Expecting Something works with new and expectant parents 25 and under and their babies, from birth to 2 years, providing a weekly safe artist-led creative activity for the parents and their wee ones.
The sessions take place on a weekly basis at WHALE Arts in Wester Hailes led by artist Katy Wilson. The content is shaped by the group and their interests. Sessions cover many different art-forms including performance, painting, sculpture, woodland crafts, music, creative movement and puppetry.
As well as the regular sessions the participants will be given the opportunity to visit and engage with cultural activities in their area. We hope that Expecting Something can create a bridge for participants to connect and understand that they can contribute positively to their local community.
We aim to empower these young parents – boosting their confidence, forging new relationships and developing strong bonds with their babies through regular and continued contact with arts and creativity.
If you, or anyone you know, are aged 25 or under with a little one from bump to 2 years, then why not come along to one of our sessions.
