A Norfolk museum is to run a unique six-week art based programme aimed at helping migrant workers to develop and practise their English skills.

A series of art and craft workshops will be held at Swaffham Museum from Saturday, February 14.

The sessions, which will be led by the museum's education officer Sian Hogarth, will use art as a means to help learn language.

The theme for the workshops will be hidden treasure and inspiration will come from the museum's collection.
