Make a wish to Hiwa i te Rangi

3 Jun 10:00AM - 16 Jul 7:00AM

 Make a wish to Hiwa i te Rangi

Following her 2021 exhibition Hiwa I te Rangi, Penny Howard recreates an installation of her whai (string game) from her signature red thread in The Corner of the Homestead Galleries reception. You are invited to write your wish, hope, aspiration or karakia for Matariki on the back of one of the wishbones held in the kono (basket) and tie it to the whai.    

At the conclusion of Matariki on Saturday 16 July, we will host a dawn ceremony during the time when Matariki is visible in the sky where we will burn all the wishes gathered and send them up to Hiwa for the new year. 

Part of Matariki Festival 2022.



*Closed on Queen's Birthday Mon 06 June and Matariki Holiday Fri 24 June*

No bookings required.
