Dates will be posted here for upcoming workshops.
Have you been wishing for a custom sign? Maybe you've been wanting a sign in your own choice of colours or you've had a specific saying you've wanted to use. Or, maybe you've always wanted your own custom family sign...
Since I'm not longer taking custom sign orders, now's your chance to actually get your own customized sign. Attend one of Netties Expressions Wooden Sign Painting Workshops to create a wooden sign of your choice.
Ask your sister(s) or a friend or friends to join you. Do a mother/daughter evening or get your significant other to join you. Spend an evening with 3 other people just like yourself who want to paint a sign. There will be both homemade food and drinks prepared by myself, for you to enjoy during the evening.
I will be there to teach you and walk you through the process of painting your own sign each step of the way. You will leave with a beautiful finished sign which you can be proud of. Each sign is painted uniquely by YOU and is 100% beautiful because you put your heart and soul into it.

Fill out this form below to get in touch with me to book a spot in a sign painting workshop. I will be in touch with you shortly after receiving your request.
Netties Expressions evening FAT Paint workshops start at 7pm and generally take 2 - 2.5 hours from start to finish.
The workshop(s) will be held in my home until I can find a more permanent solution. There will be 4 seats available per workshop. I prefer smaller workshops as it allows me to give more one-on-one time to each participant if needed.
If you're interested in hosting a private workshop at a different location, please contact me.
These signs will not be painted freehand. My wooden sign workshops are done with stencils which I have designed and cut myself. This allows anyone to paint a beautiful sign.
The fee includes EVERYTHING which you need to paint a sign. I supply the wood, stencil(s), FAT paint, brushes, sandpaper, painters tape, hanging hardware, apron(s), etc. All you have to bring is yourself and the enthusiasm to paint a sign. :)
Aprons are provided although I don't recommend wearing your best clothing.
The wood used for your sign depends on the size you pick. The large framed wooden signs are made from 3/4" GIS plywood (good one side) and framed with a pine frame. All the other signs are made from pine. Either way, your sign is an all wood sign which means it will be a little bit heavy.
In this workshop you will paint your own rustic wooden sign. If you choose a large framed sign, remeber that thehe frame adds approximately 0.5" to each side of the sign.
Netties Expressions workshops are held in a smoke free/alcohol free environment.
