Evans DIY business sold to new owners

New owners of AR Workshop

A successful do-it-yourself arts and crafts business in Evans is changing hands at the end of the month.

AR Workshop – located at 3116 William Few Parkway next door to Rooted Coffeehouse in the Riverwood Shopping Center – has been sold to new owners who will take over the business on June 28. Owners Brandi Collins and Anita Barr will hold a VIP farewell party on Saturday, June 26 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and only 24 seats are available for clients. Collins is moving away due to her husband’s military orders. They have owned the business for about three years.

The business offers hands-on workshops that allow customers to create their own home décor, such as wood signs, clocks, canvas bags, and pillows, as well as DIY-To-Go Kits and kid’s workshops. Founded in 2016 by Maureen Anders and Adria Ruff, the company has over 150 franchises nationwide.

“Beginning June 28th, Lindsay & April will be the new faces of AR Workshop Evans. This dynamic duo of Boss Babes just finished up their training at our flagship location in Pineville, North Carolina,” said Collins via her e-newsletter.

There will be a grand re-opening party in the summer to celebrate the two owners. For more information or to register for a workshop, visit or call 706-817-4113.
