Meet Maureen (Anders) and Adria (Ruff). These two are the designers behind the 2010 design company Anders Ruff®, a popular graphic design, party styling, DIY blog and online shop. Anders Ruff® quickly evolved from an Etsy shop, to their own branded e-commerce platform and blog where thousands would visit and shop their online store for printable party goodies. They coined the blog column, “Ruff Draft”, which was a source of DIY inspiration and ideas for many years. 6 years later and many creative ideas completed, these two had demands from fans and clients to offer hands-on workshops where they could teach their skills to others. Their dream of coming out from behind the screen to offer DIY workshops for home decor and other creative skills came true! The vision was to create an inspiring and charming boutique workshop that not only offers classes but sells unique and beautiful retail items that Maureen and Adria use in their styling jobs and photoshoots for magazines and celebrities! AR Workshop® was born! Their DIY loving audience quickly noticed the AR Workshop® brand and concept, and started asking to open their own locations. Now here we are, over 2 years later with more than 100 franchise locations across the country!

I signed up for this class with 3 other friends to celebrate our friends birthday and we had a blast. Everyone’s blanket turned out beautiful. You learn 4 different knots to produce a super soft blanket over 2-3 hours. We had a mix of serious crafters and novices and everyone was equal parts engaged and relaxed in their project. The only thing that could have been better was a bit more space to work- the blankets get pretty long and can start to droop off the table. That said, I would (and have) recommend this class for groups of friends, coworkers or family to take as it’s something interactive and social.

I was thrilled! It was my very first time to a workshop like this. My daughter planned it as part of my birthday celebration. I loved it ALL! Our “hostess” Sophia was kind, thoughtful, helpful, talented, creative and encouraging.

The class is fun!! A great way to 1. Meet new people. 2. To have a girls night. I would have given this a 5 star but I have an issue with the workshop not providing bags to put your blanket in. The class is $99 and they wanted to us to purchase something EXTRA so we can have a brown paper bag. Not a reusable cloth bag but a brown paper bag. I don't fin it fare that would want to charge you extra for a bag. That's my only issue with the class.
