Bringing generations together in Govan
Our Govan Craft Cafe recently completed a project working with the local Pirie Park Primary School.
"I really enjoyed it. I think it was so fun, I loved it. Everyone there was so funny!"
"I enjoyed marbling and I don’t want it to finish because I really like art."
Morgan, Pirie Park student
"I thought it was absolutely brilliant! It brings you back to your own childhood days, but I wasn’t as clever at school – some of their drawing were amazing. They were enthusiastic, inquisitive – always asking questions. I have now got a few new pals!"
Danny, Craft Café member
"They did not see us as ‘old’, they called us by our names and just accepted us. They were also asking from week to week ‘how are you doing?’ it felt like they saw us as friends."
Suzanne, Craft Café member
"It was interesting to see how some of those pupils, who can be disengaged in class and find it challenging to collaborate with others, engage and work with their senior partners so successfully. Some of the pupils described the members of the centre as their friends and it was a valuable way of developing social skills and empathy. The sessions surpassed my expectations and the ‘feel good’ factor it created in the children and adults was palpable. It was a great way to bring the generations together and I hope this can continue."
