MEET THE OWNERS
Well, Hey and thanks for visiting! My name is Jennifer Lester and along with my husband, Chuck, and our 2 kids, Addison and Ben, and of course the fur baby Coco; we make up Hammer and Stain Blue Ridge. I worked in the medical field for 17 years then decided it was time for a career change. That is when I found my calling as an Elementary school teacher. I was blessed to be able to work at an Arts integrated school that encourages the use of Art in the teaching curriculum. This has only fueled my creative fires.
We have vacationed in the North GA area over the last 15 years and absolutely LOVE it up here. So, when it came time to decide on where to relocate, Blue Ridge was the obvious choice.
The kiddos and I have been attending Hammer and Stain workshops in our current hometown in South Georgia for a few years and fell in love with it. In that time, I have created many projects and always want to create new ones. I love that everything is personalized, right down to the color combinations. Having classes for the kids is a lot of fun too, being an elementary school teacher and a mother of 2, there will always be something for the kids.
Hammer & Stain Blue Ridge is a DIY workshop that lets you transform wood and a splash of color into personalized works of art. How awesome will it be when someone asks where you got that piece and you can proudly say, “I made that!!”
All our instructor-led classes help you from choosing the perfect stain and paint then guiding you along the way. We offer a lot of projects small to large and many price options to suit your style/budget.
We are looking forward to bringing Hammer and Stain to the community of Blue Ridge and the surrounding areas, but more importantly we are looking forward to meeting all of you. - The Lester’s
