AR Workshop Richmond is a boutique DIY Workshop that offers hands-on classes to create charming and custom decor, wood signs, canvas pillows and more. They host birthday parties, girl's night out, date night, or corporate team building events.
AR Workshop Richmond had to close their workshop and stop all classes mid-March due to the crisis. Although retail could technically remain open with 10 or fewer guests, they felt it was critical to be a part of flattening the curve rather than take chances with their staff and shoppers. Worrying about the welfare of their 10 local staff members and taking care of their own families was the scariest challenge they had to face.
No longer able to offer in-shop classes, AR Workshop Richmond quickly realized they had the perfect opportunity to offer DIY-To-Go Kits. Although they had never attempted this business model before, with a few tweaks, they were able to roll these out to the community. Art therapy has been so crucial for people’s mental well-being these past few months. Each week they roll out more new projects and designs for their To-Go Kits, including their most popular Chunky Knit Blankets which are available as a virtual class, just order the yarn on their website and choose curbside pickup, local delivery, or even shipping around the country!
All of AR Workshop's DIY-To-Go Kits are available to order on their website and include many options for all ages and price points. They also offer online gift card purchases to use toward a future class or a DIY-To-Go Kit. Additionally, they have a Make-It-For-Me option where customers can order larger projects, select their own colors and designs, and they're make it for them in the shop for curbside pickup.
