Still Parents

A series of free art workshops in partnership with SANDs, Stillbirth & Neonatal Death charity

Still Parents

Baby loss leaves a lasting impression that few can see but those who have experienced will always feel. In partnership with Sands, Stillbirth & Neonatal Death charity, the Whitworth are launching a series of free art workshops for those who have experienced the loss of a baby during pregnancy or just after birth.

Explore and share your experiences through art with the help and guidance of an artist alongside support from Manchester Sands. Learn new skills in the beautiful, calm and inspiring setting of the gallery.

These sessions will focus on art-making, providing a relaxed and informal environment to meet others who understand. Absolutely no art experience necessary.

Still Parents at Home

During the Coronavirus pandemic, we have taken these sessions online. We know these are challenging times which can really bring the pain of losing a baby or child to the complete forefront. We are still welcoming new participants during this time. If you or someone you know has experienced the loss of a baby in pregnancy or just after birth then email Lucy Turner at the Whitworth.

Upcoming session dates for 2021 are to be confirmed

Free, please contact Lucy in advance by email to join future sessions

These sessions are supported by the Friends of the Whitworth

Please note:
 All Whitworth events are run on the understanding that all participants will be respectful and thoughtful to others. It is our responsibility to create spaces online that are welcoming and safe. Any behaviour that affects our ability to maintain such values will not be tolerated and attendees will be removed by the host.
