Free bus for art centre’s open day
The organisation behind the annual Festival of Cultures Lantern Parade is hosting an open day on Thursday.
The Rangiwahia Environmental Arts Centre Trust (REACT) is dedicated to creating and sharing art made with sustainable materials designed to minimise waste.
REACT’s Jim Richards said he and Bridgette Murphy travelled around the country to festivals and schools demonstrating their willow wand framing techniques.
Visitors to the open day will have the chance to take part in an environmental project by helping plant native trees and shrubs in nearby paddocks.
As the REACT workshop is located near the 53-hectare Rangiwahia Bush Reserve, Richards said a bushwalk would be incorporated into the excursion.
A free bus will be provided to Thursday’s open day, departing Palmerston North at 9.30am, returning at 4.30pm.
The bus will also stop off to pick up people in Feilding on request.
