Reaching for the Sky with Manu Tukutuku Art Exhibition

Studio2 is a creative studio space where local artists with disabilities are supported to create artwork, experiment with a range of materials and develop their own styles and profiles. Margaret Freeman Gallery is a small art gallery dedicated to helping marginalised artists share their work.

As an opportunity to learn about traditional Māori kite making, practice whanaukataka (social relationships) and to add a touch of variety and vibrancy to the sky, the artists at Studio2 will celebrate Puaka Matariki by making a growing collection of Manu Tukutuku to be exhibited in the Margaret Freeman Gallery. We invite you to pop in view the growing exhibition (and see how many kites we can make!)

Manu Tukutuku Workshop

The creation of Manu Tukutuku (traditional Māori kites) is a cultural practice that has been associated with the rise of Puaka and Matariki for centuries in Aotearoa.

Join Ngāi Tahu kaiako Wetere Home and Rachel Solomon-Gould for a demonstration of the techniques and mātauraka (knowledge) used to create a large Manu Tukutuku, then make your own small version with raw materials gathered from the ecosanctuary. This is a fun, family-friendly event where participants can immerse themselves our local Ngāi Tahu culture in celebration of Te Tau Hou, the Māori New Year. Nau mai, piki mai!

Orokonui Ecosanctuary, 600 Blueskin Road, Waitati

 

Saturday 7 July, 10am 4pm. $5
