The Tribune (NZ) - - NEWS - GINA CARLINE

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.
