I am participating in this exhibition. That starts off at the Franklin Arts Centre in Pukekohe and then travels to Christchurch. I hope that if you get a chance you pop in and have a look. I am looking forward to meeting and working with Artists both local and from further afield.

I now run After School Art Classes each term from my Gallery + Studio here at 331 North Road Clevedon.

I also teach 7-8 year old classes on Tuesday 3.30-4.30pm and 4.30-5.30pm.

Funded and supported by the Franklin Local Board, this community art project runs over six weeks in Katie’s Gallery + Studio, utilising her newly restored mangle press. Focused on prints in the Vanitas style (a type of still life art that examines mortality and uses symbolism to represent peoples lives) participants will be taught how to develop ideas, learn the technical process of reduction woodblock printing and create their own original prints.
The community are invited to view the artwork at a special exhibition/event at the end of the course. The art will be for sale, with all profits from participants works going to Clevedon Plunket, who are generously supporting this community project in several ways, including looking after participants’ young children during the course so they can focus on art making.
Katie will also be releasing her new print series “Status Symbols” at the exhibition, with a percentage of sales also earmarked to go to Plunket from this event.
“As a mum myself, I know that sometimes being at home with your kids can be isolating and it’s great to have a passion to work on that’s just for you. I have loved sharing my space and experience for this creative workshop series. My goal is to make the project ongoing so that more local parents can meet each other and learn something different.”
