This fun, workshop with local lingerie designer Hazel Lethaby of Mischke Lingerie makes a great hen or birthday party celebration!
Hazel brings along a selection of materials and trimmings for you to choose from, and then takes you through the step-by-step process of working with stretch material to sew a pair of knickers that will fit and flatter your curves.
The workshop is suitable for beginners, and those with previous sewing experience. And it's a great introduction to the world of making your own lingerie if that's something you fancy giving a try. We provide access to a sewing machine, but you are welcome to bring your own machine if you have one as it's good to practice on the one you'd be using.
The price for the day includes all materials and refreshments, and of course you get to take the beautiful knickers you have created home to enjoy! Depending on the time of day you choose for your party, we provide morning or afternoon tea along with a complimentary glass of fizz. And if you prefer an evening slot we'll choose some tasty savoury options.
We can personalise most of our hen and birthday party workshops, so if you've a particular theme in mind just let us know. We can also bring many of our workshops to you if you have a particular venue you'd like to use. Just give us a call to chat through the options.
This workshop costs £45pp. For groups of 8 we include one free space. If you'd like to bring a bigger party please contact us for prices.
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.

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 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.
