Significant Seams is proud to be a partner of the Devon Recovery Learning Community, a Recovery College provided by Devon Partnership NHS Trust for the Wellbeing of people in Devon. All of their courses are FREE to the registrant. Anyone living in Devon can self-refer to DRLC and book onto the course (space allowing). Bookings have traditionally opened in mid-February and mid-August for a six month series of courses.
During the pandemic, we and DRLC quickly adapted to remote delivery of our courses – and these are now an ongoing part of our delivery. As part of this adaptation, new courses open for booking on a more ongoing basis. Subscribe to our email newsletter to be amongst the first to know as new courses become available.
Our delivery team bring a combination of artistic excellence, lived experience of mental ill health and recovery, arts & health research and training programme development experience, and advanced counselling education. Our courses are not therapeutic interventions – but rather creative ones. We foster an environment where our facilitators help participants experience and learn new creative processes, reflect on how the creative process makes them feel, and meet and share their creations and experiences with others. In short, these courses make accessing a creative course whilst in a vulnerable life moment imaginable, possible and fruitful.
