Craft Café is a creative workshop programme for older people which provides them with the opportunity to engage in a range of arts activities with support from an artist in residence.
The workshop is a place where they can learn new skills, renew social networks and reconnect with their communities.
Craft Café takes place in both community and care home settings.
