Whānau workshop: Ko Te Awa Kairangi te awa

Jul 30 2022

Join Artist Tessa Williams (Ngāti Rakaipaaka, Ngāti Kahungunu, Pākeha) for a whānau focused creative workshop.

Meet at The Dowse and journey with Tessa down to Te Awa Kairangi, our local river, to learn how to create unique pigments, paint, and creative tools from natural flora found in your backyard.

We live next to this powerful river called Te Awa Kairangi, but we often don't take the time to sit with that power.’ – Tessa Williams

Bring a warm jacket & sturdy footwear. If weather prevents the workshop being held outdoors it will take place at The Dowse.

This workshop is presented in connection with My River Goes With Me: Johnson Witehira & Julie Nagam, on at The Dowse until 18 Sep 2022.
