On: 6 October
At: Toi Ora Live Art. 6 Putiki Street. Grey Lynn, Auckland
From: 6:00pm-9:00pm

Get creative in a writing workshop and discover new skills on the page. The focus will be on poetry, but the techniques can be applied to novel or short-story writing, or to help you form that concept you need for any kind of writing project.

or Printmaking Workshop:

All levels are welcome for this fun and inspiring class. Make a unique print or gift card using the technique of Woodcut and Mono printing. Kick off your artistic practice or advance yourself to the next level at our friendly printmaking studio.

The workshop will be held at Toi Ora, 6 Putiki Street, Grey Lynn.
