Wicked Rustic Workshops LLC is a Massachusetts based business founded in 2016. We offer rustic wood painting workshops in homes and at local restaurants around the North Shore and Greater Boston area. Started by two young mothers as an opportunity to not only get ourselves out of the house, but get other mom's and women out of the house and have a simple yet fun social experience all while creating something they can be truly proud of! We are building our company on empowering women, by providing a laid back social crafting atmosphere led by positive, upbeat, and motivating instructors. With our instruction led flexible scheduling, we are able to hire women from all walks of life... wives, moms, teachers. We are just a couple of mom's wanting to support other women in balancing life and find a passion and fire in doing something they love!
My name is Laura and I am one of TWO amazing co-owners of this fun and up and coming company! I am a designer, self-proclaimed hands on DIY crafter, wife to my amazing and handy husband John, mommy to three beautiful children and lover of all things rustic! I have designed custom built, rustic and distressed wooden décor for several years. I absolutely love finding new, exciting and simple ways to make beautiful rustic pieces. I cannot wait to share my tips with all of you, to make this a fun and stress free wood sign painting experience!
My name is Kristen and I am the second co-owner of The Rustic Brush. I wear many hats as most moms’ do today; mom, wife, editor, housekeeper, cook, organizer, negotiator… the list goes on! If I had to describe myself with 3 words they would be – Organized, Passionate, and Driven. I absolutely LOVE to explore new ideas, so when Laura reached out to me about this thought that was floating around in her head, I said “heck yeah let’s go for it!” With my organizational skills, Laura’s amazing artistic eye, and our mutual love for rustic, distressed wooden décor, we have created something we are so proud of and passionate about! I cannot wait to share the Wicked Rustic experience with you :)
Our wood painting workshops are a casual, low stress environment but an opportunity to be creative in a social crafting atmosphere. We offer several public workshops a month at local restaurants around the North Shore, as well as in-home private workshops. We offer a variety of wooden media, and are constantly adding designs to our gallery and new wooden platforms! We can't wait to create with you!
