Quirky Creative – SCANZ 2015 Water and Peace Programme

Mon 26 Jan 1-4pm
Vessels: Mosaic baths for birds or bees, or mosaic glass water bottles
Kids will be making shallow mosaic dishes for birds, or for bees (bees need water too! And they adore blue things). Adults and older kids have the choice of starting a more intricate stained glass mosaic on a glass water bottle suitable for the dining table.

Tue 27 Jan 10am-1pm
Psychedelic Hippy Day: Tie-dye shirts with a peace message
Hippy philosophy is about more than the rainbow tie dye, but it is an eye-catching way to say something important. Make a shirt to wear at Saturday’s public gathering! BYO white cotton t-shirt. We will have fabric panels available if you can’t bring a t-shirt.

Wed 28 Jan 1-4pm
Raindrop Art: Glistening drops to display later at Huatoki Plaza
We’ll use several different art forms, including Zentangle, to create raindrops – take some home, donate some for Saturday’s display.

Fri 30 Jan 10am-1pm
Art Abandonment
: Tiny projects made to be abandoned and found
Stencilled rocks, bottlecap collages, woolly octopus, and some other surprises – abandoned art is made to be left somewhere around town, with a tag for the finder to let us know what they found and where.

Sat 31 Jan 11am-4pm
