Get Pinspired at Pinspiration Craft Studio in Portage MI

I don’t want to admit it, but I might be slightly obsessed with Pinterest.

I could scroll for hours, drooling over the beautiful home decor ideas, wall hangings, kitchen art, gift ideas, and holiday projects that I could be making.

The projects look so doable if only I had the supplies, the time, and a place to work. Thankfully, DIY craft studio Pinspiration Kalamazoo can help.

Pinspiration Kalamazoo takes care of that if only by offering a fully stocked, DIY craft studio in Portage to provide the supplies and space to create.

And when you want to celebrate with friends or loved ones, Pinspiration is also your destination for parties, date nights, moms night out, and more!

The Splatter Room

One of the very coolest and most unique activities Pinspiration offers is their Jackson Pollock-themed Splatter Room!

In the Splatter Room, they’ll hook you up with goggles, shower caps, booties, and robes or coveralls.

Although the paint is washable, you’ll probably want to wear older clothing you don’t care about, just in case.

You can book the splatter room as a couple for an unforgettable date, or bring an entire party to get in on the fun.
