Bookings now being taken for the Drawing from Birth workshop with artist Helen Sargeant on Saturday 27th February 10.30-5pm. Helen will facilitate a creative exploration of your maternity journey, wherever you are on it and no matter how skilled or inexperienced an artist you are.
The focus of this workshop will be visualising birth by drawing on the participants individual and collective memories and experience of birthing. The workshop will also utilise examples from the representation of birth in art history, culture and contemporary art. Sharing of experience is to be encouraged by using the process of art making and its outcomes as a catalyst for discussion.
Helen is a visual artist who makes work about all things pregnancy, birth and maternal related. She is interested in lived experience as subject for art making and is fascinated with how art can help others to find new meaning, empathy and connection. You can find out more about her and her practice through the website www.helensargeant.co.uk
