*SADLY, FOR HEALTH REASONS, WE ARE HAVING TO POSTPONE OUR CALLIGRAPHY WORKSHOPS UNTIL 2020. WE WISH PANNA A SPEEDY RECOVERY AND HOPE TO ADD NEW WORKSHOP DATES SOON.
Fancy making your very own, personalised glass Christmas baubles? Following the success of last year's Christmas bauble workshop, we're bringing it back for 2019.
This evening workshop will get you into the festive spirit, as our calligraphy artist Panna Chauhan teaches you how to hand-decorate Christmas baubles which you will take home to hang with pride on your tree. Or, they also make perfect, personalised gifts.
In the first hour, you will concentrate on the traditional calligraphy letter-making and learn the basics. Then you will practice on acetate to get an idea of what it will look and feel like, so you'll have plenty of time to experiment and play with ideas. You will move onto working with the glass baubles once you feel more confident, to ensure they look fantastic! As you will be working on glass, you will use special gold, silver and black pens, which will have a very Christmassy aesthetic. There will also be a range of decorative items you can use to fill your baubles.
The price includes all materials, festive refreshments and you will take home three lovely, hand made, truly personalised glass baubles.
Please note that The Arienas Collective workshops are run from the first floor of a home-based environment and unfortunately we do not have lift access. Please advise us of any skin or food allergies when booking.
Christmas Calligraphy: *21 November 6pm-9pm
The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a supportive and welcoming home environment in the Edinburgh New Town. Spaces are limited to allow our artists and designer-makers to offer hands-on help and support. All equipment is provided and all the materials you will need (unless stated otherwise). Just turn up, leave any day-to-day worries behind, and immerse yourself in creating something unique.
Refreshment breaks are an important part of The Arienas Collective experiences. They are a time to socialise, make new friends and chat to the artists and designer-makers. We are fortunate to have a fantastic range of independent shops and producers nearby and are proud to feature locally sourced food and drinks.
The price includes all materials, lunch and refreshments, and of course you get to take home all the unique products you have created.
All our experiences are also available to book as a private group for up to 8 people. If you would like to book an experience for a larger number please email us.
