Squiggla Making Space at Te Uru 9 March -12 May 2024

In the world of Squiggla, you will experience mark making in action. You are invited to exercise and embrace your creative thinking with whānau and friends. Experiment with marks, dots and lines to play, make, imagine and invent – explore your curiosity and unleash new ideas!

Squiggla is a hands-on mark making activity for young and old alike. Visitors will get the chance to create their own Squigglaworks, and learn a new technique for unleashing their imaginations. Squiggla celebrates the joy of mark making in all its forms. By discovering the possibilities of mark making and leaving behind the pressure to make art or to represent something you see in the world, you uncover fresh ways of looking, feeling, sensing, thinking and observing.
