Saturday 11th September Praise Signing with Pat Miller

We are delighted to have Pat Miller teaching our 10th monthly technique class in September. Pat has over 10 years experience of supporting deaf students and is qualified to level 6 BSL (British Sign Language). She provides signing support to various churches and Christian events. She is also a founding member of the CDFB having joined when it first started in 1990.

Pat says she began learning BSL in 1996 after seeing a Christian musical being interpreted by a deaf person. "I felt that this was what I was called to do." Her heart is for deaf people to have access to local church and to wider Christian events. Her main focus is on signing in worship.

In this workshop we will learn to sign some well known Praise and Worship songs using British Sign Language (BSL). BSL is a rich, visual language and is the first, or preferred language used by many members of the Deaf Community.

This is an open class for all abilities.

There's no charge for these classes although members are welcome to make a donation towards honouring the teachers if they want to.

Zoom login details are published in the Autumn 2020 Created 4 Dance magazine or can be e-mailed direct to members; just send an e-mail to info@cdfb.org.uk and we will send you all the details you need. The Zoom meeting will open at 9:45am each month for class to start at 10am. Remember, these classes are exclusively for CDFB members, so please don’t share the login details with anyone who is not a member.

If you, or someone you know would like to attend these classes but is not already a member of the CDFB click Membership and join now!
