  • Sun 14 Jul 2024, 10:00am–4:00pm


All Ages

Join us at Howick Historical Village to discover what the Victorians did on their days off in our live day devoted to hobbies, games and crafts!

Meet costumed villagers crafting up a storm in the parlour of the grand homestead, Puhi Nui! Make a rag rug from fabric scraps and see the vintage hand-crank sewing machine in action.

Churn butter and make your own beeswax candle to take home. Learn the art of bookbinding with members of the Association of Book Crafts. See the blacksmiths at work at the forge and the coal range fired-up. Taste freshly baked bread, hot from the bread oven and visit the sweet shop filled with old-fashioned lollies and fudge!

With craft activities, outdoor games, and performances - Morris dancing at 10:30am & 11:30am bagpipe band at 12pm - there will be lots of fun for everyone! Have brunch or lunch Homestead Café and make a day of it!
