Print your own notebooks using a vintage letterpress: 15 April 2021 6pm-9pm

Learn how to print and bind your own notebooks using a vintage letterpress machine with local artist and printer Lou Davis.


On this workshop you will revive a traditional skill by learning how to set metal or wooden type and make personalised, spiral bound notebooks.


Bring along a short quote you love, joke or a greeting message and print it on heavyweight cardstock using one of our Adana tabletop printing presses.


Learn to set type into a frame (called a chase) and print it on the press. You can choose to use decorations, or keep it minimal. Then you'll turn your prints into useful spiral bound notebooks.


These make fantastic gifts for family and friends. You will make six notebooks and some extra prints to take away are included in the cost of the workshop.


Price: £45 per person including all materials and welcome refreshments.


Please note that The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a first-floor space and unfortunately we do not have lift access. Please inform us 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.
