Guests will be treated to free food, prizes including free classes, swag bags and beer and wine for purchase.

“We are so excited to be opening in Tipp City. We offer a fun, upbeat atmosphere where individuals or groups come in. We guide them through the process of creating their unique board from scratch, and they end up with a great quality product that they hang in their home or business. We offer products for adults, tweens, children and corporate groups. There is something for everyone and everyone finds their artistic abilities,” said Colleen Gilardi, studio owner

What started as a girl’s night out in Hartland, Wisconsin, with wine and crafts in the founder’s basement turned into a business idea and then a reality in March 2015. The founder of the company shares a passion for creating home decor and do-it-yourself projects. Woodworking techniques and skills combined with the latest trends and custom graphics is what created the Board & Brush Creative Studios concept.

Board & Brush offers a wide variety of hands-on experiences from workshops, private parties, bridal showers, bachelorette gatherings, children’s birthday bashes, corporate events, and fundraisers. All projects are a flat fee and include everything needed to create the artworks.
