Board and Brush Creative Studio 

Board and Brush is a creative studio that specializes in making DIY wood signs for all of life’s occasions. It currently has 235 locations across the country, including four local locations: Carmel, Noblesville, Greenwood, and Brownsburg.

The studio got its start in its founders basement, which catered more so to “Girls Night Out” themes, complete with wine, crafts and camaraderie. Over the years, it’s slowly grown into the nationwide brand that it is today across the country.


The main workshop the creative studio hosts is its Pick Your Project Workshop. The Board and Brush team aims to turn its patrons into “DIY Masters” through its classes, educating participants on the raw materials needed to make the wood signs, such as the wood, knots, color variants and even the imperfections. Instructors take the class through the steps needed to distress, sand the grain, and staining needed to make personalized wood signs. With the instructor’s assistant, the end product is a personalized wood sign that looks as if it’s been with you for years, almost like a vintage heirloom.

The studio offers a variety of classes that cater to a range of ages, including kids, teens and adults. Wood sign making classes are held almost every Friday through Sunday, with the occasional specialty workshop happening during the week.

The most common workshop, Pick Your Project Workshop, is $73 and teaches participants how to create their own unique wood sign. The studio provides all the material and instructions to make the sign, and pre-registration is required.

The creative studio has also hosted a Porch Planter Workshop, Glass Etching and Wood Workshop, and a Doormat Workshop. More information about the Carmel studio and its offering is available at
