Medbury School, 109 Clyde Road, Ilam, Christchurch.
This year’s gathering of published children’s writers and illustrators is being held in Christchurch at Queen’s Birthday weekend. Extending the theme of the successful Spinning Tales held in Auckland in 2011, Golden Yarns offers something for everyone –– a stimulating programme of craft-based sessions, workshops and panel discussions, complemented by exhibitions of illustration art and keynote addresses by Greg O’Brien and Kate de Goldi.
The weekend is being organised by Te Tai Tamariki: New Zealand Children’s Literature Preservation Charitable Trust. Based in Christchurch, Te Tai Tamariki’s immediate goals are to preserve and display illustrations from children’s literature, including exhibitions that tour throughout the country. Taking on this year’s writers and illustrators hui is part of our effort to re-establish ourselves after losing our premises in the February 2011 earthquake.
