Ashford Mums! People United are looking for mothers in Ashford to join forces with recently arrived Syrian Refugee women for an exciting and unique art project to explore the theme of Home with an award winning textile artist.
 
You’ll work together to consider: What makes a place a home, how do women feel about home-making and what does it mean for different people?
 
The group will create artworks for a public exhibition in Ashford that will hopefully go on tour.
 
There is no need to have ANY previous experience of a project like this- it is all about learning new things together (and from each other!), discovering commonalities, having lots of fun and probably eating lots of biscuits! There will be 1-2 interpreters at each session and children of all ages are welcome.
 
When:
Thursday 19 April, 10am-12pm
Monday 23 April, 10am-12pm
Monday 30 April, 10am- …
Thursday 3 May, 10am- …
Thursday 10 May, 10am- …
With more dates in May- Oct to be confirmed.
 
Where: Concept Training, Units 1 & 2 Eden Business Centre, S Stour Ave, Ashford TN23 7RS.
 
Cost: FREE
