Craft Cafe on Tour

The members of Whiteinch Craft Café visited Dumfries House where we were stunned by the beauty of the place the precious possessions inside. The group stood next to an original Chippendale cabinet estimated at 34 million pounds! We were not allowed to take cameras into the house but here are the Craft Cafe members relaxing with tea and scones in the stable block after the tour and enjoying the impressive trees in the grounds.


CFC Animation Project

This week the project had visitors from Celtic to take photos of the activities for the Celtic View paper. Celtic FC are delighted with the work on the project from the Impact Arts team and a launch of the exhibition will be held on the 29th July. The Impact Arts tutors who have been involved in the project will be attending to help the children celebrate their achievement!
