Older people

Our flagship programme for older people is, Craft Cafe. It offers a safe, social and creative environment where older people can learn new skills, renew social networks, and reconnect with their communities. The activities, self-directed by participants, harness the joy of creativity, artistic expression and learning.

Craft Café has two distinct models of delivery, one within a community setting, the second within a care home. The methodology of self directed learning and choice flow through both models, as does the aim to connect with the wider community. Our community set Craft Café is held in Govan while our care home set Craft Cafes are held in Viewpoint homes in Edinburgh.

It is a relaxed and friendly environment where older people age 60+ can come along for a cup of tea and try their hand at a various artistic and creative techniques, whatever their experience or level of ability. Workshops are entirely free.
