My Time My Space (MTMS) is arts based project offering learning opportunities supporting women with severe and enduring post-natal depression.
I have been working with My Time My Space Radstock organised by Creativity Works http://www.creativityworksforeveryone.co.uk/mytimemyspace.php in association with BANES Health Visitors and Radstock Children’s Centre.
2 hours a week over a ten week period participants get time to think, chat, laugh, cry, create, bond, reflect, relax and breathe……….
The 10 weeks were structured to allow the women to go at their own pace and in the direction they chose; as the sessions were around Christmas the women wanted to concentrate on decorations and present making. Activities included making dream catchers, journals, Christmas decorations, cards and gift boxes and techniques included marbling, screen and block printing, embroidery, collage and decoupage.
