OCTOBER WORKSHOP // RETURNING TO WORK WITH CONFIDENCE

Workshops-3

Preparing to go back to work after maternity leave? Returning from an extended career break having raised your family and unsure how to get back into work mode? At a loss as to how to balance work and family life?

We have the answers!!!

On October Tuesday 24th we’re collaborating with Lindsay Snow (Understanding Kids) and Jennifer McCanna (leadership coach) to bring you an interactive evening designed to help you gain confidence in your abilities, recognize important transferable skills you’ve gained through motherhood and give you the confidence to transition to work with ease.

We’ll spend some time working through strategies for approaching your employer about flexible working and will ask the question ‘what do you
really want to get out of work?

The second element of the evening will focus on family life and how you can support your children on a practical and emotional level as you return to work. We’ll also be providing tips on how to keep the mum-guilt in check.

Both Lindsay and Jennifer are specialists in their fields.
Jennifer is talented and insightful leadership coach who works with clients to help them be as effective as they can be. She also works with career coaching clients who often seek her out because they are stuck and want anything from a complete career change to simply some help preparing for an interview. She has a particular interest in supporting women in leadership and as the mother of a 3-year-old and a 1 year old, she understands the juggle!

Lindsay is a highly regarded parenting coach who uses evidence-based research to enable parents to tackle their parenting challenges with confidence and compassion. She runs a wide range of workshops under her own company ‘Understanding Kids’ and helps parents enjoy relaxed and positive relationships with their children.

The evening will take place in the beautiful, relaxed surroundings of Daisy’s Bar (above the Great Gatsby) from 8-10.30pm.  Tickets are limited and priced at £10 you can book your place HERE

We look forward to seeing you!

display_IMG_7690

We’ve teamed up with Kerrie at Sew in the City to bring you a blissful evening of embroidery in the cosy setting of the Sew in The City workshops.

Kerrie recently took over the business, based in West Bar, and has already made the space into an interesting, welcoming, creative craft hub.

We’ve worked with Kerrie to tailor this workshop exclusively for Mama Social and we’ll be creating our own stunning designs.

Embroidery is everywhere this spring/ summer and this is an opportunity to learn the basics so you can expand your skills to embellish clothing, table runners or create personalised items.

You will learn the basic techniques for transferring an image onto fabric and basic embroidery stitches such as chain stitch, satin stitch and French knots.

Once you’ve practiced, you will be given a choice of images to embroider and taught how to frame and finish it in a small embroidery hoop.

Come and relax and unwind with great company, fizz and nibbles on Tuesday 27th June and learn a new craft. Who knows, it could be your hidden talent!

mums-night-cafe-bw

The upturn in the weather and the advent of Summer vibes is the perfect time to turn our attentions to our ‘Mums’ Night In’. Mama Social has teamed up with award winning Sheffield hairdressers, Laundry, to bring you an evening of indulgence and relaxation focussing on your own well being.

laundry

Laundry is about much more than just cutting and colouring hair; It’s is all about making you look and feel brilliant. They take great pride in their approach to finding out how you want to look and feel. The media spotlight is firmly honed ​on​ specialists who are worth their weight in gold when it comes to understanding and delivering supreme results​,​ which is what Laundry is known for.

Laundry are inspired by the time you spend in front of the mirror as you get your hair cut, coloured and styled​,​ and what our face, body and soul tells us on closer inspection. Ultimately we all want to look and feel the best we can with our hectic lifestyles and pressures increasing from all angles. During our Mums’ Night In we will be focusing on wellness, well-being and vitality to improve your glow when you look in that mirror!

We will be hearing from Sheffield wellness specialist Rachael Hibberd.  Rachael is the founder and creative behind Instinctive Health.  A Kelham Island based Yoga Lifestyle Centre, offering a wide range of yoga classes, workshops, massage treatments and Ayurvedic therapies.

A little over six years ago Rachael left a successful career in nursing with a desire to find a happier and more creative life and a greater sense of well-being.  Using the tools of massage, reflexology, yoga and the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, Rachael has learnt that feeling beautiful is very different from looking beautiful.

Rachael will be hosting the first part of our ‘Night in’ in the newly opened Laundry Juice and Coffee Bar, after a short break we will move into the award winning Salon, where we will also be joined by Laundry’s head technician Billie-Mo Tredgett for a short chat about hair health and happiness. Billie is a leader in her field and champions a new generation approach when it comes to colouring and improving hair health.

‘Mums’ Night In’ is free to attend and will be held in the beautiful Laundry Salon at Sellers Wheel and there will be treats provided by the Laundry Café. Places are limited so grab yours HERE, QUICK!

EVENING EVENT // Craft Social at The Chimney House

 

File 16-04-2016 13 53 58

Thursday the 14th May saw us hosting our very first ‘Craft Social’. We spent the evening in the serene surroundings of The Chimney House making beautiful things from our own hand crafted pom poms.

Beth Pegler lead the session and provided us with the inspiration by bringing some of her own hand made garlands, wall hangings and headbands (which are available to buy in her shop).
 It was lovely to meet up with some like minded mamas and chat over a glass (or three) of fizz. Getting to know each other, realising we a had lots in common, and sharing some hilarious anecdotes!
The gorgeous wool was generously supplied by Rowan wool and with Beth’s guidance resulted in some fabulous creations.
The headbands were particularly popular; it was a wonderful sight seeing all the mamas stumbling their way back across the cobbles with smiles on their faces and pom pom crowns atop their heads!
Massive thanks to everyone who came down and left the little ones at home, we know it can be hard!  Special thanks also to Beth for being our craft person extraordinaire we’re looking forward to working together again soon to bring you Mamas more Craft Socials.
If you’d like to come down to one of our evening meet ups then keep your eyes on our social media channels. Details of our May evening event to follow…..
