Family storybook workshop

Due to COVID-19, a date has not yet been set for this workshop in 2021. We will provide updates on this page in future. 

Documenting the story of how we became a family with the help of a donor or surrogate

Knowing how to tell and what to say about how your family came to be can be a little daunting. However there are many creative ways to start the conversation early.

Come along to a fun and interactive workshop with other parents and learn how to create your very own personal family storybook to share with your child.

Facilitated by Kate Bourne, our Senior Community Education Officer, and mothers of donor-conceived children who have created storybooks, this workshop is an opportunity to see examples of the different mediums that can be used to create your family storybook. The workshop will assist you in creating a vision for telling your own family story and help you develop a plan to get you started.

We welcome parents who have used a donor or surrogate to create their family. Individuals or couples contemplating donor conception or surrogacy may also attend.

The date of this seminar is yet to be confirmed. If you would like to know when this event is next held, you can subscribe to the VARTA newsletter.
