Just a Mum?

Just a Mum?

“I’m just a Mum” is something our Muirhouse parents often found themselves saying. Supported by local artist Lauren Mclaughlin the group explored this topic using art.

Lauren taught the young women various art techniques including printing and spray painting. The outcome was a giant jigsaw expressing what it means to each individual and the group as a whole to be a Mum. It was interesting to see the diverse range of roles that you have to take on as a parent and that everyone is a lot more than ‘just a Mum’. The piece of art was then put on show at North Edinburgh Arts for two weeks in October.

Well done to all the parents and thanks to Lauren for all of her hard work and support. Thanks also to North Edinburgh Arts for allowing us to exhibit our work.
