Inspiration was provided by the stunning Hei-Tiki - currently on display in the museum's Mauri exhibition - as children created and decorated their very own Maori necklaces.
The activities are based on a Pacific theme and include: Thursday, July 26, 1pm to 3pm - a fun clay workshop to create Maori necklaces - or Hei-Tiki - as displayed in the museum's latest exhibition Mauri.
Thursday, August 2, 1pm to 3pm - create a Hei-Tiki banner.
The exhibition - Mauri - features 22 carvings, called Hei-Tiki, that are worn around the neck.
