Coronavirus update

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

The boat is currently closed for bookings, drop-in painting and parties etc. due to the Covid-19 pandemic and will remain closed until it is safe to reopen.  Unfortunately due to the size and nature of our business , it may be a while before we can reopen for painting and crafting at the boat. I miss all you lovely customers and hope we can craft together again on board in the future.

In the meantime, I am selling craft kits here ( see shop above) and hope to move workshops and clubs online in the near future.

I would greatly appreciate if you could please support us by buying craft kits online as unfortunately we are one of the businesses that fell through the cracks and were unable to receive financial help.


I will be offering a collect service from the boat as well as being able to post out via Royal mail. 

Stay safe and well me' hearty craft dafties!

I hope to craft and chat with you soon.
