Join us at our welcoming, Georgian mews home in Edinburgh's historic New Town to design and create soap favours and/or fun shapes - the perfect creative hen or wedding party experience!
We are perfectly placed - just 5 minutes walk from George Street with its popular bars and restaurants and 10 minutes from Waverley train station - for you to combine your wedding soap-making experience with enjoying all the day and evening delights that Edinburgh has to offer.
You will begin your wedding or hen party experience by learning about the properties of our essential oils and organic glycerine soap. Then you will melt, scent and mould your soap into recipes and shapes of your choice.
Depending on the time of day, you will enjoy a delicious morning or afternoon tea (or coffee) featuring locally blended Shuibui tea coffee served with a complementary glass of fizz! For evening parties we select some tasty, savoury options.
Once your soap is set, it's time to get creative. You will decorate and wrap your soaps ready to take away using a selection of gift wrapping options from our craft table. You are also welcome to bring your own gift wrapping and moulds, or to contact us to discuss ideas for personalising your soap-making experience to fit in with your wedding or hen party theme.
You will have access to all the equipment you need, and the price includes includes all materials and refreshments. And of course you take home all the lovely soap you have made.
Our glycerine soap-making workshops cost £45pp, so the group price for 8 people includes one free space. Please contact us for prices if you wish to bring a larger group.
Once you have booked your private wedding or hen party experience, we will contact you to arrange a suitable date - alternatively you can email us first to check availability.
If you prefer, we can bring our soap-making experience to you. All we need is access to power, water and a sink. Please give us a call on 07732 901150 to discuss options.
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. We can also bring this private group experience to a venue of your choice, subject to suitability. Please contact us for prices.

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 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.
If you would like to book an experience for a larger group size please email us.
