Join our fabulous educators for FREE themed drop-in craft sessions on Wednesday and Saturdays during the school holidays. We will be making a working compass that you can decorate and use. Test it out through the streets of Masterton, what can you find? We will also be creating beautiful seascape collages for you take home. All ages welcome.


The Hide and Go Seek Aratoi Rocks

Pick up a blank rock from Aratoi, decorate it and then hide it somewhere in the region. If someone finds it, you can re-hide it and send a photo to #aratoirocks. How far can these travelling rocks end up?

A participation activity for everyone. Write or draw your favourite journey and post it up on our special board. Read, share and get inspired by people's memorable journeys. We will also have a themed colouring table available daily during the holidays.
