AR Workshop® is a boutique DIY studio that offers hands-on classes for creating custom, charming home decor from raw materials.  Join an instructor-led workshop where you can make custom wood plank signs, framed signs, canvas pillows, round signs, lazy susans, centerpiece boxes, canvas tote bags, and more!  AR Workshop® will help you take your home decor to the next level and have fun while creating it!

AR Workshop Ankeny is locally owned by a pair of ambitious DIY’ers, Jeff & Laura Reed. You can often find Jeff with a power tool in hand, whether that is for work or play. He stays busy with Laura’s requests for custom pieces of décor and furniture for their home. Laura’s love for crafting and DIY combined with Jeff’s construction knowledge and desire to one day own a business made AR Workshop a perfect fit for them.

Jeff & Laura are elated to bring AR Workshop to Ankeny and provide a place for friends and family to gather and create beautiful custom home décor. Stop in soon!
