Mothers Who Make (MWM) is a peer support group and creative exchange session for mothers who are artists – professional and/or passionate – ranging from writers, painters, actors, dancers, filmmakers, photographers…every single kind of maker is welcome, and every kind of mother.
The sessions which are currently being run on Zoom (and taking place monthly), have gathered momentum over the past few years, aim to give creative mothers the chance to explore their practice in a room with their child. As the ongoing coronavirus pandemic continues to shift what it means to mother, and work, and create, being able to access a network of likeminded individuals and creators is incredibly powerful.
Mothers Who Make is an international grassroots movement, dedicated to supporting the dual role of mothers and maker/artist/creative. Since the Manchester hub was formed at HOME, a whole host of professional connections have been formed leading to collaborative projects, workshops and sharing of ideas.

So, if you are a mother and creator, MWM invites you to join their growing family of makers. Children of all ages are welcome too – whether they are still in your tummy, precariously perching on your knee, or running around the living room!
