AR Workshop Ridgewood is owned by Julia Shenton. She could not be more excited to be bringing AR Workshop to Ridgewood! Julia has a background in hospitality management and has always had a passion for customer service. She and her husband had been talking about Julia owning her own business for years, but could never agree on something that was a good fit and that Julia was excited about. After a visiting another workshop a couple of times, Julia knew that AR Workshop was the right fit for her! She has always enjoyed design and decor, and loves how AR Workshop makes it easy and fool proof to DIY. Julia is excited to bring people together and assist them in making something that they are proud to display at home. She knows that AR Workshop Ridgewood will be a place for the community to come and have fun and is looking forward to meeting everyone!
