WITH LINDSAY JANE HUNTER

Need a safe space to connect with other mothers* and their babies?

*Inclusive of all humans who birth, non-binary parents, those who identify as m/other, parents and carers who feel this space is for them.

Join the Maternal Journal club, a safe space for mothers and their babies where we come together, connect with each other, get creative and learn about our mothering journey.

It’s a time and space to share, reflect and connect. A time to pause in our busy weeks. Somewhere for all mothers to take up space and be unapologetically yourself.

Journaling might include writing, drawing, collaging, painting, doodling or playing.

You do not need to consider yourself to be "creative" or "arty" to enjoy these spaces. The invitations to journal are super gentle and there is no pressure or expectation. I will guide you along the way. All art supplies will be provided and all we’ll do is nurture our mental health and wellbeing.

This will be a closed group so you will need to sign up for the full nine weeks. This means you will see the same faces each week and we can build a safe, supportive space together.

WHAT IS TRY IT?

Try It! is a programme encouraging Coventry residents to have a go at a range of new, and often quirky, health-giving creative activities during our year as UK City of Culture.

We believe in social prescribing – the idea that, by taking part in community activities, we can all improve our health and wellbeing. 

This project aims to enhance the lives of community members and leave a lasting legacy of creative activities in Coventry.

For each workshop, you can book tickets online or pay at the door.
