PRIVATE PARTIES & EXPERIENCES
At The Arienas Collective, we're passionate about creating engaging, sociable and creative experiences for people to immerse themselves in. We have an array of workshops for you to book yourself into but we're always open to fresh ideas.
If you have a creative activity in mind that you're keen to learn about or perhaps you fancy trying one of our existing art forms in a private class with your friends or family, please get in touch and we'll be delighted to structure the experience around your needs and wants.
Do you have a special occasion coming up? We believe our home venue is the perfect, intimate setting for private parties and experiences. Whether it's a hen do, a 60th birthday party or a graduation pamper day, we've got you covered! You can choose your date, timings and activity, and even request your refreshments (including fizz, if you're celebrating in style!)
Have a browse through some of our suggestions below or contact us with your celebration idea, and we'll do what we can to ensure your event is extra special.
Refreshment breaks - featuring locally sourced products - are an important part of The Arienas Collective experience. We are fortunate to have a fantastic range of independent shops and producers nearby who we love to support.
Our artists will support you throughout the experience, offering one-to-one guidance and tips on design, as well as encouraging collaboration through sharing of ideas within the group. They will do their best to answer any questions you may have.
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: 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.
