WELCOME TO AR WORKSHOP CHESTNUT HILL!
8607 Germantown Ave. Philadelphia, PA 19118 – Phone: 215-995-1111

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 Chestnut Hill is owned by Kim McPoyle.  Kim grew up in Blue Bell, and spent lots of time in the Chestnut Hill area while raising her 5 sons.  When AR Workshop was looking for a Philadelphia location, she knew Chestnut Hill was the perfect spot!  Kim is a DIY enthusiast, and has always loved building and creating items for her own home.  As her boys got older and she went back to work, she quickly realized that sitting behind a desk was not satisfying her love for creativity.  As soon as she learned about AR Workshop, she jumped on the chance to help others create unique home décor items in a fun social atmosphere.

Favorite Quote:

Maybe the journey isn’t about becoming anything.

Maybe it’s unbecoming everything that isn’t you so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.  -unknown
