We Are Open, Reservations Available


As we have re-opened, we are still taking precautions and hope you will understand that all of our decisions are made with the health and safety of our staff and our customers in mind.

Customers who have been vaccinated and are comfortable doing so may be in the shop without a mask. We ask that customers who have not yet been vaccinated continue to wear masks.

The entire staff at DIYC is vaccinated.

We are still offering pottery-to-go from the shop on the website, for anyone who is not yet comfortable with painting inside at Do It Yourself Crafts.

Walk-ins are available but reservations receive first priority. If you would like to reserve time to paint, you can do that by either emailing us at least a day before at or calling the shop at 205-868-4346.

I’ve never been to Do It Yourself Crafts. How does it work?

It’s easy! You come in, pick out a project to paint (we’ve got a LOT of items to pick from), paint it, leave it with us to be glazed and fired in the kiln, and come pick it up when we’ve texted you that it is ready! We have so many things to pick from – plates, bowls and mugs; home décor and seasonal items; pet bowls and treat jars; figurines of every type and size; banks and more!

DIY Crafters Box

With all the changes this year has brought, we want to be able to keep creating with you and your family. That means we have changed how we make the shop available to you! One of the things we often hear from our customers is that you guys LOVE painting, but that life can get in the way and it can be hard to find time to make it into the studio. 

Do It Yourself Crafts is excited to launch a monthly creativity subscription! Say hello to the DIY Crafters Box. Creativity is about more than just painting. When you get crafty, you also relax, unwind, connect with others, and make happy new memories. In short - there’s never been a better time to ramp up the amount of creativity in your life! 

With this program, you’ll receive a monthly box of goodies to help make your creativity a priority.  Projects will be fun, trendy, seasonal and – best of all – ready for you to create when and where you can!

We have multiple options for all age groups and levels. Fun Night Out, Keep My Kids Creating, and Get My Craft On. With each of these, you can pick either a three-month or six-month subscription.
