About the Course
Come and enjoy an evening 6.30pm to 9.30pm making wonderful rustic signs. Whether you are on your own or with friends you are sure to feel comfortable in my cosy studio in Middlesbrough.
The session consists of staining or painting your wooden piece that will be your sign. You will then be guided through how the stencil is applied and how to choose colours that suit your base colour best. You can then use your creative freedom to create your piece of wall art. I will be there throughout to help you feel comfortable or assist in anyway possible. Unlimited tea coffee juice and biscuits throughout the session with a host of fun and laughter. All abilities welcome.
I have 30 years experience working with people of all ability levels. I spent 20 years in Social Care and 10 years as a Paramedic so nothing phases me. This activity suits people from the age of 2 to 102 so give it a go. It is being described as an alternative to mindfulness so relax and craft to your hearts content!! Sign designs are chosen after booking on the workshop. 100's to choose from no bespoke designs available at this time.

Went with some friends, Shelley guided us through every stage of making the sign and we were all happy with the results, ahe even does flat pack kits (lol) with all instructions so you can do them at home. Once again a big thank you to Shelley.

Spent a lovely afternoon with friends making Christmas signs. They all turned out fabulous, Shelly was patient and helpful. A really lovely way to spend a few hours and something to take away that will last forever. I was hooked from that start and will be back. I can thoroughly recommend this for a group of friends. Or go on your own to one of the open days. You will get a warm welcome.

Love love love this little business. First tried sign making on a friends evening and had a great time and my sign is fab... Thoroughly enjoyed the whole process. Instruction was fairly easy and the end result is proudly placed where everyone can see it. I’ve since been to do another one within the workshop and I’m hoping to continue... It’s such a tactile item, functional, funny, heartfelt and fun to do and Shelly is patient, gives great knowledgable advice and goes above and beyond to make everyone have a special time.... support this little venture cos it’s brill..

I went with my daughter on a Mum & Me workshop. We both felt really welcome. We were given instructions before each stage and shown what to do at each stage. Help was offered if we needed it and lots of encouragement given. I would recommend going, my daughter even wants to book for her birthday party later in the year.

Shelly took her time to make the children welcome.She spent the right amount of time and support for each of my 3 children, enabling them to make wonderful signs. Also to get the right signs for my 10 and 12 year old boys.... music related.

I’ve attended several workshops with Shelly over the last 12 months and can honestly say they are amazing! Shelly is very knowledgeable about her craft, and teaches in such an amazing down to earth way that everyone can understand and participate - even my disabled 80year old aunt! I can’t recommend Rustic Wood Design Studio highly enough!! Along with attending workshops I’ve also bought her Crafty Takeaway kits for myself, my kids and to give as gifts. The fun in making your own wooden sign, then proudly displaying it in your home knowing you made that just can’t be beat, much better than just buying one!

I attended this class with my 9 yr old step daughter in the school holidays. I enjoyed it just as much as Liv!!!
Shelley was fantastic, we both thoroughly enjoyed the sign making and it was brilliant doing something abit different. I’d totally recommend this to adults and children of all ages.
I will definitely be going back
Well worth every penny!!!!
