How The Board Bar Works
We Create {DIY} Happiness

The Board Bar is a DIY studio primarily for adult makery & merriment!

We’ve got the creative space, tools, materials and instruction for you to create and have fun. 

Our Drop-In & DIY open sessions are self-guided.  All projects come with step-by-step instructions on how to complete and take anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours to complete.  Please plan your arrival accordingly, we recommend 2 hours before our last seating. 

Need more assistance?  We’ve got you covered!  Join one of our workshops; we offer candle, canvas pillow, water marbling and specialty home decor workshops.  These workshops are scattered throughout the calendar; click here for upcoming events.

An Update from our owner, Jenn:

After three long months of being closed, The Board Bar is officially reopening on June 13th. Our new hours will be Thursday-Sunday from 12-6 pm.  And hours will increase as demand requires it.

Our team is so excited to have you back in the studio and show you all the fun things we’ve been working on. While we’ve been closed, we’ve been spending lots of time pivoting to revamp our offerings, reorganize the studio, phase out some workshops, add more of the products you love, and introduce some totally new product lines.

I have always dreamt of The Board Bar being a place where there is no limit to what you can create. As we reopen, we will be offering projects that you can’t find anywhere else, along with introducing stoneware pottery and clay hand-building classes!  Whether you DROP IN & DIY with us, or prefer joining in on a workshop – our DIY studio has never had more opportunities for you to relax, unwind, and get creative. 

We truly believe that after every storm, there is a rainbow. So while things will look a bit different around here, The Board Bar you know and love is back and better than ever.

We hope to have you join us in the studio soon. I cannot thank you enough for your support of our small, family owned business. It means more than you know!
