Craft Cafe/Creative Cafe

Craft Cafe Govan is currently not running due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Creative Cafe at Inch Park Community Centre, Edinburgh is starting back on Thursday 3rd September 2020.

There will be a few changes as we make adjustments to our delivery so that we can follow Scottish Government Guidance and Inch Park Community Sports Centre’s guidelines. Our first priority is to keep all members safe and well. As such we will be limiting the number of participants for each session, so that we can accommodate social distancing measures.

Creative Cafe will return with sessions starting on the afternoon of Thursday 3rd September. Morning and afternoon sessions will then be running from the 4th September on-wards (eg; 10th, 11th, etc).

We are still working with our Craft Cafe and Creative Cafe members to provide monthly activity bags shaped to their interests. This is supported by regular online craft/arts activities; the provision of creative and exercise focused activities newsletters/booklets; and regular phone calls and welfare check-ins.

Craft Cafe and Creative Cafe provide a safe, social, and creative environment where older people age 60+ can learn new skills, renew social networks and reconnect with their communities. The activities, facilitated by artists, are self directed by participants, harness the joy of creativity, artistic expression, experimentation and learning.

You can watch a short film about our Craft Cafe workshops in Govan and Edinburgh here. You can also read more about our work with older people on our older people's blog.

If you are an older person, or wish to refer an older person to our service, please get in touch at or call 0141 575 3001.
