Motueka Library: 1000 Books Before School (Thursday 25th October 2018-Tuesday 31st December 2019)

Reading aloud and talking to your kids are two of the best things you can do.

1000 Books Before School encourages families to spend quality time together, promotes pre-literacy and learning by having listened to 1000 or more books before the child starts school. Any child aged from birth to starting school can participate in this self-paced programme.

1000 Books Before School is a programme designed to encourage and support families to read aloud to their children from birth with the knowledge that reading aloud to children is a vital ingredient in building a child's foundation for successful learning.

1000 Books Before School is a collaboration between Tasman District Libraries and the Motueka Family Service Centre and is supported by the Motueka community.

Richmond Library: Good Crafternoon! (Wednesday 31st October 2018-Wednesday 18th December 2019)

Join us at Richmond Library for an hour and a half of crafting. It’s a great opportunity to finish a project, or start a new one, and spend some enjoyable time with other crafters.

Bring along your craft project – knitting, hand sewing, mending, crochet, drawing, scrap-booking, or whatever half-finished, almost-started project you like – and work on it with other crafters at the library.

Free, but you need to bring all your own materials and craft supplies.

Every Wednesday afternoon.

Bring your lunch, or grab something from the Library Café.

All welcome. Bookings not required.

FERGUS AITKEN Comedy at The Wholemeal (Friday 7th June 2019)

Wellington favourite Fergus Aitken returns with a show that will leave you in stitches.

Fergus plays regularly at comedy clubs and events in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and beyond.

In recent years Fergus has had Takaka crowds roaring - and he is looking forward to returning for more!

A selection of adventures, fun facts and myths. With a stand-up comedy style based strongly in physical theatre and storytelling, he spins a yarn – and some of it’s even true. Fergus has had many bizarre encounters with the truth… including several standing ovations at a nudist festival. This year’s show features new material about the challenges of getting along with young people and old people.

What about those freedom campers?

Come out and tickle your funny bone with an evening of hilarity, featuring Fergus Aitken!

“Manic physicality… knicker wettingly funny… Fergus Aitken is right up there with the BEST”
Theatreview

Improvised Movement Workshop (Saturday 8th June 2019)

Come along for a day of improvised movement!

Anne Bogart's Viewpoints are a comprehensive structure for understanding the way our bodies interact with time and space. The Viewpoints we look through in this system are Spatial Relationships, Kinaesthetic Response, Tempo, Duration, Architecture, Floor Pattern, Shape, Gesture and Repetition.

Using movement exercises, we will investigate The Viewpoints as an ensemble. This work often gives us a shared vocabulary for talking about and creating theatre and dance. It is a practical way of experiencing the different ways our bodies can relate to space and time. It is a powerful tool for connecting as an ensemble. It is a way to heighten the impact of the choices you make when creating work.

This workshop is recommended for people who are involved with theatre and dance, whether as a student, creator or teacher. This promises to be an uplifting day of movement and connection!

Book your place by emailing Lisa Allan (your tutor) on wintergreencreative@gmail.com.
