Mothers who Make is a grass roots, national initiative, dedicated to supporting mothers that hold the dual roles of mother and artist.

Every kind of maker is welcome - professional and/or passionate –in any discipline and at any stage on their creative paths - writers, painters, performers, film makers, dancers, producers, musicians, crafters…

Children of any age are encouraged to attend too and are integrated into the meeting, for the dual roles of mother and artist arerecognised and given equal valuewithin all MWM events.

We want our MWM Reading hub to develop with you and provide a supportive, creative space in a number of ways; to connect, share, network and participate. We want it to be grown with and by you.
