Extra Workshops At The Nathan Homestead

Extra Workshops At The Nathan Homestead

With winter on the way why not get creative and discover a new hobby to keep your life interesting during the colder months. In June three additional events are planned at the Manurewa Community Arts Centre (Nathan Homestead), each unique in their own right.

A one-day workshop for Glass Collage with Linley Tuahine will be held on Sunday, 13 June, 10am - 3.00pm. Linley has adapted the applied art of leadlighting and added a new dimension. Using memorabilia and coloured glass in a collage process, the student creates a unique work of art that not only looks beautiful, but has meaning.

This is a chance to utilise old bits of china, shells, jewellery, coins, etc. that would normally have no use, and give them a new life in a personalised work of art. Linley has previously exhibited her work at Nathan Homestead and the Mangere Arts Outreach, which was enthusiastically received and admired. Her work is in demand and is commissioned from all over New Zealand.

Mark your calendar for another fabulous Antiques Road Show, scheduled for Tuesday June 15, 7-10pm. Mary Dixon of John Dixon Antiques returns to Nathan Homestead for another illuminating evening. This is a rare opportunity to have your treasures valued by antique expert Mary Dixon who has appeared on TV with Mary Lambie & Jim Hickey.

Mary has a long established career in antiques, and for the past 20 years has owned and operated John Dixon Antiques. Although Mary is an expert in antiques over 100 years old, she has a broad knowledge of all antiques. Don't miss this unique opportunity to take some of your precious pieces (no more than three transportable items) of china, porcelain, glass, silver and collectibles, and enjoy seeing and hearing about others' objects too.

Manukau residents have a timely opportunity to develop creative skills of another genre in a one-day workshop entitled 'Tips for a Wonderful Wedding' with professional wedding planner, Janet Cibilich. Learn how to plan for an enjoyable, stress-free wedding, with topics including theme, budget, flowers, photography, videography, invitations, choosing a venue, timetables, and much more!

Attendees will receive a personal planning pack (normally valued at $275) and many practical tips for saving costs without compromising quality. If you're planning a spring or summer wedding, you won't want to miss out on this value-packed workshop.

The above workshops are just an example of the incredible range of classes and events the Manurewa Community Arts Centre offers throughout the year. Keep active and interested this winter, discover a new interest, meet new people and keep the winter blues at bay.

For more information on the above classes please phone the Nathan Homestead on 267 0180, and for details of others classes available see the latest Arts in the City brochure from your nearest library, arts centre, or the Manukau City Council website www.manukau.govt.nz
