The Arienas Collective is a group of local artists and designer-makers who are passionate about what they do, and who believe there is a creative soul within everyone waiting to be released.

We run creative workshop experiences from a relaxing home environment where you are encouraged to lose yourself in the moment, and to switch off from the everyday through focusing on the act of creating. We offer workshops in screen-printing, soap-making, silver clay jewellery, calligraphy, speed-sketching, art & wine evenings, lino-printing, portrait photography, macramé, knicker sewing, and more. In addition to our open workshops, we offer private workshop experiences for wedding and hen parties, special birthday celebrations, and corporate workshops either in our workshop space or at a venue of your choice.

Our open group experiences invite you to join - and make new friends with - other, like-minded people. On our private group experiences you invite your own group of friends and family to share an experience together.

The class size is kept small so that our artists and designer-makers can give you the help and advice you need to get the most out of your experience. You have access to all the equipment and materials you need, and will take home all the pieces you create.

Socially-minded refreshment breaks are an important part of every Arienas Collective experience, and whenever possible we source our food and drinks from the fantastic range of independent, local providers and producers we are fortunate to have on our doorstep.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Arienas Collective.

"When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be." (Lao Tzu/Laozi)

Go with the flow and let your inner creative loose.
