Stretch your cre­ativ­ity

Hamilton Press - - COMMUNITY COOKBOOK -

Do you want to stretch the bound­aries of your cre­ativ­ity? Visit the WSA Art School in the Art­sPost Build­ing in Hamil­ton.

Try Har­vest, Weave and Dye Harakeke with Tar­nia Ehu, Plein Air Paint­ing with Jen­nie de Groot or per­haps Paint like the Masters, a prac­ti­cal art his­tory class with Pi­eter Swanepoel.

Learn about im­por­tant works of art by ex­plor­ing artists’ tech­niques.

Pi­eter holds a master’s de­gree of fine arts and with his ex­ten­sive teach­ing back­ground on univer­sity level this is bound to be an in­ter­est­ing class.

Tar­nia, the weav­ing tu­tor, en­joys work­ing with nat­u­ral re­sources and shar­ing her knowl­edge of har­vest­ing, weav­ing and dy­ing harakeke.

Class projects will in­clude mak­ing putiputi/flax flow­ers, flower cones, koha kete, whiri wharaki/wall piece, waikawa/ big bas­ket and bracelets.

Paint­ing can be a lonely pro­fes­sion, so WSA is open­ing the stu­dios for mem­bers to use on Fri­day afternoons, 12pm to 3pm.

Ca­sual fees $8, please bring cash and pay into the koha box in the of­fice.

A great op­por­tu­nity to meet and paint with friends. Please bring your own ma­te­ri­als and tools.

If you are not a mem­ber yet, sign up now – it is only $45 per year.

Tar­nia Ehu.
