Open Studios Waitakere: Peace/Protest Printing

Drop in to the Te Uru Learning Centre on the first day of Open Studios Waitakere to create a striking graphic block print. Using a simple technique, you will carve a design into a foam plate, then ink up and print. 

Source inspiration from our current pop up exhibition CAMPAIGN, which considers the prevalence of anti-nuclear sentiment in New Zealand’s art history. It revisits an era when artists across a range of disciplines were documenting, exposing and protesting the dangers of nuclear testing in the Pacific and the arrival of nuclear-capable warships into New Zealand waters. View pivotal works that express these concerns to source inspiration including Pat Hanly, Ralph Hotere, Claudia Pond Eyley and Wellington Media Collective.

Enjoy the instant result of peeling off your foam to reveal your unique print, capturing your thoughts and feelings on keeping a nuclear-free Pacific.
