Join artists Liana Leiataua and Ruth Robertson-Taylor at one of two workshops to create your own saipo (tapa) which will inspire a new mural for the community. The new mural will replace the eye-catching artwork which was originally installed to welcome people into the Newtown Library and Smart Newtown in 1991.
The workshops are suitable for people of all ages – so bring down the whanau or a group of friends. The workshops will be held in Newtown Library at 13 Constable street on 10:30am-noon, Wednesday 27 January or 2-3:30pm, Saturday 30 January.
All you need to bring is an one item from the Newtown environment (such as a leaf or flower) and one personal item!
If you are unable to make a workshop, create your own creative canvas! These will be on display at the Newtown Library throughout February 2021. Plus your creative artwork will go into a draw to win prizes from local businesses Newtown New World and Peoples Coffee who are supporting this community event.
