Craft Café: Renfrewshire & East Renfrewshire

We run Craft Café workshops in Paisley, Johnstone and Barrhead for people over the age of 60. These are relaxed, friendly and creative sessions to socialise and pick up skills from an artist-in-residence.

Our sessions in Renfrewshire and East Renfrewshire are run in partnership with FLAIR housing associations. They take place:

If you - or someone you know - are interested in attending, please contact Programme Manager Jenn Adams on 07976623552 or email

What people say

"There was a gap in my life until I found this place... this is a game-changer for me."
Andrew, 83

“My mum has always struggled to make friends and I can’t believe we’re talking about the same woman. It is so great to hear that she can have a giggle at the Craft Café and is even popular there!”
Gloria, daughter of Craft Cafe member

“I had not seen him laugh for six months until he came here. It was an instant fit and he talks about the place when he is away. Whatever has happened to him in here has germinated... it has widened his world vastly.”
Stepdaughter of Craft Cafe member
