Tree-mendous effort put in to decorations

Lucy Nicol (5) admires her handiwork hanging on the Christmas tree at Otago Museum’s elves workshop and makerspace on Saturday afternoon.

She made a wire star tree ornament at the busy crafting station as a steady stream of children worked industriously on free craft activities in the museum’s first-floor atrium.

Christmas kraken peg ornaments, pipe cleaner shooting stars and gingerbread people sewing kits were among the activities on offer to provide crafting options for a wide range of skill levels and age groups.

The makerspace is open daily at the museum until Christmas Eve.
