Kings Road Street Market

The popular Kings Road street market started in its present form as part of the St Leonards Festival in 2013. Regular monthly markets have run from March/April through to late November since 2015 and have quickly become a seasonal favourite to this fashionable part of St Leonards-on-Sea! The new season starts on Saturday 6th April, then every first Saturday of the month.

Showcasing new businesses from crafts to vintage, promoting the eclectic range of St Leonards independent traders, this market continues to grow. Grab a bite to eat at a range of street food stalls, sit and watch the world go by, find that unique something for a gift or for the home, there's something for everyone.

Workshops in the shop

Paper crafting has seen a real growth in popularity and it’s easy to see why. The materials are accessible, eco friendly and the results last much longer than their fresh counterparts. Paper flowers make great gifts, wedding decorations or embellishments for your home.

During the session, you will make your own paper flowers with professional paper designer Laura Reed, following her step by step instructions. Laura will teach you her tips and techniques for petal forming, folding and curling as well as how to construct stems and different flower centres. You will then have the chance to practice your new skills by designing and making your own flowers using lots of beautiful papers from her stash. If you have some paper at home that you would like to experiment with, please do bring it along.

You will leave the workshop with at least three stemmed paper flowers and the skills that you need make more flowers at home.

All materials provided, £30 p/p contact me or laura@laurareeddesign.co.uk to book or for more details, or pop in the shop.
