Welcome to the Bowerhouse
'Maidstones most intimate venue'
We are thrilled to have received some funding from UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, enabling us to host a series of workshops through the year. The first one will be on the 4th of March from 11am-3pm.
DIY BOOKBINDING : Make your own sketchbook or notebook
This workshop will introduce you to a range of traditional bookbinding techniques, while also allowing you to get creative. You will construct your own book from scratch, from folding the sheets of paper (the signatures) to stitching them together and designing an embossed cover. We will use the beautifully simple techniques of kettle stitching and embossing to create unique objects. Sign up if you enjoy making things with your hands and learning something new.
We are excited to host this workshop with some brilliant teachers, Jacob Farrell and Melanie de Quincey, both graduates from the UCL.
These are free workshops thanks to funding from the UK prosperity fund. please book your place through the link above!
