WHAT DO WE DO?
We are a mobile DIY Workshop. Never heard of a mobile DIY workshop before? No worries, let us explain. We'll bring the pARTy to you, and together we will give you all the tools and supplies you need to turn unfinished wood into a beautiful, personalized piece of home decor.
-We are currently solely mobile, with hopes of eventually opening a local studio. For now, we are traveling the Gloucester and greater Hampton Roads area for Private Parties as well as Public Workshops at local venues.
Here is what to expect:
-We bring all of the paint/stain, supplies, tables, and creativity coach to lead the way! We set up, teach, clean up, and even take the trash with us!
-You will arrive to find your pre-ordered wood and personalized vinyl stencil along with a bag of supplies, and an apron to protect your clothing.
-Once everyone has settled in, we will begin. A typical class will last for 2.5-3 hours. Larger pieces and furniture projects may last up to 3.5 hours.
-Our Creativity Coach will guide you through the process, from start to finish. We will also help you with the selection of stain and paint color options. If you get lost, written instructions are provided at the center of each table. We will be hands-on throughout the entire workshop, but if at any time you have questions or need help, please let us know! We are there to HELP YOU!!
PAINT. LAUGH. CREATE.
As the workshop progresses, know that not everyone will be moving at the same pace. This is normal – don’t compare yourself to anyone else. This is YOUR project and YOUR experience! HAVE FUN, ENJOY YOURSELF, and BE PROUD of your creation! Again, we are there to help. So, if you have questions or need a hand with your project, let us know!
When you have finished your project, you are free to go! BUT before you go, and if you are up for it, we’d love to get a picture of you with your project for our gallery!
Last, but certainly, not least … we are so grateful to you for joining a workshop, and supporting our local small business. We hope to see you again very soon!
What Our Makers Are Saying

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.
Amanda E. Southern Pines, NC
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!
