A new craft DIY workshop is planning to open in early 2018 in the Village at Leesburg center. AR Workshop — which stands for Anders and Ruff, the founders — is a boutique craft center where guests can participate in hands-on workshops and make home decor items. There is also a retail aspect with already completed crafts available for purchase.
For a better idea, here is a short promotional video for the brand.
AR Workshop has only been around since 2016 and there are already more than 60 locations open or in the works around the country. Guests can book girls nights out, birthday parties, fundraisers and other group events to make projects with friends. The company also offers birthday party events for kids.
The AR Workshop at Village at Leesburg is being opened by local moms Jacqueline Maglione and Michelle Shepard. If you are crafty and enjoy working with people, they are currently accepting applications. The duo has a target opening of late February or early March in the space next to Little Nest Portraits. The spot was formerly the Arts in the Village gallery.
