Fun in French with Shelley – All levels

All levels offered from Beginners to Advanced.

* Beginner French

Course Description: This class will arm you with the basics for surviving in a French speaking country – greetings, shopping, eating out, meeting people etc. – in a fun, friendly interactive way.  Speaking even a modest amount of French will have a tremendous pay-off in terms of enjoyment and interaction with the locals.

* Next Step after Beginners – Confidence Builder

Course outline: Class for those who have completed the 10 week beginner course and wish to build up confidence and extend their skills. This is also a good class for False Beginners – those who have done some French but a while ago and want to get back into the swing of things again. Emphasis on communication skills.

* Intermediate French – Use it, don’t lose it !

Course Description: If you have some beginner French, don’t want to lose it but also want to enjoy SPEAKING French rather than just reading it then this is the class  for you. This course is adapted to suit the level of participating students. Lots of interaction covering useful social situations. Learning and fun combined.

* Advanced Conversational French – On parle de tout, on s’amuse, tout en français

Course Description: Learning and fun combined. This 8-10 week class operates on an on-going basis and is designed for students who wish to improve, regain or maintain their fluency. The class is conducted entirely in French.

Life Drawing Sessions

Come along to our Life Drawing bi monthly Life Drawing Session
Life Drawing Session Friday (first and third Friday of the month)

Where: 171a Elizabeth Street West, Tauranga
Koha: $10.00 for Society Members, $15.00 for Guests

Life Drawing, Figure Drawing… the act of drawing a living person.
It’s one of the most challenging and interesting ways to develop your drawing skills. Skills that translate to all aspects of art making.
It’s also a great way to escape into your own world for a little while.
This is an untutored session, however, we won’t leave you completely alone if you are new to it and need a little help getting started. It is a very friendly, mixed level, session and you will be surprised what you can learn and achieve with a little encouragement.
If you are an experienced artist or student a Life Model will give you unlimited inspiration and a chance to experiment with your technique, materials and style. And we all appreciate and are inspired by new approaches.
We always take time for a feedback session before we leave. This is a positive and invaluable part of the session. It is inspiring looking at what worked during the session and why; sometimes the less obvious “works” provide the most interesting insights. There is always something to learn.
Bring your own drawing/painting gear (any media is fine), there is usually sugar paper available for sale at the Art Room. We do have some easels at the rooms, but they are limited. If you have your own please feel free to bring it along.
Please turn up in time to assist with set up, and stay on to assist with pack down. We are a self supporting group and if everyone helps it is very quick and easy.

PS:  If you are interested in modelling and are available please feel free to PM me. We love experienced Models, but are happy to use a sprinkling of “new” models… so don’t be reluctant if you haven’t done it before.

Tinkd Makerspace : Repair Café

The perfect opportunity to have broken belongings assessed or repaired is right around the corner.

Tauranga hoarders, tinkerers and holders of broken gadgets can rejoice, as Tauranga’s Repair Café pop up  opens up on the last Saturday of each month at 148 Durham Street, Tauranga. Get your objects fixed for free! Volunteers try to repair items destined for landfill. Get your objects fixed for free!

Repair Cafés are described as “free pop-up events” where local people can bring in their “broken or damaged belongings” to local volunteers, who do their best to repair or assess them.

Tauranga is joining the global movement with its own Repair Café with a volunteer driven initiative as part of Tinkd Makerspace.

According to a spokesperson, Repair Cafés aim to reduce waste and overconsumption.

They also encourage and foster the “do it yourself” spirit and strengthen social connections by bringing different members of the community together.

“The purpose of these events is two-fold: to try to change our “throwaway culture” and to bring people in the community together. An added bonus is that it saves people money,” says founder of Tinkd Makerspace, Steven Vincent.

“If their item can be repaired they don’t need to replace it, pay for more expensive repairs elsewhere, or send it to the landfill. If the item can’t be repaired, then at least we’ve tried!

For more information and tickets to the next Repair Café event, visit the Tinkd website.

When: Last Saturday of the month
Time: 9.30am – 11.30am
Where: Tinkd Makerspace, 148 Durham St Tauranga

The organisers are looking for more volunteer repairers with different skill sets to add to the events. It’s free to attend with an item but pre-booking an item is preferred as it allows the organisers to prepare for any repairs.

Tinkd Makerspace : Repair Café

The perfect opportunity to have broken belongings assessed or repaired is right around the corner.

Tauranga hoarders, tinkerers and holders of broken gadgets can rejoice, as Tauranga’s Repair Café pop up  opens up on the last Saturday of each month at 148 Durham Street, Tauranga. Get your objects fixed for free! Volunteers try to repair items destined for landfill. Get your objects fixed for free!

Repair Cafés are described as “free pop-up events” where local people can bring in their “broken or damaged belongings” to local volunteers, who do their best to repair or assess them.

Tauranga is joining the global movement with its own Repair Café with a volunteer driven initiative as part of Tinkd Makerspace.

According to a spokesperson, Repair Cafés aim to reduce waste and overconsumption.

They also encourage and foster the “do it yourself” spirit and strengthen social connections by bringing different members of the community together.

“The purpose of these events is two-fold: to try to change our “throwaway culture” and to bring people in the community together. An added bonus is that it saves people money,” says founder of Tinkd Makerspace, Steven Vincent.

“If their item can be repaired they don’t need to replace it, pay for more expensive repairs elsewhere, or send it to the landfill. If the item can’t be repaired, then at least we’ve tried!

For more information and tickets to the next Repair Café event, visit the Tinkd website.

When: Last Saturday of the month
Time: 9.30am – 11.30am
Where: Tinkd Makerspace, 148 Durham St Tauranga

The organisers are looking for more volunteer repairers with different skill sets to add to the events. It’s free to attend with an item but pre-booking an item is preferred as it allows the organisers to prepare for any repairs.

Fun in French with Shelley – All levels

All levels offered from Beginners to Advanced.

* Beginner French

Course Description: This class will arm you with the basics for surviving in a French speaking country – greetings, shopping, eating out, meeting people etc. – in a fun, friendly interactive way.  Speaking even a modest amount of French will have a tremendous pay-off in terms of enjoyment and interaction with the locals.

* Next Step after Beginners – Confidence Builder

Course outline: Class for those who have completed the 10 week beginner course and wish to build up confidence and extend their skills. This is also a good class for False Beginners – those who have done some French but a while ago and want to get back into the swing of things again. Emphasis on communication skills.

* Intermediate French – Use it, don’t lose it !

Course Description: If you have some beginner French, don’t want to lose it but also want to enjoy SPEAKING French rather than just reading it then this is the class  for you. This course is adapted to suit the level of participating students. Lots of interaction covering useful social situations. Learning and fun combined.

* Advanced Conversational French – On parle de tout, on s’amuse, tout en français

Course Description: Learning and fun combined. This 8-10 week class operates on an on-going basis and is designed for students who wish to improve, regain or maintain their fluency. The class is conducted entirely in French.

Life Drawing Sessions

Come along to our Life Drawing bi monthly Life Drawing Session
Life Drawing Session Friday (first and third Friday of the month)

Where: 171a Elizabeth Street West, Tauranga
Koha: $10.00 for Society Members, $15.00 for Guests

Life Drawing, Figure Drawing… the act of drawing a living person.
It’s one of the most challenging and interesting ways to develop your drawing skills. Skills that translate to all aspects of art making.
It’s also a great way to escape into your own world for a little while.
This is an untutored session, however, we won’t leave you completely alone if you are new to it and need a little help getting started. It is a very friendly, mixed level, session and you will be surprised what you can learn and achieve with a little encouragement.
If you are an experienced artist or student a Life Model will give you unlimited inspiration and a chance to experiment with your technique, materials and style. And we all appreciate and are inspired by new approaches.
We always take time for a feedback session before we leave. This is a positive and invaluable part of the session. It is inspiring looking at what worked during the session and why; sometimes the less obvious “works” provide the most interesting insights. There is always something to learn.
Bring your own drawing/painting gear (any media is fine), there is usually sugar paper available for sale at the Art Room. We do have some easels at the rooms, but they are limited. If you have your own please feel free to bring it along.
Please turn up in time to assist with set up, and stay on to assist with pack down. We are a self supporting group and if everyone helps it is very quick and easy.

PS:  If you are interested in modelling and are available please feel free to PM me. We love experienced Models, but are happy to use a sprinkling of “new” models… so don’t be reluctant if you haven’t done it before.

If you are an experienced artist or student a Life Model will give you unlimited inspiration and a chance to experiment with your technique, materials and style. And we all appreciate and are inspired by new approaches.
We always take time for a feedback session before we leave. This is a positive and invaluable part of the session. It is inspiring looking at what worked during the session and why; sometimes the less obvious “works” provide the most interesting insights. There is always something to learn.
Bring your own drawing/painting gear (any media is fine), there is usually sugar paper available for sale at the Art Room. We do have some easels at the rooms, but they are limited. If you have your own please feel free to bring it along.
Please turn up in time to assist with set up, and stay on to assist with pack down. We are a self supporting group and if everyone helps it is very quick and easy.

PS:  If you are interested in modelling and are available please feel free to PM me. We love experienced Models, but are happy to use a sprinkling of “new” models… so don’t be reluctant if you haven’t done it before.

All levels offered from Beginners to Advanced.

* Beginner French

Course Description: This class will arm you with the basics for surviving in a French speaking country – greetings, shopping, eating out, meeting people etc. – in a fun, friendly interactive way.  Speaking even a modest amount of French will have a tremendous pay-off in terms of enjoyment and interaction with the locals.

* Intermediate French – Use it, don’t lose it !

Course Description: If you have some beginner French, don’t want to lose it but also want to enjoy SPEAKING French rather than just reading it then this is the class  for you. This course is adapted to suit the level of participating students. Lots of interaction covering useful social situations. Learning and fun combined.

* Advanced Conversational French – On parle de tout, on s’amuse, tout en français

Course Description: Learning and fun combined. This 8-10 week class operates on an on-going basis and is designed for students who wish to improve, regain or maintain their fluency. The class is conducted entirely in French.

Tinkd Makerspace : Repair Café

The perfect opportunity to have broken belongings assessed or repaired is right around the corner.

Tauranga hoarders, tinkerers and holders of broken gadgets can rejoice, as Tauranga’s Repair Café pop up  opens up on the last Saturday of each month at 148 Durham Street, Tauranga. Get your objects fixed for free! Volunteers try to repair items destined for landfill. Get your objects fixed for free!

Repair Cafés are described as “free pop-up events” where local people can bring in their “broken or damaged belongings” to local volunteers, who do their best to repair or assess them.

Tauranga is joining the global movement with its own Repair Café with a volunteer driven initiative as part of Tinkd Makerspace.

According to a spokesperson, Repair Cafés aim to reduce waste and overconsumption.

They also encourage and foster the “do it yourself” spirit and strengthen social connections by bringing different members of the community together.

“The purpose of these events is two-fold: to try to change our “throwaway culture” and to bring people in the community together. An added bonus is that it saves people money,” says founder of Tinkd Makerspace, Steven Vincent.

“If their item can be repaired they don’t need to replace it, pay for more expensive repairs elsewhere, or send it to the landfill. If the item can’t be repaired, then at least we’ve tried!

For more information and tickets to the next Repair Café event, visit the Tinkd website.

When: Last Saturday of the month
Time: 9.30am – 11.30am
Where: Tinkd Makerspace, 148 Durham St Tauranga

The organisers are looking for more volunteer repairers with different skill sets to add to the events. It’s free to attend with an item but pre-booking an item is preferred as it allows the organisers to prepare for any repairs.

Life Drawing Session Friday (first and third Friday of the month)

Where: 171a Elizabeth Street West, Tauranga
Koha: $10.00 for Society Members, $15.00 for Guests

Life Drawing, Figure Drawing… the act of drawing a living person.
It’s one of the most challenging and interesting ways to develop your drawing skills. Skills that translate to all aspects of art making.
It’s also a great way to escape into your own world for a little while.
This is an untutored session, however, we won’t leave you completely alone if you are new to it and need a little help getting started. It is a very friendly, mixed level, session and you will be surprised what you can learn and achieve with a little encouragement.
If you are an experienced artist or student a Life Model will give you unlimited inspiration and a chance to experiment with your technique, materials and style. And we all appreciate and are inspired by new approaches.
We always take time for a feedback session before we leave. This is a positive and invaluable part of the session. It is inspiring looking at what worked during the session and why; sometimes the less obvious “works” provide the most interesting insights. There is always something to learn.
Bring your own drawing/painting gear (any media is fine), there is usually sugar paper available for sale at the Art Room. We do have some easels at the rooms, but they are limited. If you have your own please feel free to bring it along.
Please turn up in time to assist with set up, and stay on to assist with pack down. We are a self supporting group and if everyone helps it is very quick and easy.

PS:  If you are interested in modelling and are available please feel free to PM me. We love experienced Models, but are happy to use a sprinkling of “new” models… so don’t be reluctant if you haven’t done it before.

* Beginner French

Course Description: This class will arm you with the basics for surviving in a French speaking country – greetings, shopping, eating out, meeting people etc. – in a fun, friendly interactive way.  Speaking even a modest amount of French will have a tremendous pay-off in terms of enjoyment and interaction with the locals.

* Intermediate French – Use it, don’t lose it !

Course Description: If you have some beginner French, don’t want to lose it but also want to enjoy SPEAKING French rather than just reading it then this is the class  for you. This course is adapted to suit the level of participating students. Lots of interaction covering useful social situations. Learning and fun combined.

Life Drawing Sessions

Come along to our Life Drawing bi monthly Life Drawing Session
Life Drawing Session Friday (first and third Friday of the month)

Where: 171a Elizabeth Street West, Tauranga
Koha: $10.00 for Society Members, $15.00 for Guests

Life Drawing, Figure Drawing… the act of drawing a living person.
It’s one of the most challenging and interesting ways to develop your drawing skills. Skills that translate to all aspects of art making.
It’s also a great way to escape into your own world for a little while.
This is an untutored session, however, we won’t leave you completely alone if you are new to it and need a little help getting started. It is a very friendly, mixed level, session and you will be surprised what you can learn and achieve with a little encouragement.
If you are an experienced artist or student a Life Model will give you unlimited inspiration and a chance to experiment with your technique, materials and style. And we all appreciate and are inspired by new approaches.
We always take time for a feedback session before we leave. This is a positive and invaluable part of the session. It is inspiring looking at what worked during the session and why; sometimes the less obvious “works” provide the most interesting insights. There is always something to learn.
Bring your own drawing/painting gear (any media is fine), there is usually sugar paper available for sale at the Art Room. We do have some easels at the rooms, but they are limited. If you have your own please feel free to bring it along.
Please turn up in time to assist with set up, and stay on to assist with pack down. We are a self supporting group and if everyone helps it is very quick and easy.

PS:  If you are interested in modelling and are available please feel free to PM me. We love experienced Models, but are happy to use a sprinkling of “new” models… so don’t be reluctant if you haven’t done it before.

Tinkd Makerspace : Repair Café

The perfect opportunity to have broken belongings assessed or repaired is right around the corner.

Tauranga hoarders, tinkerers and holders of broken gadgets can rejoice, as Tauranga’s Repair Café pop up  opens up on the last Saturday of each month at 148 Durham Street, Tauranga. Get your objects fixed for free! Volunteers try to repair items destined for landfill. Get your objects fixed for free!

Repair Cafés are described as “free pop-up events” where local people can bring in their “broken or damaged belongings” to local volunteers, who do their best to repair or assess them.

Tauranga is joining the global movement with its own Repair Café with a volunteer driven initiative as part of Tinkd Makerspace.

According to a spokesperson, Repair Cafés aim to reduce waste and overconsumption.

They also encourage and foster the “do it yourself” spirit and strengthen social connections by bringing different members of the community together.

“The purpose of these events is two-fold: to try to change our “throwaway culture” and to bring people in the community together. An added bonus is that it saves people money,” says founder of Tinkd Makerspace, Steven Vincent.

“If their item can be repaired they don’t need to replace it, pay for more expensive repairs elsewhere, or send it to the landfill. If the item can’t be repaired, then at least we’ve tried!

For more information and tickets to the next Repair Café event, visit the Tinkd website.

When: Last Saturday of the month
Time: 9.30am – 11.30am
Where: Tinkd Makerspace, 148 Durham St Tauranga

The organisers are looking for more volunteer repairers with different skill sets to add to the events. It’s free to attend with an item but pre-booking an item is preferred as it allows the organisers to prepare for any repairs.

All levels offered from Beginners to Advanced.

* Beginner French

Course Description: This class will arm you with the basics for surviving in a French speaking country – greetings, shopping, eating out, meeting people etc. – in a fun, friendly interactive way.  Speaking even a modest amount of French will have a tremendous pay-off in terms of enjoyment and interaction with the locals.

* Next Step after Beginners – Confidence Builder

Course outline: Class for those who have completed the 10 week beginner course and wish to build up confidence and extend their skills. This is also a good class for False Beginners – those who have done some French but a while ago and want to get back into the swing of things again. Emphasis on communication skills.

* Intermediate French – Use it, don’t lose it !

Course Description: If you have some beginner French, don’t want to lose it but also want to enjoy SPEAKING French rather than just reading it then this is the class  for you.
