Maker's bio

The Arienas Collective supports local artists and makers to earn a living by sharing their creative skills and passions with others through delivering workshops. The workshops are run from our mews home in the beautiful Georgian New Town of central Edinburgh. We believe in the wellbeing benefits of engaging in creative activity, and our class sizes are kept small so that you get the support you need to make the most of your time with us. We teach you creative skills you can continue at home.

Susan Duncan reviewed: Introduction to macramé with Lucy Wayman

"Great introduction to Macrame. Lucy explained everything very clearly and taught everyone the basic knots they needed to complete a project. She was so good at going around helping everyone (no easy task when we were doing different projects). The workshop was set in Lynn's lovely home and we had all the equipment we needed to complete our projects. Tea and coffee were supplied in lovely bone china cups. I would highly recommend this course. Thank you"

The Arienas Collective responded:

"Hello Susan Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this lovely review. It means so much to us. Lucy does indeed do a great job at supporting people to create their individual macrame projects, and it was wonderful to see so many different styles. And thank you for appreciating the small things too, like my family's vintage cups. I love my tea, and always think it tastes nicer in a lovely china tea cup! I hope your fabulous macrame hanging has found its rightful place hanging proudly at home. And I hope to welcome you back again soon. Best wishes Lynn"

Great host and lovely workspace that made for a wonderful relaxed evening where some fantastic images were created in a short space of time. I would definitely return and recommend the course and providers! "

The Arienas Collective responded:

Christine Armstrong reviewed: Introduction to silver clay jewellery making

"The entire day was excellent. It was well organised and delivered in a very nice environment. The atmosphere was a good balance of warm, friendly but professional. I learned a great deal, came home with wearable pieces of jewellery I'd made and met some nice, like-minded people. I will definitely be booking more courses. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable day. "

The Arienas Collective responded:

"Hello Christine Thank you so much for this lovely, thoughtful review. We really appreciate that you have taken the time to share this feedback. And we absolutely love it when people go home proudly wearing the jewellery they have made! Well done on creating such beautiful pieces. We look forward to welcoming you back to The Arienas Collective. And thank you for supporting small, creative businesses. With best wishes Lynn "
