NatalNotes Creative Writing & Visual Workshops for Memoir & Wellbeing

Natal Notes was conceived in early 2020, following the rising pandemic and the removal of physical support spaces for creativity.

Mixing visual arts and creative writing, our workshops are designed primarily to support periods of transition; we use prompts to inspire creative output, and facilitate supportive exploration around topics such as pregnancy, birth, life and death.

Maternal Journal; Maternal Journal uses creative journaling to explore thoughts, feelings and experiences through pregnancy, birth and beyond for positive mental health and wellbeing. These workshops are best suited to those who are pregnant or who have birthed/adopted/have welcomed children into their care in the last 5 years, however during the pandemic they have remained open to all parents and carers.

Natal Notes; Weekly workshops to explore visual creative writing techniques for memoir - open to all ages from 18+

Otherhood; Visual arts and Creative Writing workshops to safely explore first person experiences of miscarriage, stillbirth and neonatal death - please note that these workshops are limited in numbers to assist open peer support and sharing.
