Artworks, mud pies and you! Artworks, mud pies and YOU – is there a connection? Certainly there is and it will become obvious if you make your way to the Clay Fiesta at the Old School Arts Centre this weekend – or just read on! At the Clay Fiesta you will see a gallery exhibition featuring some truly lovely artworks made by local ceramic artists, most of whom have, or have had, strong connections to Raglan’s community Clay Shed. Think Susan Flight, Merren Goodison, Robyn Lloyd, Clare Wimmer, Susanne Prinz, Lucretia Perkins to name just some of those whose work is known and loved. So what about the mud pies?

Printmaking for children
Another after school class at the Old School Arts Centre is about to start, with Ruth Ports class on printmaking on Wednesday afternoons, from 3.30 – 5.30pm, starting on 22 February.
Dr Oliver Russell Dr Gill Brady Dr Marcia Mitchley 10 Bankart Street, Raglan
The class will include vegetable and leaf prints, PVA prints, cardboard and lino prints, a magical process which can be a much more satisfying for some children than having to draw or paint images free hand. Prints can be used for cards and wrapping papers as well as in making beautiful, original artworks. Ruth is herself an experienced teacher, artist and weaver, so this is an opportunity not to be missed by children who would like to explore a different way of working with colours and shapes. Ring the Old School 825 0023 to book for this class as places are limited. Judith Collins

A project that was originally coordinated by Deborah Fenton along with Jenny Rhodes, Andre Te Wheoro and Wayne Morris from the Raglan Community Board, the sculptures were born out of the Community Employment Group’s initiative to provide opportunities for unemployed people in Raglan. Te Aturangi Clamp, a Maori sculptor who has received accolades for his carvings both in New Zealand and overseas, primarily tutored the group as well as serving as an inspiration.
The sculpture represents different directions with each carving representing north, east, south and west. What some may not know is that underneath these sculptures lie four crystals, buried before the sculptures were placed – an extra guitar lies under the ‘North’ stone, buried there by Brian Ruawai, who took part in the course. Ten years on, the sculptures are still standing strong if not a little weathered by the elements and the people that were involved in the course have also moved on to see various successes.

Tai Meuli, who participated in the course has gone on to become a much acclaimed stone carver, commissioned to produce work for the Vero Excellence in Business Awards and the winner’s trophy for the V8 Supercars.

Expo organizer Chris Preece works at a specialist learning school in Hamilton when not busy organizing the expo and has previously helped the school raise funds for special equipment. “Nico crossed my path through one of the team involved in the Expo. He is a great kid and is in need of new equipment to make daytoday living easier. So here we are working with the family to help a very deserving wee man,” says Chris. The tenyearold boy from Cambridge was born with muscular dystrophy – a disorder that attacks the body’s muscles and progressively leads to muscle loss. Despite these setbacks early in his life, Nico has never let them hold him back. !"# $%$&'# (&# )*+"&# (%,# -*,"# cookbook to raise money for the Christchurch Earthquake Relief

The guest list for Monday includes sponsors and funders, individuals and organisations involved with the project, community representatives, Ngaati Maahanga, and members of the Raglan Museum Society. “The new museum is the culmination of efforts by the Raglan and District Museum Society, Waikato District Council, and many other parties, and we certainly wouldn’t have this facility if it was not for the sponsors and funders,” said Raglan resident and councillor Clint Baddeley. Cr Baddeley has been a key advocate in the longrunning campaign for a new building to house Raglan’s museum. B!;+6"#,&@&$#<&.*,#.8+#"(&#?6,&6?#).,#/+:."&7#%$#"(&#+/7#-*&# station building on Wainui Road but it was far from adequate,” said Cr Baddeley. “The museum committee wanted a new building and I took an interest in the project on the basis a new building would be multi use, and showcase both historic and cultural aspects that make Raglan special and unique.” After Cr Baddeley went to Wellington to meet with the then Minister for Arts and Culture Judith Tizard, Mrs Tizard visited Raglan to see the old museum. She agreed to lend her support to the campaign for a new building. Cr Baddeley said this was at a time when Raglan was rapidly growing in popularity, both as a tourist destination and as a place to live. He said it made sense to also have the information centre in the same building as the museum. “The idea was to build something different for Raglan and to show Raglan life. The new museum is a distinctly Raglan feature.”

This was pinched from under a tree around the 31st Jan/2nd Feb, where my son had left it along with his clothes, to go and have a swim as it was a very hot day. On his return, the board and his clothes were gone! On Saturday 11th Feb, my son took his long board to the park which was a Christmas present from me and also a new board, and whilst sitting chatting to some new friends that he had recently made, leaving this board at the end of the bowl, still in view of my son, the second he looked away, it was quickly pinched from under his nose! He or his friends did not see who took this. Someone must have seen who has pinched these boards or know who has and we would like you to let the police know as we have reported both these incidents to the local police. So if you have them or know who has them, please drop the boards into the local police station. Thank you Hazel & Luke Eldridge, Raglan
