AR Workshop is a boutique DIY studio that offers hands-on, custom home decor classes. Think art class meets wood shop meets Joanna Gaines. The cozy little shop in Robinson is perfect for a girls night out, a relaxing solo date with yourself, family outings, etc. The classes are designed for all skill levels. And for my readers with kiddos, they even offer family-friendly workshops.
While wood projects are AR's core offering, you aren't limited to working with wood. ARW offers all kinds of crafts: wall hangings, trays, seasonal decor, wedding keepsakes, canvas hangings, bags, and even the ever-popular chunky blankets. Browse their Instagram for a quick look.
so how does it work?
Step 1: Register online and pick your project.
Like any class, ARW requires advance registration. Hit up their website, pick a time that works for you, and select the project you want to make. (Note: Make sure you pay attention to the type of class on the schedule. Some workshops are dedicated to specific projects.) Projects range from $40-$70, but the experience comes with a beautiful space, phenomenal instructors, and a personalized piece that is yours to keep.
Step 2: Gather the provisions.
ARW is snack-friendly and offers a BYOB policy. I arrived with wine, cheese, and chocolate. If you do decide to bring wine or any kind of beverages, I would recommend bringing a tumbler. Something like this prevents the chance of spilling on your project and your workspace.
Step 3: Get to work.
When you arrive for your class, you'll grab an apron and jump right in. You'll be assigned a seat where all of the materials for your custom design will be prepared and laid out for you. Each class at ARW provides instructors to help guide you through the project and lend a hand if you run into any problems. You'll sand, stain, assemble, and paint until you have a gorgeous wall hanging, tray, or pillow to take home. Make sure you snap a photo of your creation and tag @arworkshoprobinson.
