Plunket Playgroup@Taieri Court Rest Home

Tuesday, May 1, 2018 to Tuesday, December 4, 2018

Taieri Court Rest Home is hosting a playgroup once a month. Bring you children along and interact with the residence of this lovely rest home.

Research suggests that intergenerational playgroups can break down feelings of isolation often associated with ageing and increase wellbeing in older people because they feel
valued and connected to the community. For families the relationship with older people add new dimensions to the life experiences of young children, especially when grandparents are not around.

Come and join us on Tuesday 1st May at 1:30

Natural Wonders of the World International Quilt Exhibition

Friday, May 11, 2018 to Sunday, May 13, 2018

Quilters and Patchworkers of Otago are excited to host an exhibition of “Natural Wonders of the World”, an international quilt challenge.

Thirty quilters from New Zealand, France and Japan are involved, ninety in total.

Each quilter was given a topic – a natural wonder. The same topics were used in each of the three countries resulting in three different perspectives on each topic.

All the quilts from New Zealand, Japan and France, 30 from each country, will be on display in Dunedin at The H D Skinner Annex, Otago Museum, 361 Great King Street Dunedin (Old Dunedin North Post Office) from Friday 11 May 2018 to Sunday 13 May. The opening hours are 10am to 5pm daily. $5 entry

The quilts have been exhibited in Japan and they will travel to France in August.

This is a unique opportunity to compare styles of the 3 countries as the 30 subjects are interpreted in different ways.

11am and 2pm daily

All tickets just $12!
