Up to six participants at each workshop are asked to bring something that they've found discarded in their local neighbourhood, timber perhaps but not necessarily so. All participants must be aware that they attend at their own risk! (Amongst other things,) Woodworker Alexander Douglas Wright makes free standing or fitted personal and or site specific furniture. Please read the previous sentence once more then visit him and his collection of recycled timber at the Newtown depot of Wellington Wood Works, which is down the lane at 291 Mansfield Street.

Chris DeVeld is a local craftsman of many talents, who has been weaving for 10 years. He first learnt to weave at Whitirea polytechnic over 2 years worth of night classes. Saturday 06/03/2010 1pm-3pm Newtown Community and Cultural Centre; Seminar Room Gold coin Jelly this isn’t – simple printmaking using a gelatine plate This workshop uses a printing plate made from a slab of gelatine. You will learn how to use this printmaking technique to make images on paper and fabric. The inks and paints used are non –toxic and the plate can be composted or buried after use. Cathy Trewby is a Berhampore resident who graduated stage 3 (Advanced ) in June 2009 from The Learning Connexion focussing on textiles and printmaking. In her art practice she is keen on printmaking techniques that do not require access to a press and where there is an immediacy of creation. Monday 08/03/2010 2pm-4pm Newtown Community and Cultural Centre; Seminar Room Gold coin "I've always wanted to draw" Come to this workshop where you will be taken through some drawing and observational techniques that are very useful when staring to make an observational drawing. You will be more than surprised with your results. A great way to spend 2 hours. For complete beginners and those wishing to refresh their skills. All materials supplied. Rosemary Stokell is a Wellington based artist and art educator taking classes and workshops in the Wellington area and often further afield in both the North and South Island. Tuesday 09/03/2010 6:30pm-8:30pm Newtown Community and Cultural Centre; Seminar Room Gold coin Stencil Screen-Printing Participants will learn how to make their own stencils and then screen-print them on to t-shirts, fabric and anything else you can think of. Bring along a t-shirt or whatever you’d like to print on and any ideas you have of some images you’d like to print. Gemma Minogue is a local Newtownian, who graduated from illustration and design at Massey University in 2007. She believes unfalteringly in the limitless potential of stencil screen-printing. Wednesday 10/03/2010 3pm-5pm Newtown Community and Cultural Centre; Seminar Room Gold coin Design workshop – ‘everybody can design’ There is often a mystique about design and a thought that not everybody can design. Cathy believes everybody can design and this s workshop focuses on techniques that we can all use to help in our creative process. Because of the short time frame the exercises will concentrate on design ideas rather than creating an artwork or working with colour. Cathy Trewby is a Berhampore resident who graduated stage 3 (Advanced ) in June 2009 from The Learning Connexion focusing on textiles and printmaking. She believes that design concepts are in us all and just need some simple techniques and exercise to unlock them.
