As independent makers, we love to share our knowledge of traditional crafts and support other makers and local creatives to do the same. 

Many of the makers whose products we stock will be joining us at Barkened to run workshops. From leather making, macrame, candle making and block printing, this is your opportunity to get close to the makers and create your own work. 

Workshops will be held at our store in Deal, for groups of up to 6-8 people and will be suitable for beginners, with no experience necessary.

Take a look at the planned workshops and if you have any further questions, please feel free to email us on and we'd be happy to help.
