Raglan Arts Weekend

Rangitahi is a proud sponsor.
With the Raglan Arts Weekend happening this Labour weekend, there is no better time to visit!

Raglan is well known for its creativity, and the level of art that this little community produces is amazing. You will be spoilt for choice with many renowned, local, and emerging talent exhibits. Raglan also has several galleries and art/design shops for you to browse through. There are approx. 36 artists displaying their work, and some live events to attend at various Raglan locations, which can be found using the RAW self-guided tour map.

Grab yourself a RAW brochure and follow the map to our celebrated artists and perhaps even take a piece of art home with you. If you are not sure where to start, head to the Old School Arts Centre for the preview exhibition to see a selection of local artists.

“The high standard of art attracts a loyal following of top art buyers from around the country, in addition to the hordes of visitors seeking out a special piece or just wanting to be inspired,” says Nicky Brzeska, RAW Co-Ordinator.

All details can be found at the new website www.raglanartsweekend.nz

It’s important to visit this site to see any changes to artist studio locations too.

Rangitahi Art Exhibition

This Labour weekend, the Rangitahi office (next to The Hut) will once more be converted to an Art Gallery and host the three local talents listed below.
We can't wait to see you enjoy this artful weekend in Raglan and the Rangitahi peninsula walks while you are here.


STUDIO O is the creative work of Fleur Rubingh. The work has been created using mixed media; digital illustrations, pencil, acrylics and film photography. The simple things in life drive my creativity, like a moment of joy when we come together and shared experiences.

My work is always evolving and ever changing like the seasons of life.

Labour of Wild

Labour of Wild fur felt hats are handcrafted by hat maker Lisa using traditional hat-making methods involving heat, steam, pressure and fire. Working with premium-quality fur felt, vintage tools and hat blocks, she transforms the rough hat bodies into timeless modern masterpieces.

Each hat becomes a unique, one of a kind heirloom.

Sarah Steed

Sarah Steed is an artist inspired by the ocean-deep teals, azure blues, aqua’s, silvery schiller and turquoise, colours that feel the depths of the ocean. She graduated from The Norwich School of Art and Design in BA (Hons) Fine Art Sculpture, but her love for stone, shape and metals soon turned her attention to jewellery design.
