Art Bank accessible art materials for all

Open fortnightly between 2-4pm on Mondays the Art Bank is an initiative that we have developed in partnership with Whitstable artist Catriona Campbell.

We collect unwanted arts and crafts materials (and books) and offer these on a “pay what you can basis” along with using some of the materials in Art Bank Live! sessions where you can try something new in an informal, supportive session.
