My name is Ashley Beek. I am the owner and designer at Design 563, a DIY Home Decor Workshop business I run from my home in Decorah, IA. I am a full time computer analyst in real life and have two littles, ages 5 and 7.
I have been running Itty Bitty Iowa Designs and Marketplace as a side hobby since 2009, when I graduated Luther College. October 2016, I opened Entangled Wood Designs an in-home string art party business with my friend Stephanie. I have loved the private party and hands on with my customers and after encouragement from others I was prompted to start Design 563 for painting and wood signs.
Our classes are perfect for girls night out, date night, mommy & me days or even birthday parties! We offer string art and painted sign classes. All prep work is completed by me. Everything is 100% handmade and unique, no two pieces will be exactly the same.
I provide step-by-step instructions and help you create your masterpiece along the way, but don't worry there is plenty of room to make your sign unique and all your own! Our classes are so much fun and are an awesome way to bring your Pinterest ideas to life!
Currently we are offering hand painted wood signs in various custom designs. We have over 50 styles to choose from. If none of our signs speak to you, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the sign you had in mind! We make all of our own designs, so please message us if you want a custom design created just for you.
Classes typically take anywhere from 2-3 hours, and we encourage the hostess to provide drink and appetizers for guests, but it is completely optional.
If you would like to host one of our Sign Parties, we are offering double hostess rewards for parties booked in September 2017. Request information on a private event by completing our Private DIY Workshop Party Application.
