Editor's Note: We asked the owners of the AR Workshop Concord some questions to help our readers learn more about them.
In a couple of paragraphs describe your new activity:
We are a do-it-yourself boutique workshop specialized in practical lessons to create customized furniture. Our workshops are perfect for birthdays, showers, team building events, as you call it!
What is your specialty and what distinguishes you?
We offer a wide range of types of projects, including tapestries, canvas pillow cases and pillowcases, wooden or planked frame signs, centerpieces, frames, trays and lazy susans. We also have hundreds of designs to choose from and we're constantly adding more to our line up, so there's always something fresh and new to do. Also, everyone in our classes can choose to do something different, which is fun! For example, a person can make a vacation sign for their porch while their friend can make a centerpiece box with their family name on it. Many of our models can be customized to be a perfect gift for a wedding, a home heating or someone special.
We opened on June 15th and the seminar was full for the holidays!
Who are the owners / partners / managers?

Ryann is the owner of AR Workshop Belmont together with the founder of AR Workshop Maureen Anders. Beth owns AR Davidson Workshop.
