Mothers Who Make is a growing national initiative aimed at supporting mothers who are artists & makers, in any discipline and at any stage of their personal or professional making. It was started by Matilda Leyser (Improbable Theatre) in London in 2014 and has rapidly spread across the country.

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

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

The monthly sessions aim to give creative mothers the chance to explore their practice with their children present, valuing equally their dual roles of mother and artist.  We want as many people as possible to be part of the unfolding MWM conversations. Our reach is across generations and art forms - we are thrilled by the plurality of voices that are part of this discussion.  In other groups professional connections have been formed and led to the beginning of joint projects between participants – so it’s a great way to meet and collaborate with other mothers from different creative backgrounds.

You are invited to join this inspiring and growing initiative. Please feel free to bring along your children, of any age, whether they are inside you, beside you or running around the room. But equally just bring yourself.

MWM is facilitated by a collective of local mother – makers including Jackie Singer.
