On this fun workshop you will revive a traditional skill by learning how to set metal or wooden type to create a set of bespoke gift cards featuring a personal message.
Bring along a brief quote you love, a joke or a greeting to print on to heavyweight cardstock using one of our Adana tabletop printing presses. Learn to set type into a frame (called a chase), and print your message on the press to produce a set of bespoke cards ready to take home.
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.
This workshop is also available to book for private group get-togethers; themed wedding and birthday celebrations; for corporate team building and well-being purposes; and can be brought to a location of your choice. Please select 'chat with the maker' if you would like to get in touch.
