Fire & Music - Waiohiki Creative Arts Village
Waiohiki Creative Arts Village is a thriving hub of artists and craftspeople, near the spectacular historic Ōtātara Pā site. Gather friends and family and pop out to visit the village when studio doors are open for a night of art and alchemy, craft, culture, music and fire, food and drink.
See great exhibitions, browse quality handmade goods and listen to live music and a drum jam. Be enthralled by the specially created fire sculpture referencing Mahuika the Maori goddess of fire. Try your skill at stone carving and unearth your new talent when you create a small object. And don’t miss The Arts Village shop staging some interactive activities.
Meet the artists and discover the works of Susan Mabin, John Nelson, Kezia Whakamoe, Helen Dynes, master carver Hugh Tareha, ceramic artists John Gisborne and Morag Shaw, painter Joshua Weekes, Terri Dangen, sculptor Chris Elliot and the Taradale Pottery Group. The village welcomes visitors any day of the Festival. For further details visit the waiohiki creative arts village website.
