DIY Made Easy

Missoula has a new act in town, one where you get to be the designer of some nifty homemade creations. Visit AR Workshop on Higgins to choose a project design and register. When you arrive for your workshop, AR provides all the necessary materials and instruction. You can customize your project with your choice of stains, colors, and techniques. Leave with your ready-to-display finished project! These workshops are ideal for a night out with friends or family, birthday parties, date night, bachelorette parties, team building events, sports team outings, fundraisers, and corporate events. This popular franchise evolved from an Etsy shop to a branded e-commerce platform and blog where thousands would visit and shop the online store for printable party goodies. This is the first and only AR Workshop in the state of Montana. Visit ARWorkshop.com to view upcoming events!
