craft corner: matariki mobile

Matariki is a special time of year. Matariki is a star cluster that appears in our skies in the winter month of Pipiri (June-July) and marks the first month of the Māori lunar calendar. It is a time of new beginnings, reflection, gathering together and celebration.

This month to celebrate Matariki we are making Matariki mobiles that are made up of the 9 stars of Matariki. While creating you mobile you will learn about the stars and what they represent.

All materials supplied, so you just need to pop-in. Activities suitable for 3 years+, parent supervision required.

Craft Corner is a do-it-yourself station inside Huia Lodge that you can stop in throughout the day. There are no instructors leading the crafts, it is self-lead.
