We’ve been to several exciting events.
Uku Tatai Whetu (“Earthbound to the Stars”), at the Nathan Homestead- Manurewa Community Arts Centre, included many stunning works. We especially liked these: in clay by Noelle Jakeman, recycled materials by Bethany Edwards, and muka by Tuaine Strickland.
On the last day of Floral Art at Fresh Gallery, in Otara, we were given paper flowers made by children in the school holiday programme. Here Nicole Lim, gallery director, has just shown Vala and David Lautofa how to make hibiscus blooms.
And in the Otara town centre, students have suspended stars made from recycled plastic bottles which light up at night from stored solar power..
