Young Makers Club

 

 

On Thursdays during term-time

Come and take part in The Horsebridge weekly after school club, where you will be crafting and making a variety of creative small projects.  A space where young makers can explore a variety of art and craft activities that change each week. Look out for seasonal specials for half-terms and holidays.

We have recently been granted funding from Reconnect Kent to develop this club further so that we can include more young people, specifically young people with additional needs that may not usually be able to attend a club like this.   

We are now able to provide more specialist staff who have experience of supporting young people with additional needs. We will also now provide an additional quiet room next to our main art room 'The Studio'. This will allow space for young people that need a quieter environment to create in or that need to take regular quiet breaks.
