Govett-Brewster Art Gallery
8 Aug 2022
Interests The Govett-Brewster Art Gallery is New Zealand's premier contemporary art museum and home to the collection of modernist filmmaker and kinetic sculptor Len Lye. Admission is free.
Ahead of their new performance Ngā Manuhiri Taura (The Visiting Ropes), artist Louie Zalk-Neall invite you to attend public ropemaking workshops.
During the workshops, Zalk-Neale will teach you how to make miro (twined string) from tī kōuka fibre.
They will introduce some of their taonga made using this technique and help to guide participants’ own experimentation. Participants will also learn about the tikanga involved in harvesting and working with this material.
Following the rope making workshops, join artist Louie Zalk-Neale for a performance at a local beach. Audience members are encouraged to bring a taura (rope) along with them to the performance.
