Projects include home decors such as custom wood signs, wooden frames, square clocks, canvas pillows, and lots more, all designed by you to reflect your interests and personality. The Chunky Knit Blanket project is very popular. No special skills or training is needed to come away with a beautiful knit 40” X 50” blanket in your choice of a solid color, color block, or stripes.

Another specialty project is the wooden centerpiece box with succulents. Participants will build and decorate the box and learn how to care for the plants which are included. It’s so nice to display this DIY project in your home or give it as a gift.

New collections are always blooming at AR Workshop. For spring/summer, there are nautical, beach, and seaside themes. Nursery designs for baby, botanical, golf, and animal topics are available.
