Art x Language - Learn and Paint Traditional Patterns
Join us for an “Art x Language” hands-on workshop.
Japanese traditional patterns, as well as Kōwhaiwhai, patterns carry special meanings. In collaboration with Rieko Wood-ford Robinson, a renowned artist known for her exceptional work and profound understanding of Māori culture, this immersive workshop offers a unique opportunity to explore the significance behind these patterns.
