The autumn term begins at Letchworth Settlement on September 7th as we offer yet another diverse selection of courses and workshops.
This year we have extended our offering around modern languages to include German for the first time and have beginners’ courses in Spanish, Italian and French as well as at higher levels.
For those who are creatively minded, there’s a wide variety of classes on offer ranging from abstract painting and machine embroidery to sugarcraft and flower arranging short courses. These classes are suitable for both beginners and experienced students and the work produced is outstanding.
Our special interest classes promise to be both thought provoking and insightful and include Understanding Ancient Art, Essential Tablet Computing, Gardens in Literature and Wonderful Ideas in Science.
As well as courses, The Settlement is hosting a special event on Sunday September 30th with an afternoon of Flanders & Swann which includes tea and cake and musical entertainment. It will be a trip down memory lane for many attending as they enjoy celebrated classics like ‘I’m a Gnu’ and the ‘Hippopotamus Song’. Tickets are priced at just £8 each, available online and from the office.
Sonia Weston, Settlement Manager explained: “We try to offer our students the widest choice possible and respond to feedback every year. We have added German and an extra evening upholstery class because we’ve had requests for these in recent months. With such a diverse choice on offer, I hope we can attract both old friends and new faces through our doors.”
