An art-making workshop with Farheen HaQ + Rachel Maclaren
As part of the exhibition Being Home
How do you balance modern motherhood? What does it feel like to be pulled in many directions? How do you navigate the ecstasy and the agony of child-raising?
Inspired by our current exhibition Being Home, join us for an afternoon of using your personal stories of motherhood as source material for creative expression. We will uncover the many faces of motherhood by working with found objects, free-writing and mask-making. Dig deep into the well of your experience and make your mark.
Fee: Free admission. Advanced registration required, as space is limited. Please call of drop by the gallery to register. Basic materials fee $10 each (payable when you register)
Participants: Mothers of all ages.
Materials: Please bring one object from your home that represents motherhood for you. All other materials supplied.
