DIY crafts AR Workshop Richmond

Are you looking for something fun to do in Richmond? Something a little outside of the box where you can use your hands? All while having something awesome to bring home? Then I’ve got something fun for you! Let me introduce you to DIY crafts at AR Workshop Richmond.

AR Workshop is a DIY retail store where you can make your own signs, trays, pillows, etc. Really the project list is endless. The shop is located at Stony Point Fashion Park and is so much fun!

The owner is Rebecca and she’s the absolute best! She’s also a good friend so yes I am biased but once you meet her…you’ll totally agree with me. Rebecca had the brilliant idea to open an AR Workshop here and her shop opened in October. (Total side note – she was a wedding photographer for over 10 years prior and I did force her to come out of wedding photographer retirement to photograph my wedding in March. But that’s another story and blog post. Seriously though how can one person be so talented??)

The class list is endless and in the shop all the classes are listed on these fun clipboards. For the current full class list visit their website HERE. 


When you come in for a class it is totally hands on! You’re getting your hands a little dirty. You’ll be painting, sanding, nail gunning (I don’t think that’s supposed to be used as a verb but it’s working for me), staining, etc. You even get to wear these super cute aprons! So you don’t have to worry about getting your cute outfit all stained.

The best part? You even get to drink while you craft!!! An AR Workshop class is great for date night or for girls night out!

The store also has some really awesome retail items!! And even better – most are made by local makers! Boss babes supporting other boss babes. I love it!!

I’ve had the pleasure of taking two different classes. One for learning how to make a chunky knit blanket and one for making a framed sign with my photography logo!!! (These next pictures were all taken with my iphone during the class I took.)

You can choose to do one of the many projects AR Workshops offers and the designs they offer or you can customize your project! Think initials, monograms, full names, or completely customize and do your business logo. Before class I emailed my logo to Rebecca so she could prepare the stencil. When I showed up my name was on the table with my project parts.

I can’t even begin to tell you the details of what we did when or what the steps were. Hahahaha. I might have been a bit flustered making sure my project was perfect. Cause that’s the way I roll…but here are a few photos of the fun process.

 And here’s my finished project!! I’m so in love with it and it’s proudly hanging in my studio!!
