October at Significant Seams

This October, Significant Seams is in Campaign mode. We are joining forces with the Campaign for Wool, the Campaign for Drawing, and the CSV’s Campaign for Volunteering. We see all three campaigns as central to the ‘seams of community.’ We’ve tried to plan a programme that integrates these causes: but decided we could do more than get some of our volunteers to draw pictures of wool….

In October our after school craft club will learn to knit – and work together with participants in our regular Learn to Knit class, and our Neighbourly Knit and Stitch group, to make what’s needed for a “picKnit”  – a woolen food picnic for Wool Week (October 9-14).

In support of the Campaign for Drawing, we will welcome a new edition to our programme: a drawing class for mums and their babies and have a special “Drawing with your Sewing Machine” class.

Our volunteers contribute hugely to our capacity, expertise and programmes, and many have first hand experience of the health benefits of craft. In a special series of workshops (The Crafteer Classes!) and blog posts we will highlight how volunteering enhances our work.

Register to volunteer by emailing volunteer@significantseams.org.uk

or in person at Significant Seams at 131 Wood Street, E17 3LX.

Events can be booked online at www.eventbrite.co.uk/SignificantSeams or in person at Significant Seams at 131 Wood Street, E17 3LX.
