Release your inner creative on our 'Introduction to screen-printing' experience run by Edinburgh artists Jodie Powell and Brodie Sim. 


The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a supportive and welcoming home environment in the Edinburgh New Town. Spaces are limited to a maximum of 8 so our artists can offer hands-on help and support. All equipment is provided, as are all the materials you will need. Just turn up, leave any day-to-day worries behind, and immerse yourself in creating something unique.


On our 'Introduction to screen-printing' experience you will begin by learning how to design and cut your own stencil. Then you will mix your chosen paint colours ready for screen-printing by hand onto high quality paper, and onto fabric products. You will take home a framed print of your original design, plus a printed tote bag and tea towel featuring your design.


Lunch - featuring locally sourced products - is an important part of The Arienas Collective experience. We are fortunate to have a fantastic range of independent shops and producers nearby who we love to support. You will start the day with a welcome coffee served with a selection of pastries, and our buffet-style lunch platters feature a range of cheeses, meats and fish plus fresh fruit. Our breaks allow time to socialise, make new friends, and chat to the artists.

Our artists will support you throughout the day offering one-to-one guidance and tips on design, as well as encouraging collaboration through sharing of ideas within the group. They will do their best to answer any questions you may have.


The price for the day includes all materials, coffee, tea, lunch and your own designed products to take home. For more information phone 07732 901150 or email

Does this sound like you?


You never really meant to be ‘an entrepreneur’ - you wanted to be an artist, designer or writer, but that turned out to mean being self-employed.


You don’t want to become a slick marketing machine - you want to focus on the work that you love - but you need more income, otherwise you’re going to have to give up and go back to the soul-sucking 9-5.


You know more or less what you’re supposed to do to promote your business, but you’re trapped in a combination of overwhelm, procrastination and discomfort.


You want this business to work so much, but you don’t know how to get from where you are to where you want to be in a way that feels right to you.


The Art of Marketing & Sales will introduce you to a different kind of marketing and sales. Instead of broadcasting to the masses, you’re going to focus on building one relationship at a time, slowing down and having real conversations. 


Instead of the pressure to sell, sell, sell, you’re looking to find the perfect fit – the person who already wants exactly what you have and doesn’t need to be convinced or persuaded about it.


In this workshop you’ll find out:


  • What your real business strengths are (they may not be what you think)

  • How to make the act of being of service the key to your long-term success in business

  • How building deep, lasting relationships can lead to all the sales you’ll ever need


Your workshop host is Sophy Dale, business mentor. Sophy helps creative people build an ethical and sustainable business so they can earn good money while staying true to themselves.


This workshop is for creatives, and 'would be' creatives, who would welcome a new perspective on selling and marketing, and an opportunity to meet with like-minded people in a welcoming and supportive environment.

Spaces are limited. The price for the workshop includes refreshments.

All The Arienas Collective workshop experiences are also available as a private group booking. Please email us for details.


For more information phone 07732 901150 or email

Please note that 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 food preferences or allergies when booking.
