The Ochil Craft Association was formed in 1988 with membership varying from those specialising in original Scottish Crafts to the more mainstream craft producers.
The aims of the Association are to promote a public interest in crafts, encourage job opportunities in the craft industry, market craft business through craft fairs and exhibitions as well as compile a register of all the local craft producers.
The Craft Association has established itself as a local body of craft opinion and collectively organises meetings of special interest, training, specific skills plus publication of newsletters and promotional literature. We also attend craft fairs as well as run a retail outlet in the town of Grangemouth so that crafters can sell their work.
At present we have a good range of crafts represented by the members of the association, they cover knitting, crochet, acrylic art, mixed media art, photography, jewellery of various styles and materials, Jams and chutneys, Appliqué, Wood turning and a range of other wood items, Fimo clay figurines, Resin craft, stained glass.
We as an association are actively encouraging crafters to sell and exhibit their work.
The Craft industry is an important aspect of the diversity to be found in the region situated between the Clyde and Forth estuaries.
Year Established: 1988
