About this event

PLEASE NOTE: This event has been moved online to Wednesday 10th November, 11am-1pm and is no longer taking place at Effra Space in Brixon.

----------

Maternal Journal is a global community movement. We introduce simple creative journaling tools and techniques to fit in with everyday mothering and parenting. Our journaling guides and exercises encourage creativity and exploration of the huge changes we go through when we become parents.

For the launch of our new book on 21 October, we're hosting a series of journaling workshops with contributing artists from the Maternal Journal community.

----------

In this session, artist and birth worker Amy Dignam will guide you step-by-step through her journaling guide – Layered Self-Portrait.

Life as a parent causes dramatic shifts and constant flux in how we feel about ourselves. This guide will help you explore and reframe any complicated feelings you have about yourself. Loving yourself is really important and involves accepting your limitations and imperfections – we're all doing our best as people and parents!

----------

Maternal Journal is a friendly and open space. We are all creative and no specialist skills or experience are needed for the workshops. All art materials are provided.

The event is relaxed, so please join with babies and feel free to dip in and out as you need..

We'd love you to join us.

----------

Maternal Journal is for anyone who has been pregnant, given birth or is a mother or non-binary mother, parent or grandparent.
