Waitaki Arts Festival: Meet the Maker

24 Oct

Across the weekend / Labour Day Weekend / Free community event / Koha welcome /


Waitaki is a maker’s paradise, with more artists, photographers and crafters than you can shake a stick at (please don’t do that, they’re busy making things). Meet the Maker is your annual chance to meet some of our region’s creative folk, not at an exhibition but right there in their homes, studios and workspaces. Find out what makes them tick, why Waitaki is a good place to make, and where they find inspiration…

Grab your friends, or just bring yourself, and hop in the car for a creative adventure to meet the makers of Waitaki! Pack a picnic or stop at one of the awesome cafes and eateries around the district for breakfast, brunch, lunch or just a coffee.


The Oamaru Opera House is an intimate & thoroughly unique New Zealand venue, community owned, bringing you the latest in entertainment from around the globe.
