Give the gift of creativity this Christmas
I can hardly believe there's only one week to go until Christmas.
I really should be used to this 'last minute shopping angst' though: my daughter Jodie was born on 12 December and each year since then Christmas didn't begin in our household until after her birthday celebrations were over - and it's now been 30 years!
Are you all sorted and ready to warm up the mulled wine? Or, like me, do you still people to buy for, and loved ones asking you what you want for Christmas but you can't decide? Well, perhaps I can help you out.
If you'd like to give, or receive, a creative experience this year, there's still time to buy a space on one of our workshops in the heart of Edinburgh. Or if you're not sure which one to choose, then to purchase a gift voucher. Our last order dates for Christmas are below.
Deadlines for gift voucher purchases
Deadline for posting vouchers in the UK - Friday, 20th December at midday GMT
Deadline for collecting a voucher from us at The Arienas Collective - Tuesday, 24th December at 1pm GMT*
*Please note that voucher collection is by prior arrangement only.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07732 901150 to arrange a mutually convenient time.
Deadline for workshop purchases - Christmas Day
You can enrol someone directly onto the workshop you think they'll love right up until the big day*. You will receive an email acknowledgement of your order, which you can print out, and can also download and print the workshop details from the Book & Buy page of our website. So it's the perfect last minute gift.
*Please make sure you read the workshop terms and conditions before booking. We do not offer refunds (except in the unusual event that the workshop is cancelled) but will always do our best to transfer people to another workshop if the date you choose for them doesn't suit.
