diy studio franchise anders ruff workshop

How AR Workshop® Began

Designers Maureen Anders and Adria Ruff first launched an all-encompassing design company called Anders Ruff, which specialized in graphic design, party styling, featured a DIY blog and an online shop. It wasn’t long before loyal fans and followers of the brand were asking for DIY workshops hosted at a brick and mortar storefront. So, in 2016 Maureen and Adria introduced AR Workshop – a boutique DIY studio that now has more than 125 franchises across the country and is growing through strategic franchise partnerships.
