Lake House Arts Interactive (LHAI) is a new initiative to engage our community in exciting and original online content during the COVID-19 Community Phase 4 Isolation, and beyond.

From Monday March 30th 2020 we will begin uploading arts and community videos/activities for adults and kids to enjoy and participate in. Our art classes are going online too! There will be links to additional content and activities and you will be able to share your content and creations for interactive collabs. Look for our content schedule being prepared today and uploaded over the weekend. Links to all content will be on our Facebook Page, so LIKE US for all the latest updates.

We hope you will stay tuned and bear with us while we all find our feet in this brand new territory for our teachers, artists, and collaborators.

The makers of these quilts participate in an annual challenge and the theme for 2020 is: “Enigma”

Dorothy Collard, who is commemorated by this exhibition, was a passionate quilter who left a legacy which provided a greenstone trophy and several monetary awards for an annual challenge. The Auckland Quilt Guild continues with the award in honour of her memory.

About Auckland Quilt Guild
We are one of the largest patchworking and quilting organisations in New Zealand.
The Guild was formed in 1985 (as the Auckland Patchworkers & Quilters Guild Inc) by a group of local quilters who had successfully hosted the first national quilting symposium. Our aims and objectives are to:
- Promote the art and craft of patchwork and quilting.
- Bring quilters together and encourage the establishment of quilting groups.
- Encourage and maintain high standards of craftsmanship and design in both traditional and contemporary quilting
- Organise exhibitions.
