Matariki and STEPS – Mt Albert Library

June 23rd, 2013

Colleen Foster has kindly woven a tukutuku panel for STEPS, taking all her materials from the Roy Clements Treeway.

Following her active participation in our recent Ahurangi Festival, Colleen is now displaying the completed panel at the Mt Albert Library for 1 month during Matariki (22 June – 22 July).

For details on time, see “Mt Albert” at the following link:

Please feel free to visit Colleen at the library for an informed explanation by a wonderful local kuia. STEPS is delighted to support her and participate in Matariki.

We are grateful to Colleen for taking the time to produce such a beautiful item, and extended a formal appreciation at our recent AGM.
