The focus of this trip is to observe at one site, we welcome you to use drawing exercises to look for patterns and rhythms around Macandrew Bay. Any level of drawing experience is welcome, focusing on marks and broader shapes of the harbour ecology! There will also be time to kōrero and chat about what we see, and how that slots into the whakapapa of the harbour in general.

Materials and snacks will be provided. Appropriate for all ages.

Numbers are limited so please register via email to
