A huge thank to Bina for creating and facilitating the ‘Drawn from motherhood’ classes. I joined the class almost six months ago, when my son was just two weeks old and am very sad to leave as I approach my return to work. I’ve enjoyed every session - the chats and catch ups, creating your own piece of art and just the fact that time each week was devoted to something completely different.
I find being creative in art class immensely refreshing and relaxing. DFM is a unique class that allows me to use a different part of my brain. The various exercises are free flowing and invite us to visually express our thoughts rather than trying to make a pretty picture to hang up. It is lovely to socialise with other mums... and the babies seemed to enjoy the class too!
"seeing my image I suddenly saw things from my children's perspective..."
I would highly recommend "Drawn from Motherhood". This lovely group has helped me immensely as a new mother. Its a great way for moms to get out of the house and be creative, without needing to be Picasso (which I'm not!)
"I enjoyed using colour and shape to think about the changing dynamics at home now that I have two children" Catherine and Ivy
"putting it down on paper really helps"
I really loved the class and getting the chance to use art materials
"so nourishing to attend"
It’s been a fantastic way to step back and appreciate just how lucky I am and how wonderful life is with a little one, while acknowledging and taking time to reflect on the stresses and pressures motherhood brings. I would encourage any new Mum to go along and give the class a try.
