Event Details


​​Join us for a paper-making workshop with artist Moewai Marsh (Kāi Tahu, Kāti Huirapa, Ngāti Kahungunu ki te Wairoa), currently exhibiting in Ka kore, Kua kore. Learn the art of creating handmade paper infused findings from Bethunes Gully.

Date: Tuesday 11th July Time: 2 - 3pm

During this workshop, Moewai will guide participants through her unique artistic processes, inspired by her previous work "Tuturu'' exhibited at Paemanu: Tauraka Toi - A Landing Place, Dunedin Public Art Gallery. "Whakaora," much like its predecessor, utilizes handmade paper and pigments sourced from the land, driven by a deep connection to whakapapa and kaitiakitaka.

Moewai's artistic journey for "Whakaora" involved fieldwork and research around Bethune's Gully and Lindsay Creek, a place she holds dear from her childhood spent under the summit of Kapukataumahaka. In this hands-on workshop, participants will have the opportunity to engage the paper-making process with Moewai’s expertise in creating their own unique paper artworks using a range of materials, including leaves and discarded items found in Bethune's Gully.

No prior experience is necessary.

Limited spots are available, so please RSVP by 10th July 12 pm and contact lindsey@blueoyster.org.nz to secure your place.
