Cossachok Logo


Free, creative workshops for all the family are organised throughout the year in partnership with our fellow tenants here at Trongate 103. Advanced booking is advisable as places are limited and the sessions are very popular!

Each year there will be a number of unique and special events, whether specifically for Café Cossachok or in collaboration with our partner the Russian Cultural Centre, or with other members of Trongate 103.

Workshop Painting



All of our workshops are led by experienced artists and craftsmen.

Avant Garde Poster Club

In collaboration with the Glasgow Print Studio, we recently held a printmaking workshop on the themes of the Russian Avant Garde and Glasgow. The group (aged 12-16) produced some amazing prints which can be seen in our photo gallery.

Russian Board Painting

An introduction to traditional Russian arts and crafts. At the end of this workshop the children and their parents were invited to have their pictures taken in traditional Russian costume with their artworks.

Toy and Puppet Making Workshop

This workshop for the whole family focussed on making toys and puppets from 'Dailrade' original materials from Baltic Republics.

Free family weekends

The third weekend of each month is a special family weekend at Trongate 103 with some fantastic free activities on offer for families to take part in. Throughout the year the organisations based at Trongate 103 are working together to offer a programme of activity for children and their parents / guardians to take part in, with a range of different art forms and creative activities on offer.

The next free family weekend will be August (tbc)

Please note these workshops tend to fill up very quickly. To be kept up-to-date with the latest family events, please call or email us to join our mailing list.
