Last week our Craft Café Govan members launched their Back Court Concert exhibition at The Boardwalk.
The amazing work of 50 Craft Café members was celebrated with a beautiful showcase of their work from the past year. From an Indian ink project to watercolours from the community garden. As well as individual artwork from members past and present.
The main event was the Back Court Concerts project, celebrating the playful performances the members put on in the back courts as kids. Including a miniature tenements set, a crankie shadow puppet machine, and some performances by the members.
Thank you to everyone who came along and helped celebrate our amazing members. The exhibition will be on display till 17th November at The Boardwalk and we highly recommend you pop in to see the wonderful, nostalgic pieces of art!
Location: The Boardwalk, 105 Brunswick St, Glasgow
We are celebrating the creative achievements of our Craft Cafe Edinburgh members. The Spring exhibition features art made between May 2022 and February 2023 in the three Viewpoint care homes in Edinburgh.

The work on display celebrates the creative achievements of residents from St. Raphael’s Care Home, Marian House Care Home, and Lennox House Care Home, who have attended Craft Cafe. The collection demonstrates a wide range of themes, interests, styles, and techniques – and aims to highlight the uniqueness of each person’s creative expression.

It is an honour to be a part of people’s creative journeys; it is a pleasure to listen to the stories of our members and support them to play and experiment with art. Last year saw the return of friends and family to our Craft Cafes. We have sadly said goodbye to our lovely members at Lennox, following the closure of this care home in December 2022. However, we look forward to welcoming Viewpoint tenants to Craft Café again for the first time since 2020.
