Hammer & Stain is a DIY workshop that allows makers to come to scheduled classes or private parties and make a personalized project. Through our hands on workshops, we share our love of crafting and DIY to help you create a unique, one of a kind piece. With the help of our experienced instructors, and BYOB policy, we promise a wonderful night out and a wall worthy piece. Outside of our public workshops and private parties, we also offer fundraising opportunities, children’s workshops, and even can host events in our makers’ homes.
About the Owner Megan Sortino- “Here is how my business got started. I had just gotten home from the hospital with my newborn son, Charlie. I had been thinking about how I could bring Hammer & Stain to the Birmingham area, and with 12 weeks of maternity leave from my full time job as an occupational therapist at UAB ahead of me, I knew this was my chance. I spent the next few weeks researching how to start my own business and where to even start. I signed the licensing agreement and 7 weeks later we opened our doors to our first scheduled class!”
