Welcome to our DIY Studio, the place where you can learn new skills, meet new friends and create magical masterpieces, every single day. Take a look at our workshops and classes, reserve some time to come in and craft, or check out all the newest products we have available at our store.  You do not need to be a  professional artist or crafting queen to come in and enjoy some lighthearted projects.  Don't know what to do?  We can help you come up with a plan along with what colors to use and how to do it!  We have stencils available for use, glitter to bling up that special design and ribbon to make a matching bow.

Our store is BYOB, so you can enjoy your beverages while you craft!

At the center of everything we do is our passion for helping others learn new skills, try new techniques, and unleash your inner artist. Using Self-Guided projects, many can enjoy a variety of crafts right here in the studio or sign up for one of our varied workshops. We are here to guide those wishing to try a completely new craft or learn new techniques.


Create! DIY Craft Studio is located inside Pearl Plaza in the heart of Downtown Muscatine, and reflects the vibrant energy of the area. Are you ready to step outside of your comfort zone and learn a new skill or just come in and relax with friends while doing a fun activity? Call or email us today to learn more about Create!
