POSTPONED The Wairau Affray

A play about the ill-fated attempt by Nelson Colonists to confront Te Rauparaha and a party of his men at Tuamarina in 1843, in a dispute over ownership of the Wairau. The first major armed clash between Maori and Pakeha in New Zealand, and a pivotal point in Nelson's early history, and indeed New Zealand race relations.

After a staged reading and Q and A of the short play for Nelson Heritage Festival last year, we have now developed the full play for Nelson Heritage Festival in April 2020. We will then tour the play to the Wairau in June, in conjunction with Ngati Toa, with whom we’ve had extensive consultation.

Featuring Jaemes Peter Churchward, Kiri Naik, Cameron West and Nick Kemplen.

Written by Justin Eade, directed by Giles Burton,

Produced by Emily Thompson and Justin Eade

Harp Meditation and Intuitive Development Retreat at Wangapeka

A blissful, nurturing, heart opening and fun three day retreat with live harp music and deepening exercises to strengthen your relationship with your authentic self.
A journey of light, remembering and insight, embracing the parts of us that need us most. The sounds of the harp interwoven with words and intention will take you deeper into yourself, where you can safely explore while being held by the soothing sounds of the harp.

Deep healing results from the merging of Soul and Body and the deeper insights this encourages. Upliftment and heightened frequency resonance occur naturally. Letting go of the old becomes effortless.
During the retreat there will be harp meditations (in a warm room with a fireplace), intuition enhancing exercises (they are playful, fun and encourage your intuition to speak), reflection, creativity, sharing from our heart.
A popular retreat for men and women who want to expand into a deeper awareness of them-selves and improve their perception and connection with the world around them.

Magic happens...

​Accommodation, teacher's fees and superb food is included. All meals are catered for.

Ceroc Dance Nelson

Ceroc® Dance modern jive is a social partner dance generally done to chart toppers and old favourites. It is a partner dance that you can dance at parties, pubs, nightclubs, weddings; just about anywhere!

Ceroc Dance is likened to a fusion of Salsa and Jive but also draws on Latin, Ballroom, Swing and West Coast influences, and does not have complicated footwork.

Start any time, no bookings, experience or partner required. Each class a standalone lesson, so you can come and go as suits you, and not have to worry about catching up on missed classes.

We teach 3-4 moves each night and we link each move and put all the moves together so you can dance the moves over and over again.

Doors open at 7pm to register, and our Beginner Class starts at 7.15. The class will go for an hour, and then it is followed by 20min of music to practice your moves, after which is the Intermediate Class.

Richmond Library: Community Quilt Project

We are so impressed and amazed by the success of our community effort under Level 4 Covid-19 lockdown.

We want to remember this time in a meaningful and lasting way with a community quilt. Simply stitch a word or image relating to your experience of Level 4 lockdown on to a piece of A4 sized fabric, leaving a 3cm border all the way around, and drop it off at your local library. We’ll stitch all the pieces together to make an amazing community quilt which will be exhibited across the Top of The South / Te Tau Ihu.

Any kind of stitching is welcome – embroidery, applique, random wild stitching – just go for gold!

Anyone of any age and any stitching ability can take part.

For more information visit our website: http://www.tasmanlibraries.govt.nz/about-us/events/featured-events/tdl-community-quilt-project/

Keep an eye out for stitching workshops and bees in your local library.

Motueka Library: Community Quilt Project

We are so impressed and amazed by the success of our community effort under Level 4 Covid-19 lockdown.

We want to remember this time in a meaningful and lasting way with a community quilt. Simply stitch a word or image relating to your experience of Level 4 lockdown on to a piece of A4 sized fabric, leaving a 3cm border all the way around, and drop it off at your local library. We’ll stitch all the pieces together to make an amazing community quilt which will be exhibited across the Top of The South / Te Tau Ihu.

Any kind of stitching is welcome – embroidery, applique, random wild stitching – just go for gold!

Anyone of any age and any stitching ability can take part.

Wall to Wall Art - "Resin8" by Barry Driver

An exhibition of 8 exciting new abstract acrylic paintings by Barry Driver.

Barry says, “In the past, I have typically finished my work by framing it behind glass, but these works are an exciting departure from that, instead being mounted and resined on ACM board with backing battens, making it float stylishly away from the wall.

I have called the show RESIN8, because it comprises 8 resined works that I hope with resonate."

Richmond Library: Chris Stuart – For Reasons of Their Own

Chris Stuart has worked in outback Australia with Aboriginal communities, in war zones, during disasters, disease outbreaks and famine and has witnessed the best and worst of humanity. As a result she has a head full of stories that need to be written.

The desire to become a writer began when she was caught in a bombing attack in Northern Sudan. One of her colleagues gave her a book to read while waiting for the all clear. The book was so absorbing and instrumental in distracting her from the danger outside that she realised how wonderful it was to be an author and have the power to transport the reader to another time and place. For Reasons of Their Own is Chris' debut novel.

Find out about the process of writing this intriguing crime novel and the world of DI Robbie Gray in our first author talk since Level 4 lockdown.

After Chris’s session, you are invited to join the Richmond Writing Group for an optional hour of discussion and fun writing exercises from 2.00pm-3.00pm.

Free. All welcome. Bookings not required.

Exhibition Opening - PAINTING ENCOUNTERS AND REVELATIONS - Amanda Watson

Amamda Watson's practice explores the interaction between environments, painting materials and herself as an artist, as she works in and with places. Her paintings register encounters and experiences she has with the land and the studio environment, and presents experience of place in a holistic manner. The paintings have been made by ‘wrapping’ or ‘covering’ surfaces with large pieces of canvas, positioning them over and around masses of rock, parts of trees or organic matter on the ground, or bunched on the studio wall. Then once in position, paint has been applied and removed, water tipped, and the canvas repositioned to let things between the materials, processes, and territories take place, and the discoveries made while working within the constraints of site and process have become part of each work. Each painting has undergone multiple wrapping and painting occasions, so that layers of encounters from different places and times can build-up and interact to provide a multifarious experience of place.

Floortalk - PAINTING ENCOUNTERS AND REVELATIONS - Amanda Watson

We are pleased to announce that Amanda will be giving a floortalk for her exhibition, PAINTING ENCOUNTERS AND REVELATIONS, Saturday 25 July at 11.30am - 12.30pm @ ATELIER Studio|Gallery, it will be a great chance to meet Amanda and to hear her talk about the concepts that have inspired this body of work and she will be sharing some video footage of her painting in environments to show her process. This is going to be a fantastic opportunity to learn more about Amanda's practice and to ask her any burning questions about her work! You are welcome to join us after the Floortalk for coffee and cake.

Amanda's practice melds together time, place, materials, and herself to create holistic paintings that are representational of the various interactions she has had with our natural environment. Amanda takes her canvas's into the land to generate the source material for her works, in a process she calls 'wrapping' or 'covering', this technique produces heavily textured canvases that have both fine detail and large washed out areas. Amanda's massive abstract works are intriguing, powerful, and beautiful.
