In New Artland, TVNZ 7’s crazily ambitious art series, thirteen leading artists have been handpicked to create incredible new works of art with the help of Kiwi communities.
Presenter Chris Knox follows the action and the results are surprising, inspiring and epic. Filmed from West Auckland to Central Otago, this new series of New Artland involves the artworks of farmers, flying squads, orchestras, graffiti artists, schoolkids, tattooists, knitters, BMX riders, snowballs and Westies.
In this episode of New Artland, expert knitting and crochet artist Jacquelyn Greenbank has designs on Christchurch’s Cathedral Square. For the centre of the ‘Garden City’ she’s unimpressed that it is a grey, uninviting space. This could all change, if she can find enough knitters to help her transform the square into a woolly woodland scene.
