Last August, I was able to volunteer at Safe Place, an organisation that empowers women and families with unsupported pregnancies to make life-giving choices. It has always been a hope of mine to facilitate a Creative Workshop for mothers because my personal journey with process art brought me the much needed rest when I was a first-time mother.
As the Covid-19 safe distancing measures now allows for visitors, I am grateful for this opportunity to be able to interact with a small group of mums. We talked about sensory play for babies and made discovery bottles. Through making these discovery bottles, there is creativity and the uniqueness of each bottle brings about significance in the play and bonding with their children. I hope this Creative Space brought rest and relaxation for these mums as much as it did for me. Looking forward to more sessions at the Safe Place.
