Fancy making your very own personalised glass Christmas baubles?
This taster workshop will get you into the festive spirit, as our calligraphy artist Panna Chauhan teaches you how to hand-decorate a set of 3 Christmas baubles which you will take home to hang with pride on your tree, or as perfect, personalised gifts for family and friends.
In the first hour, you will concentrate on the traditional calligraphy letter-making and learn the basics. Then you will practice on acetate to get an idea of what it will look and feel like, so you'll have plenty of time to experiment and play with ideas.
You will move onto working with the glass baubles once you feel more confident, to ensure they look fantastic! As you will be working on glass, you will use special gold, silver and black pens, which will have a very Christmassy aesthetic. There will also be a range of decorative items you can use to fill your baubles.
Refunds are not available on this booking. Start dates may be amended on request.
The Arienas Collective workshops are run from a supportive and welcoming home-based environment within Edinburgh’s City Centre Georgian New Town. We invite you to turn up, leave any day-to-day worries behind, and immerse yourself in creating something unique.
Spaces on our workshops are limited so that our artists and makers can offer you the hands-on help and support you need to make the most of your time with us.
All equipment is provided, and the materials you need to complete your project are included in the price of your workshop (unless stated otherwise).
Our buffet-style refreshment breaks are an important part of all The Arienas Collective workshops, courses and experiences. They are a time to socialise, make new friends and chat to the artists and makers. We are fortunate to have a fantastic range of independent shops and producers nearby, and feature locally sourced food and drinks wherever possible. A wide range of dietary requirements can be catered for.
PLEASE NOTE: Our workshop space is on the first-floor of a Georgian mews building and unfortunately we do not have lift access. Due to COVID-19, we have had to adapt the way we run our workshops and there may be some changes to the way it is delivered.
