CRAFT CENTRAL CIC

is a creative education provider aiming to increase accessibility to craft activities and to support the creative sector in Dunblane and the surrounding areas.

Our stated objectives are:

  • to promote contemporary craft and support local craft makers
  • to remove barriers to participation
  • to reduce social exclusion in the creative sector
  • to bring provision for creative learning in rural locations in line with that available in the urban centres

Our accessible High Street venue houses studio facilities for the Central Scotland School of Craft and the Central Scotland School of Jewellery, two established centres for creative learning that have recently amalgamated in the Craft Central building.

CRAFT WITH A BIG ‘C’

Our contemporary craft gallery and shop offers an unparalleled selection of  handmade Scottish crafts made by our network of talented artisans. All of the work in our gallery is made by hand, in Scotland by the talented tutors and creatives we work with through the craft and jewellery schools. We have gifts for every occasion, including silver jewellery, textile accessories, woven homewares, quirky ceramics, and a lovely selection of  cards to go with them. 

We are open for browsing and chats six days a week. Drop in and have a look around, pick up a special gift, or book yourself a workshop!

CRAFTING THE COMMUNITY

Craft Central CIC is a community crafting initiative aiming to increase accessibility to creative learning and to support the creative sector in the local area.

Accessibility is at the forefront of all of our activities, and improving social inclusion within the craft sector is one of our main objectives. As part of our remit to remove barriers to access we aim offer significant subsidies on craft and jewellery workshops held in our high street workshop. Subsidies are supported by ongoing fundraising activity including grants from private trusts and public funding bodies, and from community giving through our ‘Pay It Forward’ scheme.

CRAFTING THE FUTURE

 Sustainability is at the heart of our business and the Schools are established hubs for environmental and ethical making, aiming to promote hand skills as a tool for sustainable living. Our current programme of Eco focussed workshops is supported by Creative Scotland and aims to educate future makers by highlighting environmental best practice while respecting the traditional skills of hand making. 

Our re-use hub for craft books, tools and materials rescues unwanted goods from landfill. Our regular re-use sales are a goldmine of affordable craft supplies, keep an eye out on social media for upcoming events. We welcome donations of good quality, usable craft materials, tools and equipment. Contact hello@scottishcraftschool.com if you would like to make a donation. All profits feed back into the running of the re-use hub and our subsidised workshop programme.
