The Community Living Room, The Wood Street Hub (2012- 2017)

Urban Isolation and empty high street shops inspired a radical creative intervention: a co-created community living room where all were welcome, tea was freeflowing, and creative activities and a stitch and craft library empowered and instigated connections. Catherine led a bold initiative to redevelop a shop, flyer extensively, and get people making together. The Significant Seams Hub was open in Wood Street Walthamstow from 2012- 2017. The Hub fostered many projects and over 20,000 hours of volunteering. As at 2022, regular volunteers to the Hub continue to collaborate on ongoing, evolved, and new initiatives in Waltham Forest.
