Participants may choose either a JOY or NOEL sign when signing up. For those making the JOY sign, the O in JOY may be replaced by a holiday symbol – star, ornament, snowflake – on the night of the workshop. The boards will be put together for you beforehand; you will stain or paint the sign background and then stencil on your chosen design during this festive workshop. The $48 registration fee includes all materials.
