Wine, Women & Wood 7-22 and 7-23 (2020): Outdoor Chess Board Table

This is a TWO-EVENING workshop due to the drying time required between applying glue (day 1) and grout (day 2).

Where & When

2290 West Broadway in Idaho Falls
(Next to Rocknaks Hardware, west I.F.)
Wednesday, July 22nd 2020
6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
AND Thursday, July 23rd 
6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Price Per Ticket

$145.00
Price subject to change without notice.

What to Expect

This is a moderately difficult craft for ages 18+. A brief mingle period will be followed by an assembly demonstration. On the first day you will affix the frame, apply the mortar glue, arrange your chess board, and leave it overnight to dry. On day two you will grout the table and finish the frame.

What's Included

  • Two drinks each night
    (more may be purchased)
  • Tan and beige 2-inch tiles
    ("Mesa" color; make 18" chess pattern)
  • Exterior barn shiplap boards
    ("Brown" color; pre-cut to 30")
  • Heavy duty plywood base, cut to size
  • Framing form
  • Mortar glue
  • Industrial grout
  • Sealer

Chess board does not include a table base. You can set it on a table or log, build your own base, or order a matching kit from Bear & Blue. 

1.5-inch wood checkers in bag are available for sale at Bear & Blue for $14.99.

What's Served

If our distributors are able to participate, we will host a wine tasting. In any case, two drinks are included (more may be purchased). Choose from alcohol or non-alcohol. (Must be 21 to enjoy alcohol, of course.) You may bring snacks if you like. We will have some snacks here too.

Tools to Be Provided for Use

  • Sponges & brushes
  • Drill bits
  • Pin Nailer
  • Mortar comb
  • Tile spacers
  • Grout float
  • Gloves

Tools You Need to Bring

  • A fun attitude.
  • *Any additional unique embellishments you might want to add (shells, pebbles, mosaics, etc.). The tiles are tan and brown and look rustic, so if you bring anything we advise choosing natural, muted materials.
  • Liability waiver must be signed upon arrival.

*Age Restriction

Attendees must be 18+ years for this particular class due to the challenging nature of drilling small pieces. No children under age 18 may be present in the workshop tonight.

Capacity

Capacity at this particular class is currently limited to 18 attendees. If the weather is nice, we will work outside. Otherwise, classes are hosted in the Bear & Blue workshop, which is a working creative studio run by a manic artist. So please do not expect a clean, sterile environment.
