The Arienas Collective Gift Vouchers will also be available to buy.


Mulled wine and mince pies will be provided by The Arienas Collective, for which we would love you to make a donation towards our chosen charity Art in Healthcare.


The event is FREE ENTRY but our online shop does not allow us to add free items! So we have added a nominal £1 entry fee. If you want to pay an entry fee, we will add this to the charity donation. But everyone is welcome to just turn up on the day.


Thank you for continued support for The Arienas Collective and the local artists, designers and makers we help to earn a living through delivering creative workshops in our home-based space in central Edinburgh.


Please note that The Arienas Collective workshop space s based on the first floor of a Georgian mews private home and unfortunately we do not have lift access. We are only open to the general public on our annual Open Day, and otherwise to those booked onto our workshops or by appointment.
