Led by Babes in Arms artist Annie Mackin, this workshop explores themes of the body and parenthood in Cuddon’s work, inviting adults and children to create hands and feet through sculpture and paint.

This event takes place on Tuesday 18 July, from 10.30am-12 noon, in our Learning Space, and is for parents/carers and their early years. Children go free; one child per adult.



Annie Mackin had been a practicing artist since 2009. Since having a baby in 2019 and soon after, going into lockdown, Annie’s work became about goddesses of childbirth and goddesses of reverence and protection of the home. Annie works mainly in oil paints but also works layers other mediums; oil pastel, ink, watercolour and acrylic. Annie founded the collective Babes in Arms with artist Elizabeth Power. Babes In Arms is a collective of artist mothers living in Hastings, St Leonards and Bexhill, who have come together through a shared experience of the inspiration and the difficulties that are attached to being an artist or creative whilst also trying to raise a child.
