Young People

Thank you so much for arranging for Catherine and Fran from Significant Seams to lead the creative project today. They were fantastic, extremely well resourced, with sufficient pre-prepared craft packs which allowed the sessions to run smoothly and seamlessly!  The children and all the staff thoroughly enjoyed the project and we are all extremely proud of the children’s finished products.  All the pupils have commented on enjoying the sewing, in addition to working well together and learning about Jack Cornwell, women at work during WW1, the background to why poppies are used to remember war heroes and the importance of global peace.

Holiday Activity And Food Programme

Young people who are eligible for benefit-related free school meals or have a SEND diagnosis, are able to take advantage of a free place on our School Holiday period workshops as part of Devon County Council’s government-funded Holiday Activities and Food programme.

Workshops for Schools

We love creativity assessment frameworks. We firmly believe in  the power of cross-curricular project-based learning. We are informed by collaborations between the arts, science and technology (Petty, Claxton, Robinson, Peat).

Our lesson plans are developed in conjunction with partners and supporters with relevant expertise. These include teachers with early years, art, and disability specialisms.

Arts Award

Significant Seams is an Arts Award Centre – which means we can directly support young people to get this National Qualification. 

Arts Award inspires young people to grow their arts and leadership talents, supporting skill development. Suitable for all abilities and age groups, Arts Award can be achieved at five levels, from Discover to Gold. We currently focus on Bronze & Silver, and working with 11-16 year olds.

We offer direct one-to-one supervision and support of young people at a chargeable rate.
