Boutique Workshop Brings Out Anyone’s Inner Artist

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO...San Juan Capistrano residents now have a fresh, new way to create DIY projects like the pros, with the opening of AR Workshop in Marbella Plaza.

Part of the fast-expanding Anders Ruff Company, AR Workshop is a hands-on boutique studio and store where visitors can create projects of their Pinterest dreams. Both beginning and advanced DIY-ers can hand make mixed-media pieces like framed and plank wood signs, canvas wall hangings, or chalkboard art, pillows, décor and more. And it all takes place in guided workshop sessions that allow customers’ creative juices to flow, while still ensuring consistent, high-end results, no matter the skill level.

“I am really excited to be bringing this amazing and fun new concept to the San Juan area,” said franchise owner Brooke Fenn, “this is a place where people can come to relax with friends, work on fun projects and go home with awesome décor for their home—it’s a complete experience.”

Taking the trend of creative, interactive parties (think of the popular “wine and painting” studios) to a fun, new level, AR Workshop lets visitors work from customizable patterns and templates that can fit virtually any taste or style. As a result, no two pieces – or projects – are the same. But the directed and easy-going approach enables anyone to produce beautiful, “Instagram-worthy” artworks they can be proud of.

The environment itself is also designed to inspire and delight – with a warm, welcoming atmosphere that feels almost more like a lounge than an arts and crafts studio.

Accommodating everyone from individuals or couples, to larger groups and parties and even corporate events, AR Workshop is a place where inspiration and instruction meet – with a fun, fresh DIY flair. To learn more, visit
