The first and only Artists studio model
with Integrated Childcare


The Mother House Studios (MHS) is part of Procreate Project. The MHS is a pioneering model, a creative solution to a proven lack of viable provision that sufficiently supports professional artists during pregnancy and motherhood/parenthood.  


The model is based on integration, offering a working space, a dedicated and open-plan laboratory for artists to work, and an interconnected, inspiring space, dedicated to children who have the freedom to move between the two rooms.


The responsibility is shared between childcare facilitators and mothers/parents, all jointly responsible for hands-on care work. The working space is open and a communal kitchen allows time for aggregation and space to find group strategies and inspiration to further maintain a sustainable integration of life and work practices.


The model is affordable and offers a solution that isn’t contingent on compromise, which benefits the wellbeing and mental health of womxn, children, and families; creating prime conditions for the production of works that would not otherwise be created.

" One of the most innovative civic initiatives in London in 2018...The Mother House Studios has the potential to inspire step change in various sectors and the project will have a much bigger impact if spread around the city” – Sadiq Khan Mayor of London
