We’re excited to be bringing  the Student Maker’s Market back to No.34.

This fabulous handmade Valentines Market is showcasing talented young designer makers from all over Kent with a focus on Swale makers. There will be fun free workshops throughout the day that you can take part in run by our very own young makers. Also watch a live poetry performance.

High quality, innovative and unique products – from handmade jewellery to candles and ceramics.

Directly support a young business – Student Makers Markets help young creatives start their own businesses by supplying FREE stalls and equipment, plus workshops in presentation, production, market trading and business.
