At the front of everyone’s mind is climate change and how this is going to impact our next generation. Our guest artist Susan Mabin is an award winning Hawke’s Bay multimedia artist concerned with environmental themes.

She spends many hours combing the shoreline for materials that she transforms into artworks. Along our beaches lies a mountain of rubbish and Susan’s work helps to bring this issue to our attention.

Susan is creating an art installation for the Main Gallery at CAN, transformed from beach rubbish for the Hawke’s Bay Arts Festival, and we need your help!

Kids – join Susan for an exciting educational workshop during the school holidays and in the lead up to Harcourts Hawke’s Bay Arts Festival; listen to an environmental educator talk about the oceans, and collaborate with Susan on the creation of an additional sculptural piece for the installation, using clean rubbish we have collected from Marine Parade.

During the two workshops we will create a ‘Tree of Hope’ in bright rainbow colours that will act as a centrepiece to the installation.

These workshops are suitable for children aged 8+ only.

The workshops have been generously supported by the LEAF (Local Environmental Action Fund), via Hawke’s Bay Regional Council. This keeps the workshops affordable and accessible, so thank you LEAF!

Cost:
$5 per participant. (Only one workshop may be booked for each child)

What to bring:
All materials supplied.

NB: Although the rubbish will have been cleaned ready to use, you will need to wear old clothes. You will get messy, as you work with Susan and others in the group to create the spectacular tree sculpture!

How to book:
Email bookings@thecan.co.nz with your name, age and contact details, and which workshop you would like to join. Once your place has been reserved, we will email you with payment details, using reference EV1933.

Numbers are limited to just 10, so book quickly for this amazing experience.

The ‘Beached Forest’ Art Installation will be open to the public from Monday 7 October and for the duration of the Harcourt’s Hawke’s Bay Arts Festival. The Tree of Hope will be added to the installation after the last workshop; make sure you come back to visit and see it in place!
