We have had Anders Ruff for over 6 years, and we have been a source for creative and inspiring graphic design, DIY projects and party inspiration. Our online tutorials have become so popular that we’ve decided to step out from behind the screen to bring on-trend workshop format classes in an inspiring and stylish boutique atmosphere!

Our workshops feature step by step instruction for learning unique skills and creating charming and unique home decor pieces and beyond.  Our projects are customizable and will teach you techniques that you can use for doing your own DIY crafts at home with a variety of materials!  Most importantly, our workshops are fun!  Really!  We have music, wine and beer, and encourage laughing and dancing while you work on your project!

We believe in doing the work yourself is what pays off so join us, get inspired and lets get in touch with your inner craftinista!
AR Workshop will help you take your home decor to the next level!

From framed wood signs to plank wood signs, canvas wall hangings, chalkboard art, pillows, decor and more!  Think fabric, metal, ceramic, paint, stencils, hammers and drills, chalk, canvas – we will be featuring all types of project based classes that will help you get in touch with your inner craftinista!  Our instructors will guide you every step of the way and make sure you leave with a piece that you are proud to show off in your home or gift to a friend.

In the workshop space, you will notice that it feels like an “Anders Ruff photoshoot”.  We have super fun installations all over, and loads of inspiration. We will be posting our pics soon, but still have some work to do in the studio!  We love our clipboard calendar area showing all the workshops….


Once you step into the space, we hope you will fall in love with the idea of creating.  This is the perfect place for a girls night out, neighborhood gathering, fund raiser, kids birthday party, date night….

The best part about it is that we get to be with friends during the workshops. We get to see groups of friends coming in and having a good time.  To us, creating is in our nature and the BEST form of therapy! (Not that we need therapy, haha!)
