About the event


Do you love a welcoming porch or front door display? How would you like to learn to make your OWN front porch welcome sign,  and take it home with you? Learn the fundamentals of this hand made sign project from start to finish in this instructional class led by pro painter and owner of The Rusty Gate, Susie Myres . We will cover all the steps with hands-on application, and you will leave class with a beautiful 4 ft tall porch sign that YOU design and create!  With the information and techniques you will learn in this class, you will learn the basics of painting or vinyl letering, stenciling and sealcoating your design.  I will walk you through the entire process and we will have a BLAST doing it. The class consists of base coat painting, hand stenciling, letter painting OR Vinyl transfer (depending on your design) and embellishment. Choose from a variety of colors to paint your design over a stained natural wood color.  Choose your lettering colors and get creative with ribbon and floral embellishment! We will have stamps, stencils and free form decoration available for you to choose.  3 Hr class is $54, and you will take your masterpiece home.
