Come join us to witness an exciting collaboration between a group of talented NZ artists who have created their works on a unique canvas – macrocarpa skateboards.

These skateboard wall hangings are extra special. Manufactured by Paper Rain in Mount Maunganui using macrocarpa timber sourced from a small planting in Marlborough. We cut, sand and engrave these for the artists who take them and create their magic. The end result is a unique, one-off piece of artwork.
