Regency Fashion and Street Skills (Tauranga)

Being Frockers we are naturally drawn to anything related to frocks…
If it includes fashion expertise and high tea we definately want to know!

Saturday April 21 – Regency Fashions A La Mode at Tauranga Art Gallery
12pm – Meet Rosie on the waterfront opposite Wharf street for a ride to Sulphur Point over to Chapel street and back again.
1pm – Arrive at Tga Art Gallery to see deliciously feminine fashion. 45 hand coloured plates from 1809-1828.
2pm – Angela Lassig, Fashion Historian from Auckland, will give an illustrated talk on Rudolph Ackermann and his popular periodical, the Repository of Arts, Literature, Comerce, Manufactures, Fashion and Politics (from which the prints in A La Mode originate). This will be followed by a high tea provided by Friends of the Gallery. BYO fine china cup if you wish!
There is a $10 event fee which must be paid in advance.

Frocks on Bikes has 10 seats reserved for the floor talk and high tea. Send us your name by email so we can put you on the list! Deadline Monday April 16th. This event is SOLD OUT ladies, which makes these seats hot, hot, hot! You must pay for your seat at the gallery before the floor talk. OK to pay on the day by noon. Tell the gallery you are with Frocks on Bikes. They will have a list of Frocker’s names at the front desk.

If it rains we will cancel the ride. Frockers can go directly to the gallery at 1pm to see the A La Mode exhibit and attend the floor talk and high tea.

Being Frockers we like to be noticed when riding our bicycles around town…
Become a Street Savvy Woman and show other road users how smart and confident you are while cycling!

Saturday April 28th – Street Skills Clinic with Iris Thomas and Vanessa Quin
9am – 11am – Sharpen your street skills! Learn about road rules and bike safety from two very street savvy cyclists. Meet outside the Courthouse on Cameron Road to review road rules and cyclist’s rights and repsonsibilities followed by a group ride to put into practice what we learn. Q&A session afterwards with prizes. Free clinic.
Please let us know if you wish to attend. If there is something you want to try on Cameron Road let us know that too! 

Lunch and coffee at a local cafe following the clinic. Why? Because you must reward yourself for being so GOOD!
