About Us

Hammer & Stain Fairview is a do-it-yourself workshop that lets you transform wood into wall worthy pieces of art. It is a fun place to paint, laugh and create one of a kind pieces you will be proud to take home and display. 


The studio also has a boutique of items available for sale. One day we hope to offer wine and beer, but now feel free to bring your own.

We offer public workshops, private, kids parties, fundraisers and even an opportunity for you to host a workshop and earn yours free!

Hammer and Stain Fairview is owned and operated by Dawn Rowlett. Dawn is a crafty do-it-yourselfer and excited to bring a unique DIY workshop experience to you! 

My Why

I've reached a point in my life where it was time to pursue my dreams.  I have always dreamt of owning my own business. I have been crafty and entrepreneurial since I was in fourth grade selling my handmade refrigerator magnets door to door. I've come a long way since then.

Crafting and being creative means so much to me. It is theraputic. But it is also empowering. The sense of accomplishment knowing you created something beautiful from raw materials. I mostly craft alone, but having taught and shared over the years, I love seeing people take pride in their finished pieces.  It is particulary rewarding when they feel they don't have a creative bone in their body only to discover they do!

My hope and goal with Hammer and Stain Fairview is for you to have a fun and safe place to express your creativity. Then leave with a sense of accomplishment and pride in your creation.
