Winter workshops offer wide artistic range

April 30th, 2013

The 2013 programme of the popular Winter Workshops series organised and run by the Motueka Arts Council was released today, featuring a lineup of 21 topics covering a wide range of artistic interests.

The programme will run through the winter months (June to August) and involve highly skilled tutors teaching skills at several venues, at a subsidised cost which is affordable to most participants - mostly in the $40 - $100 range depending on the length of the course.

The workshops have been increasingly popular in recent years, with last year's turnout a record to such an extent that some courses had to be run a second time to cater for extra numbers.

They are the highest profile activity of the Arts Council, which has a healthy budget to organise and publicise the courses and pay for venue hire and tutors. The workshops offer an opportunity to learn new skills, meet new people and have fun as you learn.

This year there are some new courses and some old favourites. They include the creative recycling used clothes, hat making, creating bling, creative knitting, mixed-media masterpieces, making roman blinds, weaving with flax, singing for pleasure, terracotta garden art, Steve Braunias' writing workshop, picture framing, stone carving, life drawing, classical French cuisine, advanced photography, learning to de-stress, painting in pastels and mask making.
