A new creative two-day course that helps you get to know the Eskdale Reserve by learning about important trees, making tree rubbings and turning them into fine art prints to take home.

You can learn about local ecology, practise a new drawing technique and get an introduction to lithography printing.

Tactile drawing methods, such as frottage (aka rubbings), can help individuals without art training to physically learn from and engage with the environment through exciting art-making processes.

The transfer of drawings to the stone and subsequent printing process will be guided by Auckland Print Studio’s experts in their workshop (based at Unitec), providing a rare opportunity for non-arts trained individuals to engage with an intriguing fine art printing process led by expert printmakers.

Everyone leaves with their own art piece.

This unique project will involve an alliance with Laura Donkers (Environmental artist), Kaipātiki Project Envirohub and Auckland Print Studio to develop a public engagement workshop that expands creative, ecological awareness through hands-on ecological restoration activity and an introduction to the stone lithography printing process.

Ecological education is used as a method to develop awareness and understanding of local ecosystems, the need for ecological restoration, and how local communities can get involved with groups who are addressing environmental issues in their area.

Artistic processes can help to develop knowledge and understanding.

Proudly supported by Creative NZ.
