Spilt Milk’s one-to-one mentoring programme is tailored specifically to the needs of women and non-binary artists working in any creative medium and at any stage of their careers. By signing up you are taking the first crucial step toward manifesting the creative practice you want to achieve.

Our mentors are all practicing artists and mothers and therefore understand the unique challenges faced by women and mothers in the arts. With a wide range of backgrounds, skills and experiences to offer, they will be able to support and guide you to develop your professional practice with confidence.  

Spilt Milk’s Mentorship Programme lasts four months and includes 6 hours of face to face sessions (online) at times and dates agreed between you and your mentor, as well as follow materials after each session. The programme is designed to offer individual feedback and guidance over a prolonged period to allow a positive and trusting relationship to develop. No matter what stage you are at with your work, there are many different reasons you could benefit from a mentor. Whether you need critical engagement and feedback on your current work, help with the business aspects of maintaining a successful practice, or support to get unstuck and reignite your creative spark, your mentor will tailor the programme to your needs. Upon signing up, we will ask for your top three mentor choices and a little information about what you hope to achieve from the programme. This will help us to match you with the right mentor.  

The mentoring programme costs £330 and can be paid in two instalments. This ensures our mentors are paid fairly for their time and any surplus generated will cover the costs of our funded places. For this programme we are offering two bursary places for an artist/mother on a low income who could not otherwise afford to participate.
