About the Course

We offer a range of lingerie sewing workshops including knicker making, garters and kimonos. We will be adding more in the near future. Details of our knicker making workshop are below. We will be adding dates and details for the others soon so please check our website for more information.

Knicker-making workshop

During this 3 hour workshop, local lingerie designer Hazel Lethaby of Mischke Lingerie will introduce you to working with stretch material by sewing a pair of knickers that will fit and flatter your curves.

The workshop is suitable for beginners, and those with previous sewing experience, and is a great introduction to the world of making your own lingerie. You will leave with a new pair of knickers!

Access to a sewing machine is provided, but you are welcome to bring your own machine if you prefer.

The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a supportive and welcoming home environment in the Edinburgh New Town. Spaces are limited so our artists can offer hands-on help and support. All equipment is provided, as are all the materials you will need. Just turn up, leave any day-to-day worries behind, and immerse yourself in creating something unique.

Please note that The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a first-floor open plan reception room and unfortunately we do not have lift access. Please let us know of any skin or food allergies when booking.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

The price includes all materials, refreshments and of course you get to take the beautiful knickers you have created home to enjoy and inspire you.

Great evening in a fabulous location and I learnt new skills. Didn't seem rushed at all and had plenty of time to chat and compare skills. Thank you

Response from The Arienas Collective:

Hi Susan. Thanks for your lovely review, and we're so pleased you enjoyed your evening. We always try to leave time for people to relax and chat since our workshops are also planned to be provide people with some 'time out' from everyday life. It's also why we keep numbers low so our lovely artists and makers like Hazel have plenty time to provide hands-on help and support and share their skills. We hope to welcome you back to The Arienas Collective one day. With best wishes, Lynn

A very relaxed workshop, expertly organised in a beautiful setting. Hazel is clear and concise, explains and shows every stage of the process, I didn't feel lost or confused. Perfect for beginners and the result is surprising - the end product looks unbelievably professional. I left feeling rested, not something I expected, like an evening spent with good friends. I will definitely book further workshops with Arienas and Hazel.

Response from The Arienas Collective:

Hi Bea. Thanks for your lovely comments. I'm so glad you were happy with your knickers. We thought they looked incredibly professional too! It's amazing what you can achieve in a few hours with the right help, and we love sending people home with something they're proud of. We're based in a home because we wanted to create a relaxing and welcoming environment, so it's so lovely to hear you went home feeling like you'd spent a relaxing evening with friends. That's what we hope for! Hope to see you back soon. Best wishes, Lynn
