We invite creative mothers of any background and at any stage in their career to explore their practice within a group of peers and consider and discuss how they balance these two vital roles.

This innovative nationwide movement comes to Coventry with the opening of a brand new hub!

Are you a passionate maker or artist and a mother? Do you want to develop your practice and connect with other mother makers? Would you like to meet in a welcoming, inclusive and supportive space to discuss the opportunities for growth and the challenges these dual roles present?

Opening with an introductory session in May, we invite creative mothers of any background and at any stage in their career to explore their practice within a peer support framework and consider and discuss how they balance these two vital roles.

Mothers Who Make is not a child centered play session or an adult only event but a third way - an adult centred group which welcomes children. Toys are provided. 

The second meeting of Coventry’s new 'Mothers Who Make' hub will focus on finding, exploring and maintaining creative spaces in motherhood, as inspired by the reflective article “Space!?” by Mothers Who Make founder, Matilda Leyser.

In this peer support session we will explore our own methods of holding onto creative spaces, whether they be mental spaces or physical places… We shall contemplate and invite you to share where you dream, nourish your ideas and remain creative in your daily lives.  How can we build and sustain a fertile community which supports us in our individual and collaborative endeavours? How do we navigate the impulse to make with the role of being a mother, and how do we carve enriching spaces for both activities to flourish?

Every kind of maker is welcome- professional and/or passionate – writers, visual artists, performers, producers, musicians, bakers, crafters, architects, historians ….

Every kind of mother is welcome- biological, adoptive, step, surrogate, foster, grand, great grand, to be ….

Mothers Who Make is not a child centered play session or an adult only event but a third way - an adult centred group which welcomes children. Toys are provided.
