Hello Craftcampers and friends of Craftcamp.
Craftcamp is back for a final workshop season for 2013, Dec 18, 19 & 20.
For this final workshop season we are changing venues.
We will be running the workshops in studio 29 at Toi Poneke Arts Centre, 61-69 Abel Smith st, Te Aro, Wellington.
Take the lift to level 2 and turn left.
However, I will meet everyone in the foyer 15 minutes before the workshops begin.
I have designed the 6 different workshops so that the craftcamp kids can make meaningful gifts or decorations for the holiday season or just some cool stuff for themselves in a fun and relaxed environment.
All workshops are limited to 10 students and are for the beginner to more advanced craftcamper aged between 5-14. I will adapt the projects depending on the skill levels of individuals and students are welcome to make as many items as they are inspired to.
Many students stay for the whole day. As long as they come with a packed lunch [and you let me know] , I will be there to supervise.
Please email me for more information or to reserve your child's place in a workshop.
In other news, I have an installation as part of an exhibition called The Leading Edge at the National Library of New Zealand in Molesworth st. The work titled Order Structure Pattern #2 has been made from 200 metres of extension cord and rope and 4000 cable ties! http://natlib.govt.nz/visiting/wellington/leadingedge
It will be on for the next 11 months, so please, if you get a chance, go and have a look. The greater exhibition looks at fantastic inventions and design that has come out of NZ. Something for everyone.
Thanks again for your support of craftcamp and by recommending the workshops to your friends and family and for attending my workshops and exhibitions.
