Finding Your Creative Flow – Emma Prill Workshop

Suitable for all levels. Including complete beginners.
In this workshop Emma will guide you through a range of experimental processes using a range of materials including charcoal, inks, and acrylics.  Exploring mark making, composition, colour relationships and abstract forms.
Emma will demonstrate ways of “Finding the creative flow” and help you put these into practice and discuss materials and ideas to continue your creative explorations at home.

You will achieve a series of works on paper that are your own colourful collection of processes and ideas from a nurturing creative day.

Emma is a local Tauranga artist and art educator.  I recently went on Emma Prill’s workshop. I was a bit nervous because I thought I might not be good enough but found the whole experience both uplifting and affirming. The motivation was thoughtful and sincere, and everyone worked on a number of projects at their own pace with as much or as little input as they wished.  I would LOVE to attend another one as I got so much out of it.

Stained Glass Workshop

Learn an age old craft in our stained glass workshop!

This is usually held as a one day workshop on a Saturday, though we can arrange other days and times by arrangement.

We will teach you how to work to a pattern to make a stained glass item using the Tiffany, or Copper Foil technique.

You can pick any project that you fancy, depending on your glass cutting skill level, and your level of confidence, but it needs to be reasonably simple in order to get through all the stages and get it finished, ready to take home. Once you have all the techniques, then you can go on to make more complex pieces either at home or in future workshops.

We will help you choose your design and we have loads of patterns and ideas and loads of interesting glasses to choose from.

To undertake the Stained Glass class you will need to have existing glass cutting skills. If you don’t already have experience in this area then you will need to complete our short Glass Cutting Class prior to enrolling.

See our Glass Cutting class for more information

Where: 171a Elizabeth Street West, Tauranga
Koha: $10.00 for Society Members, $15.00 for Guests

Life Drawing, Figure Drawing… the act of drawing a living person.
It’s one of the most challenging and interesting ways to develop your drawing skills. Skills that translate to all aspects of art making.
It’s also a great way to escape into your own world for a little while.
This is an untutored session, however, we won’t leave you completely alone if you are new to it and need a little help getting started. It is a very friendly, mixed level, session and you will be surprised what you can learn and achieve with a little encouragement.
If you are an experienced artist or student a Life Model will give you unlimited inspiration and a chance to experiment with your technique, materials and style. And we all appreciate and are inspired by new approaches.
We always take time for a feedback session before we leave. This is a positive and invaluable part of the session. It is inspiring looking at what worked during the session and why; sometimes the less obvious “works” provide the most interesting insights. There is always something to learn.
Bring your own drawing/painting gear (any media is fine), there is usually sugar paper available for sale at the Art Room. We do have some easels at the rooms, but they are limited. If you have your own please feel free to bring it along.
Please turn up in time to assist with set up, and stay on to assist with pack down. We are a self supporting group and if everyone helps it is very quick and easy.

PS:  If you are interested in modelling and are available please feel free to PM me. We love experienced Models, but are happy to use a sprinkling of “new” models… so don’t be reluctant if you haven’t done it before.

Glass Cutting Workshops

About the Classes
This glass cutting workshop is ideal for you, whether you are brand new to cutting glass or wanting to improve your existing techniques.

Public Lecture Series: Rangatira mo Apōpō: What does it take?

Belonging means we can participate in society without having to compromise who we are. Unfortunately, this has not been the reality for generations of Māori learners in Aotearoa. Changing this situation requires rethinking and redefining our personal contributions so that it is no longer tenable to ignore who our learners are or force them to fit an education system that continues to alienate them. Learning from indigenous voices can assist us in preparing our rangatira mo apōpō (leaders for tomorrow). However, it also means our nation’s histories and the implications of unequal power-relations must be more ‘critically’ understood.

Professor Berryman will reflect on critical consciousness, the prioritisation of new strategic relationships, the importance of revitalising forgotten histories and a process for deep learning that is capable of bringing about unlearning, new understandings and profound change within a pedagogy of radical hope.

Date and Time:
Monday 2nd August 2021. Doors open 5.30pm. Lecture starts 6.00pm.


This is a free event but registrations are essential.

Please register here.

Professor Mere Berryman
Ngāi Tūhoe, Ngāti Awa, Ngāti Whare
BEd, MEd (Hons), PhD
Director, Poutama Pounamu

In her work, Professor Berryman aims to challenge the pervasive and historical discourses that perpetuate educational disparities for Māori students and disrupt these through school leadership and reform initiatives. In her research, she combines understandings from kaupapa Māori and critical theories, and she has published widely in this field. In 2016, she was a recipient of the New Zealand Honour, Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to education and to Māori in education.

The Tauranga Public Lecture Series is a free community event and open to the public to attend.  Registration is essential.  Please register your attendance by clicking on the ‘REGISTER’ button and present your eticket at the door.  

The popular public lecture series here at the University of Waikato, Tauranga campus on Durham St  is usually held throughout the year on the first Monday of each month.

While you can expect the same quality of speaker and topical subject matter, We have decided in this COVID era to simplify our refreshment offering, and complimentary tea/coffee and a slice will be available for you to enjoy from 5.30pm.

Pastel Painting – Tauranga Society of Artists

Pastel painters love the immediacy of drawing with a rich and painterly colouring power. If you haven’t used them before you may be surprised at how easily the essential techniques can be mastered. Learning to handle the pastels and the attractiveness of the work you can produce is very satisfying.
You are welcome to attend Mary’s sessions and see for yourself the versatility of this medium which is suited to either large, ambitious compositions right down to small quick sketches. The whole pastel process is one of ease and simplicity – no palette to organise, no canvas to prepare, no need for water or turps and no clean-up afterwards.
Mary is passionate about her medium and will welcome you to her sessions to share the pleasure of working with pastels and will show the various types of pastel available, their wide range of colours, subtle hints and textures.

Tauranga Fuchsia Group

The Tauranga Fuchsia Group holds monthly meetings at 1.00pm on the last Saturday of the month.
At each meeting there is a mini workshop on some aspect of  fuchsias or fuchsia growing. The meetings are held at the Arts and Crafts Centre. 

Fuchsias look like dancing ballerinas, especially after the rain.  There are over 2000 varieties in a range of colours from the pinks and reds to the orange and white. They are not hard to grow.  They need to be fed and protected from nasty bugs and things, like most plants, but they are very easy to grow from cuttings.  In fact, they can become quite addictive.

All are welcome to the monthly meetings.

Day: the last Saturday of each month.
Time: 1.00 pm
Venue: Tauranga Arts & Crafts Centre, Corner Elizabeth Street & Takitimu Drive, Tauranga

Contact:  Pat Mitchell (07 579 1655) or Noeleen (578 4643)
