Once a year, we open our home-based workshop space to the public, so you can meet some of the local artists, designers and makers who run workshops here.

We provide information on all our workshops, and run a selection of free workshop demonstrations throughout the day.


There is a selection of items that people have created while attending our workshops on display, and some of the artists and makers will also have their own work on show, or for sale.


Arienas Collective Gift Vouchers are available to buy, and we have special Open Day offers available.


Refreshments are provided by The Arienas Collective members, for which we ask for a donation towards our chosen charity or creative partner.

Our Open Day is FREE ENTRY! Everyone is welcome to simply turn up on the day.

 Our free mini workshop demos have limited spaces, so it is worth booking ahead. You can find more information on our 2022 Open Day here.


Our chosen creative partner for 2022 is Lihtaryk Art Studio in Kiev, Ukraine.


Keep up-to-date with The Arienas Collective throughout the year!
