Learn English as a Second Language with Significant Seams – old

Come see us at the Significant Seams Hub in Wood Street Indoor Market.

Our pilot ESL sewing programme will combine beginners sewing lessons with English conversation. This class suits those learning English as a Second Language of any sewing skill level. We will use a community project as inspiration for both making and speaking in English. Zelda, an experienced ESL teacher, will team up with Catherine, to provide participants with some sewing vocabulary and a different way to meet new people and practice English in a non-threatening environment.

Each group will feature four participants and is offered at a very modest £5 per two-hour session.


We are also looking for foreign language speakers to volunteer to help translate our flyers. Please see our volunteer section or come see us at the Hub to help.
