Motueka and the Tasman area give heart to Christchurch

Central Library Peterborough is hosting a Paper Mache Hearts Exhibition. The hearts were made by the people of Motueka and the Tasman Region for the people of Christchurch on the anniversary of the 22 February 2011 earthquake. The project was the brain child of Julie Clausen, a Christchurch sculptor and artist who moved to Motueka after the earthquake.  Since moving, Julie hadn’t been back to her art – so this project was to help her get back on track and to offer a gift to the people of Christchurch.

Motueka Public Library hosted workshops to make the heart over two consecutive Wednesdays, and included adults and children.
