Creative Mums is a 12-week perinatal programme for new mums experiencing low mood, anxiety or isolation. Workshops take place weekly in Stockport and Oldham and includes a free crèche to give mums quality ‘me time’.
Alternatively, participants can access the programme virtually.
The programme uses creativity and art-making to help mums to relax, build confidence, increase wellbeing, get to know each other and offer peer support.
All participants receive an art pack at the start of the course, so they are able to continue developing creatively outside of the workshops. During the programme, participants explore a wide range of artforms and themes meaningful to them. Final pieces are displayed in an exhibition at the venue or online at the end of the course.

The programme is open to Stockport, Tameside and Oldham residents.
