Here's how it works

  • Pick your workshop type and date.
  • Invite your friends to take the fun up a peg!
  • Wait patiently...or not. This is a great time to find the perfect wine pairing.
  • PARTY DAY! Attend the workshop you've been waiting for...100% of supplies are included. Choose from our original designs and dozens of colors.
  • Get hammer(ed/ing). Start crafting and create fun memories you can take home with you!

Not a party person? Try our at-home DIY Kits for all ages or request a ready to hang art piece (they make great gifts).
