ar workshop in malvern is open and fun!

Savvy Main Line had a piece this week about Malvern Borough’s new kids on King, Anders Ruff (“AR”) Workshop.

I had some time this afternoon and had to make quick stops at Kimberton Whole Foods and Up Home, so I stopped in.

Ok so….it’s a super fun spot and I look forward to checking out an event soon! I met Gemma and she was so nice to just let me wander around and snap a few photos.

I think this will be a fun spot and I envision many DIY events that will bring more folks into Malvern Borough. And because it is arts and crafts centric maybe Malvern Borough should start thinking in terms of arts events and sidewalk sale days. The festivals are great fun, but there is so much more you could do.

What would be really cool would to bring arts and music together and involve the merchants, and galleries, but I digress.

My friends will tell you I am not a chalk paint person but other kinds of crafts? Like what is being offered at AR Workshop in Malvern? That sounds fun!

My pick for one of their upcoming events happens April 14th. Denise Sabbia from the Painted Home and design coordinator for one of my favorite shows, Stone House Revival will be teaching a workshop! (Register HERE and learn more about the event!)

Check out AR Workshop Malvern on the web and on Facebook. They are at 233 E. King Street in Malvern Borough. Their phone number is 620-783-3113 .

And as always I have not been compensated in any way for this post. I wrote this post because I went and checked out a new business and loved it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Ok do you have an old stone house you own that is in need of something? The Jeff Devlin and Stone House Revival  are looking for you!

Stone House Revival is an awesome show if you haven’t seen it (I record the episodes so I do not miss any!!) One reason I like this show is the way Devlin works with these old houses is awesome – he doesn’t try to make them what they are NOT and his renovations fit with the homes he is working on. And his is also not a beige, beige world. He is not afraid to use color, but there is a subtlety. He practices historic preservation and adaptive reuse and I think that is terrific!

Anyway if you are interested here are the details:
