This week we received feedback from participants who joined our goodmakes workshops at the Baytree Centre in Brixton.
This feedback highlights the positive impact of sharing experiences and working together creatively to design fabrics in helping to form new friendships, create a sense of community and improve mental health.
The mothers who participated in the goodmakes workshops expressed that they learned much more than they expected and overall the experience was very positive.
