When most businesses were closing their doors, one businesses decided to open theirs up.

Pinspiration, a Pinterest-inspired craft studio “where community meets creativity,” opened in May at 1050 Glenbrook Way in Hendersonville. The store is the first of its kind in Tennessee.

The drop-in arts-and-crafts studio cultivates creativity and community with more than 50 projects to choose from which rotate periodically and seasonally.

One of its compelling creative attractions is a Jackson-Pollock-inspired “Splatter Room,” complete with music and glow-in-the-dark features, which can be booked for anything from kids parties to date nights.

The Hendersonville studio caters to children and adults, men and women, individuals and groups. It can accommodate walk-ins or appointments. Artists can book ahead of time for team-building exercises or other events if they so choose. Pinspiration also offers snacks — such as charcuterie boards, hummus plates and DIY s'mores — and drinks — such as iced tea, coffee, lemonade and soda — and allows adult crafters to bring their own beer or wine.

Appropriately dubbed as “muses” in the studio, employees wander to lend a hand as people work in-house, though participating artists are provided with written instructions to help guide them through any particular project. All muses and customers must wear masks in the studio, and those who are concerned about social distancing can spread out using the party room.

Owner and Operator Windi Klemme and her husband have called Hendersonville home for more than 10 years and the Pinspiration studio as been in the works since August 2019.

Though the fun of Pinspiration is the experience, the studio is taking proper precautions as the COVID-19 pandemic continues and there are options for those who might not want to be around others (for example, Pinspiration Hendersonville might soon offer take-home kits again for select projects), per the website.

Pinspiration is open for walk-in crafters and to those looking to book online, Klemme said. The business can make necessary accommodations, including if customers have a guitar or a canvas of their own that they’re interested in personalizing in the “Splatter Room.”
