More about Beecholme

Beecholme is also the first postwar "mixed development" housing scheme in Hackney, with a mixture of houses and flats with the taller block having five storeys and containing one-bedroom and bedsit accommodation. It is featured in Volume 15 of Hackney History and was the site of Beecholme House, the family home of Maj. John André (d. 1780), who was executed as a British spy in the American War of Independence.

Book-binding workshops special offer

To see the handout below full size, right click on it and select "Open in new window".

Katy does quite a bit of preparation to try and ensure you leave at the end of the day with a completed book - journal, diary, scrapbook or whatever takes your fancy.

This is a really good deal and is probably not likely to be offered again.  

It's an especially good deal because you can, in effect, get free membership of the trust at the same time.
Just join the Clapton Arts Trust for £5/year and get this workshop for £40..
  ...and get a "members discount" on future workshops and events.

Use the "donate" button below to pay for the workshop, then send your payment receipt/reference & date along with your name and contact details to and get confirmation of your booking and a "Workshop Entry" slip emailed to you by return.


You can now join CAT online at 

...or you can  join the Clapton Arts Trust right here (and book the workshop date of your choice).

Using Gift Aid means that for every pound you give, the Clapton Arts Trust will receive a further 25p from the Inland Revenue, helping your donation go further.
This means that £10 can be turned into £12.50 just so long as donations are made through Gift Aid.  This makes a massive difference to the trust and doesn't cost you a thing.
