out is a “porch planter” which is a wooden box one can customize to display a live or artificial plant on a porch, patio, or even indoors. Donna has also created exclusive Redlands signs, available for purchase at the Redlands Visitor Center.

Donna and her staff offer classes as well as pick-your-project workshops on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Private parties at the studio (currently for 6-8 people, but will expand when businesses can fully open) can also be booked. Both classes and parties are adults only (age 21 or older) due to liquor license laws. Customers can also purchase at-home DIY kits with more than 100 designs from which to choose. At Board and Brush, you pick what you want to do and leave with a creation you’re happy with.

Come in and make your favorite sign in any stain and paint colors you want, or, if you prefer, Donna and staff can make it for you.

Holiday décor classes, such as wreaths and ornaments, for both Christmas and Hannukah, are currently being offered. Workshop information and registration is on the website. Pictures of projects are also on the website under Gallery, then click on Shop to purchase an item, DIY class, or DIY home kit.
