Covid-19 UPADTE...

In order to protect the safety of our Edinburgh members, and in light of Government recommendations around COVID-19, we are no longer meeting in our regular Craft Café/Creative Cafe locations.

However, we are working with each individual to provide monthly activity bags shaped to their interests. This is supported by regular online craft/arts activities; the provision of creative and exercise focused activities newsletters/booklets; and regular phone calls and welfare check-ins

If you are an older person, or wish to refer an older person to our service, please get in touch at hello@impactarts.co.uk or call 0141 575 3001

The Creative Café is a safe, social, and creative environment where older people can learn new skills, renew social networks and reconnect with their communities. The activities, facilitated by artists, are self directed by participants, harness the joy of creativity, artistic expression, experimentation and learning.

Creative Café at Inch Park is open on Thursdays and Fridays each week. Sessions run from 10:00am - 12:30pm and 1:30pm - 4:00pm.

Come along for a cup of tea and a chat whilst trying your hand at various artistic and creative techniques. No previous art making skills are necessary and workshops are entirely free.

You can read more about our work with older people on our older people's blog at https://www.impactarts.co.uk/blogs/our-work-with-older-people.
