FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I make more than one project at a workshop? Because of time constraints and the nature of how our DIY workshops run, we limit each person to one project at a time during a scheduled workshop.  We are always adding more dates and workshop projects, please check back with us often to schedule!
Can I bring a friend with me if they are not working on a project? Unfortunately, because of a limited amount of seating and fire code, we are unable to admit any person who has not reserved a spot in our workshop. 
What are the prices for a workshop? Prices for each workshop are based on the type of workshop being offered. Typically, prices range in price from $35 to $75 depending on the options you choose.
What is the age limit?  Our public workshops at our Downtown Kirkland location are:  Evening Sessions:  18+ years.  Morning/Afternoon Sessions:  13+ years.  Note:  Our workshops at our Seattle-Fremont District location are always 21+.

Do I have to pick my project ahead of time? Yes. Project selection and customization information for your project is required at the time of booking on our on-line registration form. Please be sure to double-check your spelling and information to ensure your project stencil (for wood workshops) and materials will be ready for you at the start of your workshop.

Do you offer refunds? Due to the custom nature of our workshops, registration fees are non-refundable. Registration cancellations made at least 48 hours in advance of a workshop will be granted a FULL class credit for a future workshop (within 90 days). Cancellations made with 24 to 48 hours notice will be granted a HALF credit. Cancellations made less than 24 hours notice will not be granted a credit, however, you may pick up your project to complete at home anytime after the scheduled workshop.

Do I need to tell you in advance what colors and stain I want to use on a wood project?   No, we have a wide variety of paint colors and stains to choose from. When you arrive we will show you examples of different color palettes to help you decide which paints and stains will look the best in your home.

How long does a workshop last? The length of each workshop depends on the type of workshop scheduled. The typical workshop lasts 2-3 hours.

What do I wear?  While we provide aprons, we recommend wearing something you wouldn't mind getting paint on - just in case!

Do I need to be crafty or artistically talented to take a workshop? Definitely NOT! Our workshops provide guided instruction in a relaxed environment. Just bring your DIY attitude and a willingness to learn and you will create a project you will be proud of!

Can I bring my own beer or wine?  We have an excellent assortment of wine by the glass/bottle, beer on tap, hard cider, and non-alcoholic beverages for purchase throughout the session.  Due to Washington Liquor Laws, no outside beverages are allowed to be brought in to the studio.  (No BYOB).  Must be 21+ with valid I.D.to purchase alcoholic beverages.

How do I make sure I am seated with my friends? If you are coming with a group of friends, please list who you would like to be seated next to in the "comments section" of the online reservation form.  We're happy to seat you all together.  (Group of 6?  Reserve a table - No additional charge).

Your projects are ready to take with you at the end of the workshop. Hammer & Stain is not responsible for any projects left after the workshop.
