MWM Exeter Mother-Friendly Life Drawing

Mother and artist Hester Berry pilots a friendly, untutored life drawing class open to mothers with children of any age.  As will all MWM events children welcome to join in, play, sleep, but the class is adult centred. This offers makers professional and/or passionate a chance to try something new, or to get back to a creative process which many mothers struggle to make time for.  The model will do a couple of long poses, allowing artists to interrupt their drawing at any point without missing short poses. Although this session is untutored, help and advice is available for anyone wanting to improve their drawing skills. Paper, pencils and charcoal are provided, with boards on a first-come-first-served basis.  Do bring your own materials if you prefer.

In partnership with Mothers Who Make Exeter & Exeter Phoenix

MWM Oxford Exhibition – Mothering And Making In A Time Of Climate Emergency

Mothers Who Make Oxford Hub is pleased to announce the opening of a multi-media art exhibit focused on climate emergency, to be held in The Lucy Room in Oxford’s iconic theatre, the Oxford Playhouse.

In the collaborative and stimulating atmosphere of monthly Mothers Who Make meetings, we have found ourselves confronting the looming environmental crisis of climate change. We aim to articulate through our artistic practice the responsibility we have toward our children to protect this planet, and to amplify the call for urgent social and political change. This group show includes visual artists, poets, musicians, and organisers, and will be a dynamic celebration of our power as creative and conscientious mothers. All are welcomed to attend; however, the Lucy Room is on the first floor of the Playhouse and is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible.

The exhibit, titled “Holding Against Extremes: Mothering and Making in a Time of Climate Emergency,” will be held from Wednesday 12th June 2019 until Tuesday 2nd July, 2019, with an opening reception featuring poetry, music, and facilitated discussion, on Wednesday 12th June from 12:30 - 2:00pm. The exhibit will also be part of Oxford Green Week, and can also be located on their events page.

Mothers Who Make is a growing national initiative aimed at supporting mothers who are artists – emerging or professional. Every kind of maker is welcomed, and every kind of mother. Oxford Mothers Who Make meets monthly at the Playhouse, children always welcome.

Supported by Oxford Playhouse
