Motueka Library: Matariki Take & Make Stars

Monday 21st June-Saturday 10th July 2021

We are celebrating Matariki which is the name of the Pleiades star cluster rising in late June or early July. This signifies the beginning of the Māori New Year.

Choose your Matariki Take & Make kit and create your own Matariki stars from paper.

Choose from paper designs depicting paua shell colours, pounamu/green stone, silver ferns, the ocean and weaving.

Hang your decorative stars on a pot plant or anywhere in your home.

For adults while stocks last.
