The Halo : CONSERVATION + ART IN A LOCAL STORY OF CHANGE

Pioneer Hall (45 George St) Port Chalmers
Saturday 19 Nov 10:30am - 5pm

Drop-in to Pioneer Hall on Sat 19th Nov to try your hand at print making to share your vision for local biodiversity.  It’s informal and gold coin donation.  You can take a look, have a try, settle in, come back!

Come along to:
- Hear the latest news from the Halo & Beyond Orokonui Projects; find out how you can help out more on your own section or in other local areas
- Be part of the community story & inspire others (a calendar* will be produced from your artwork with sales supporting the Halo Project)

Never made a print before? No problem – expert helpers will be on hand including artist/printmaker Lynn Taylor. You’ll soon be rolling out ink & spinning the press wheel. Select from premade printing plates like the ones above … so you don’t even have to draw - just make choices!

Printmaking is a great way to interact with others and focus your ideas; you can work individually, or with friends and family groups can make a collaborative work so even the youngsters can be involved.

See the Stewart Island/Rakiura & Otago Peninsula communities’ inspirational travelling art exhibition on biodiversity & predator-removal.
