Sculpture Tour and Workshop: Construction Challenge


$4 per student

1 hour 45 minutes

Age range

Years 4 and up

Join us for a sculpture trail across the City to Sea Bridge to think about form and structure. Listen to the legend of Ngāke and Whataitai, and go on a te reo Māori treasure hunt to find shapes/auaha and symbols/tohu. In the education studio take part in our construction challenge – a fast and furious hour of building, lighting, and documenting a collaborative installation using stacks of slotted cards. A great workshop to test ideas about weight, balance and building stable structures. Bring a camera to record your constructions.
