The 2010 design company Anders Ruff started in the early days as an Etsy shop and online store for DIY inspiration and ideas. Based on demand from fans and clients over the years, the owners, Maureen Anders and Adria Ruff, now offer DIY workshops in more than 100 franchise locations across the States. Home décor, hand lettering, wreath making and chunky blanket knitting are a few of the workshops offered in our city at the Evans location next to the Rooted Coffeehouse on William Few Parkway.

A great place for birthday parties, girls’ night out, bachelorette parties and corporate events the sign up process is simple. You choose a workshop from the workshop schedule online and then show up. AR Workshop provides all the materials and instruction. Customization is key and participants can select a choice of stains, color and techniques for their “ready-to-display” finished products.

November 15 is the Holiday Paper Goods and Brush Lettering Workshop. Registrants will create a set of gift tags, place cards and custom stamps that are carved from pre-designed holiday motifs using beginner block carving tools.
