Craft Daft on a Raft is a floating art and craft studio, located on the Forth & Clyde Canal at Kirkintilloch, next to the ‘The Stables’ pub and restaurant.

Our activity and *venue is ideally suitable for school age kids (or from pre-school of 4yrs) upwards to adults.

On weekends and school holidays we mainly operate on a ‘Drop in’ basis and mid-week during term-time we run kids craft clubs (booking essential).

We also occasionally run adult craft evenings and events  as well as being available to hire for parties, and groups too.

imageWe offer a large variety of items to paint & decorate with decoupage, foam clay, glitter, gems etc.  So come along and go craft daft, on a raft!

*Our venue is small therefore we can’t allow prams/buggies on board as they block our only exit. We strongly advise against bringing children under 3yrs as our venue can get very busy and hot which can distress younger children.
