Christchurch-based artist and teacher Gaby Montejo will lead a series of kids workshops in response to the two major projects by Tiffany Singh currently exhibiting at CoCA.

Tiffany Singh’s exhibition combines two major works of hers, OM MANI PADME HUM (an expansive installation of colourful ribbon, bells, and the Tibetan Buddhist mantra ‘om mani padme hum’) and The Journey of a Million Miles, a project which involves the collection and sharing of stories of migration to New Zealand.

This workshop, running daily at 11am 10 - 12 July, will involve a printmaking installation responding to Tiffany’s ribbons. Kids will work together to form a large group project where they paint/dye, stitch and install ribbons of fabric temporarily in the gallery in response to Tiffany Singh's work.

Workshops run 11am - 12.30pm, suitable for kids 5 - 13, $10 entry, booking essential at coca.org.nz/events.

Caregivers welcome for free, and essential for kids under 8.
