Welcome to Corban Estate Arts Centre 
in 2014!

We are looking forward to this year and what it will bring.  
We re-opened on 6 January 2014, and get straight into our Summer School on 13 January.  There are diverse courses on offer spanning printmaking to silver jewellery, singing with freedom to children's book illustration.  

New to Summer School is the film-making course.  During 2013 we trialled the end to end film-making course with Bryan Hudkins, Mike Lough and their team, Dreams in Shadow.  In just two days participants completed short films and directly uploaded them to You Tube.
On Saturday 29 March we have our Open Arts Day, replacing the Open Studio Weekend held annually till now.  

Open Arts Day will be non-stop from 10am till 10pm, with several exhibitions to see, artists to converse with, art workshops to try, and performances and films to indulge in.  This year we are making special provision for the Deaf community to participate, providing NZ sign language where we can.  

While Open Arts Day is primarily for adults, further into the year, we have our Kids Arts Festival on 17 May, where children cut loose creating and performing; and starting late June we will hold several Matariki Festival events.  

Meanwhile with summer here, enjoy it and hang out with a nice coffee under the umbrellas at the Coffee Studio café. It’s a great spot for that lunch meeting or for just getting together with friends.
