Poldrate Arts & Crafts Centre, located in Haddington in the wonderful Elizabeth Hamilton Buildings, offers a wide variety of arts and crafts classes and self-help groups for adults (16+ year olds).

Classes are affordable, small and friendly and accommodate a range of abilities. It’s a great place to meet other people interested in arts and crafts and spend time improving your skills, learning a new craft or just enjoying time doing something different.

PACC is run by volunteers. Classes take place in the Poldrate buildings which the Lamp of Lothian Trust  allows us to use. Our total running costs are partly covered by the class fees that we charge so we are always needing to fund-raise.
