Designed to be fun

For the Museum’s April school holiday programme our Events and Educator Officer, Rob Groat, ran two Māori designs workshops. The classes encouraged participants to take a close look at the Museum carvings and Tukutuku panels and create their own designs. The designs were transferred and painted onto wooden panels.  Twelve people attended the two workshops, four adults and eight children. Having smaller groups allowed for more time and creativity to be put into the painting of the designs; the second workshop lasted all day due to the enthusiasm of the group.
