- How long does a workshop last?
Typically a workshop lasts 3-4 hrs. (However, due to the layering of paints or stains, additional drying time may be required.)

No. Due to health inspection rules and regulations, we do not offer food. However, we invite you to bring your own favorite snacks and beverages.
- What is an open workshop?
During open workshops, only select projects will be available. Walk-ins are welcome! Pre-registration is highly preferred but not required.
- What do I wear?
Wear comfortable clothing and keep in mind that you will be painting, hammering and sanding. Aprons are available. However, aprons may not protect from all stains and paints.
- Can my friend come and help?
Due to limited space in our workshop, NO project sharing permitted, unless the workshop has been designated as a project share workshop. Invite them to register and make a project of their own.

Due to the materials used during the workshops, no children under the age of sixteen are permitted unless workshop is designated for children. We do offer Children's Workshops for birthday parties and other special events, just click on the Children's Workshop tab for more info.
- What kind of wood do you use?
We use wood from local suppliers. All of the wood used in our workshop is pre-cut. Naturally, there are knots and impressions in the wood and not all of the pieces are perfectly straight or shaped. Please note that due to unique personalization, your design may vary slightly from the examples seen on our website or social media pages.We sometimes (not always) have some extra boards on hand if you would like to swap one out, but please keep in mind that these designs are meant to have a beautiful rustic/shabby chic/antique look.
