Open Christchurch Kids Workshop: Cardboard City Building

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Let's build a city!

Let’s see what kind of cardboard city we can make together. Come and make a house or building using only cardboard, glue and a black pen! You can stack them on top of each other or join them to a friend's creations and start to make a city!

This workshop is inspired by the artwork of artists Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan who use their work to think about the challenges of moving to a new home or to an unfamiliar country. 


Saturday 16 May, 1:30–4pm

Gold coin donation on arrival

(Suitable for 8-12-year-olds. Session limited to 20 people)
