The Month of Thunder
Throughout July, the Backspace Gallery hosts an exhibition celebrating the creativity of Thunderpants, NZ's own organic ultra comfy undies.
Thunderpants has just turned 20, so join us for a look back through the history of this company that started as a design school project in 1995.
The first styles were block prints: now the fabric is printed to their designs in Auckland, or screen printed on their 6m long table at Martinborough HQ. In this exhibition you'll see the evolution of some of the classic designs, and you may find some of your own creativity: if you're one of the many loyal Thundies fans who have sent in drawings, photos, poems and more over the years, there'll be a special fan club section to celebrate your contributions.
And... as part of this Month of Thunder, you will also have the opportunity to *block print your own pants* at Backspace from 11am -3pm, Wednesday to Saturday during the exhibition: see our separate Eventfinder listing for more details.
