Free Haiku Writing Workshop
September 25, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Why haiku? To celebrate the Japanese Garden at Pātaka, overlooked by the Spine. It is in the karesansui style, which represents mountains and water through the use of rocks and gravel, an authentic design created by gardeners from Nishio City, Porirua’s Sister City in Japan. The Nishio gardeners visited in 2013 and 2018, to tend the garden and train Council gardeners in the specialist skills of traditional garden maintenance, to maintain its authenticity.
So, immerse yourself in the beauty of our cherished Japanese garden and let your creativity bloom as you craft haiku poems inspired by Pātaka. This is a unique chance to celebrate nature’s serenity through words and capture the essence of our cultural haven. No experience is required – just an open heart and a love for the art of expression. This is a drop-in event so no booking required.
