River North Workshop Co. was co-founded by Fiona Arnold and Alicia Hendricks back in 2015. Two women with very different backgrounds, came together with a dream to create a space where local artists could sell their goods and share their craft with the community, offering classes and workshops. The inspiration for the shop came from Alicia, who was a graphic designer and avid crafter, and Fiona, who was an attorney at the time. Fiona took an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint class for fun, and was instantly inspired.
“I’ll never forget the day that Fiona called me with the idea to open a shop together. I had notebooks filled with business ideas at the time. I never truly believed that one day one of my ideas would come to fruition.” Alicia
We’re really sad to say goodbye to the retail portion of our business. We worked with so many incredible people over the years, many who we can now call friends. After three incredibly beautiful years, we’ve decided to scale back and focus on the workshop portion of our business.
River North Workshop Co. is now an event platform, where we curate and coordinate workshops, private events and gatherings in the Denver metro area. We’ve hosted over 150 workshops, and recently won the “Best Workshop Venue in Denver” award, given by Dabble. We’re always looking for new instructors, we love collaborating with local businesses and we can’t wait to continue learning and growing with you!
