DEPOT - Proof of Concept
Saturday, 4 November - Wednesday, 20 December
10:00 - 16:00

Opening event: Saturday 4 November, 2-4pm

Proof of Concept is an exhibition that marks the halfway point in a two year journey for the 11 makers taking part in HANDSHAKE 8; a professional development programme for contemporary jewellers.

HANDSHAKE sets the stage for exploration without parameters. The work showcases a diverse group, united by material play and conceptual insights. The pieces presented as ‘proof of concept’ are an invitation to see ideas, processes, materials and makers very much still in development, and to help shape their future form.

DEPOT - Final Resting Place
Saturday, 2 December - Wednesday, 20 December
10:00 - 16:00

Opening event: Saturday 2 December, 2-4pm

In our final exhibition of 2023, Yeonjae Choi’s sculptural figures invite you to peer into their illuminated openings, revealing hidden realms nestled inside. Inspired by the cycles of birth, daughterhood and home, Choi explores the interplay of exterior forms and interior space, transforming each sculpture into a prismatic experience. Echoing life’s intricate rhythms, these works reflect a form of femininity that is closely tied to maternal life. As vessels of tangible and unseen stories, they embody the intimate exploration of these interconnected themes.

Tuesday, 5 December - Tuesday, 5 December
19: - 21:30

December is the last Club Night for the year and to celebrate, we're inviting the best of our members to perform for us.  Playing either the Club's Yamaha Clavinova CVP809 digital piano or their own keyboards, I'm sure it will be a fun night.  As a bonus, we're holding our annual Christmas Hamper raffle with multiple prize draws along with a special Christmas themed supper.   It should be a great night.

Held upstairs at the Takapuna Bowling Club, Bracken Avenue, Takapuna, there is a $8.00 (cash only) door charge.  Club starts at 7:00 and will finish at 9:30.

Disney’s High School Musical  is based on the hugely popular 2006 Disney Channel Original Movie High School Musical. The story centres on the blossoming relationship between Troy, a high school jock, and Gabriella, the new smart girl at school. They meet on a family vacation and become attracted to each other while singing in a karaoke competition. Rediscovering each other at school, their relationship and their surprise decision to audition together for the school show are thwarted by the school’s current leading lady, Sharpay, and Troy and Gabriella’s well-meaning friends. Finally, Gabriella and Troy find a way to be themselves and are rewarded with the lead roles in the school show. Full of catchy songs and exciting dance routines, Disney’s High School Musical explores contemporary issues of friendship, first love, and acceptance.
