Join us for a sculpture trail from Civic Square to the lagoon and discuss a range of three-dimensional artworks in relation to the surrounding environment. Listen to the legend of Ngāke and Whataitai, and go on a te reo Māori treasure hunt to find shapes/auaha and symbols/tohu. Look closely at Tanya Ashken’s waterfront sculpture Albatross and learn about art that has been inspired by living forms. Then bend, twist and stretch wire and fabric to create a three-dimensional maquette. A great workshop to learn about form, space and scale, and to consider the properties of different materials.
