New Boutique Workshop in Westfield Brings Out Anyone’s Inner Artist

New Boutique Workshop in Westfield Brings Out Anyone’s Inner Artist

Westfield, NJ residents now have a new way to express their passion for DIY design and styling with the opening of AR Workshop at 226 North Avenue West.   An extension of the popular NC-based design company Anders Ruff, AR Workshop is a  hands-on boutique studio and store where visitors can create their own handmade,  mixed-media pieces – everything from framed and plank wood signs, to canvas wall  hangings, to 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.

Taking the trend of creative, interactive parties (think of the popular “wine and painting” studios) to a fun new level, AR Workshop Westfield 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 approach enables anyone to produce beautiful,  “Pinterest-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 and couples, to larger groups and parties and even corporate events, AR Workshop Westfield is a place where inspiration and instruction meet – with a fun, fresh DIY flair. To learn more, visit
