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.

Dorothy Hawthorn reviewed: Lino-printing onto paper

"Great course that provided knowledge and experience to get going with lino printing at home. Tutor was skilled and knowledgeable and a good communicator. Course held in beautiful surroundings making it an enjoyable day. Easy to access by public transport. Pleasing to come away with cards and a framed picture. "

The Arienas Collective responded:

" Hello Dorothy Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this lovely review for Suzanne's lino printing workshop. I'm so glad you enjoyed your course and were pleased with the cards and framed print you designed and printed on the day. It was lovely, well done! We hope to welcome you back to The Arienas Collective again. Best wishes Lynn :-)"

Michelle Calvert reviewed: Screen printing using paper stencils

"Really enjoyed the afternoon. Everything was supplied, great tuition. Only thing is, it went by far too quickly! I would highly recommend. "

The Arienas Collective responded:

" Hello Michelle Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this lovely review of Lou's screen printing workshop. They say time always passes quickly when you're enjoying yourself - and especially when you're fully engaged in getting creative, we find ;-) I hope to welcome you back...maybe to one of Lou's full day printing workshops?! With best wishes Lynn"

Janice A reviewed: Festive soap and cream making with The Scottish Soapworks

"A most enjoyable and relaxing experience. Our tutor, Jenny, made us feel right at home (and that's where we were! Thank you Lyn). A great mixture of giving information, demonstrating, and practical experience of making soap. Everyone in the group was so friendly, and I felt as if I had known them much longer than a few hours. It was very pleasing to be able to take away the soap we had created - a real sense of achievement. Looking forward to making more at home. Many many thanks to Jenny, Lyn and the team for a memorable day: I loved it."

The Arienas Collective responded:

" Hi Janice. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this wonderful review. I'm glad you enjoyed your workshop and now feel ready to make your own soap at home. I'll be emailing you Jenny's notes soon, so keep an eye on your inbox! I'm sorry to miss seeing you, but it sounds like you quickly made friends with the others in the class. We love it when that happens :-) With best wishes, Lynn and Jenny "

Shula Murdoch reviewed: Art + Wine evenings

"Spent a lovely evening with Suzanne and Lynn. Met lovely people. Would recommend this for beginners."

The Arienas Collective responded:

" Hello Shula Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this lovely review. You were a great group, and it was amazing to see how everyone's interpretation of Iona by Cadell turned out. Each one had its own individual style. I hope to welcome you back one day. With best wishes Lynn"
