Join the Ayrshire Craft Army
This is the place to visit to find out what the Ayrshire Craft Army is and how you can help to make Ayrshire a better and more prosperous place for all of us.
Over the next few months and hopefully years, we are going to ask you to work with us to to show what we, as a community can do when we really put our minds to it. For the first small step in this process, we plan to organise a Craft Raid every month. Each month we will choose a craft shop in a nearby town and encourage as many of our crafters, customers and their families as possible to travel to that shop on a pre-arranged day and buy something from that shop. It doesn’t need to be a huge purchase, whatever you can afford, but rest assured that you will be doing something amazing for the shop and for the crafters who sell their handmade crafts there.
While you are out and about, consider purchasing from other shops, having a meal or just coffee and a cake, which will also benefit others in that community. In return we will be asking other craft shops and their crafters to reciprocate and come to Irvine to do the same.
This is a very small beginning, but we hope that this little acorn will grow into a mighty oak.
Fill in the form below if you are interested in taking part and share with your friends, family and neighbours too. We can make our own community stronger and help other communies too.
