WELCOME TO THE
Waitangi Day Workshops 2021
Waitangi Day 2021 6th and 8th February was filled with creative activities held at the Museum. Toi Oriwa offered visitors the opportunity to learn te reo Māori and cultural activities through creative workshops. Tī rākau and Māori designed badges were a great hit as visitors learned the intricacies of designing, singing, and learning more about the significance of Waitangi.
Make Do & Mend Workshops
‘Make Do & Mend’ workshops have been very successful with lots of creative new fashion accessories being created by utilising the mantra of recycle, rethink, repurpose and reuse. Connie Takarangi is a first time presenter of workshops here at the Museum and hopefully she will be back.
Just in time for Christmas!
We have a little SALE on at the Museum shop!
Come in and check out the Museum merchandise, Te Ara Wai Journeys merchandise, Tui & Tama merchandise for the kids, books and a whole lot more!
Our calender is open, and we are taking bookings for 2021 LEOTC.
We have a range of core social science programmes that are all designed to be student led. Want to add technology, or maybe art, or science? Have a specific local focus? Just ask. Our Te Tiriti O Waitangi session is a great way to start the year with a hands on interactive look at this vital subject. From dress ups, handling objects and taonga, our giant roll out Treaty, to signing their own class treaty with the ink dip pens.
Waipā is home to significant sites of the New Zealand Wars. Our “Ngā Pakanga O Aotearoa” program starts with a session at the Museum, and then the important kōrero continues at the sites. We have created a “causes and consequences” zoom session feturing interviews with local experts, to give three fifferent lenses. This can be added to the program, and is ideal as a post Tour session, in class. Weaving local stories, engaging, inspiring, with hands on learning experiences. If you are a Teacher, we’d love the opportunity to chat about what we can offer your students.
And yes, we are taking bookings now, book via the education tab, where you will also find our core programmes, or email us direct email@example.com
