The Bird by Paul Kim features artworks painted on hanging scrolls, known as Jokja in Korean. The silk scrolls enabled artworks to be easily transported and kept for a long time. The artworks by Mr Kim use oriental techniques but feature New Zealand subjects including native birds, flowers and trees. Mr Kim was responsible for the Korean poi pole outside the central library. Museum manager The Packard and Pioneer Museum manager's name was incorrectly spelt in the Whangarei Leader last week -- it should be Richard Easton. Mr Easton is trying to secure a Guinness World Record for the largest private collection of Packard vehicles. The Town Basin sample exhibition History on Wheels is open Tuesday to Sunday. Fatal crash A crash just south of Whangarei on Monday, November 12 resulted in the death of Rotorua woman, Saphron Jane Greenfield, aged 26. The crash happened at 2.20pm when a logging truck and two cars collided on SH1, Otaika, at the foot of Lookout Hill. Artisans bring wares to bridge By DENISE PIPER To market: Kaari Schlebach is excited about the start of the Artisans Fair Canopy Bridge markets this Saturday. Photo: DENISE PIPER People are being given opportunities to get creative and make a bit of extra money with the Artisans Fair Canopy Bridge markets. This season's markets will start this Saturday at the Canopy Bridge in the Town Basin. The markets have been delayed slightly to give the Whangarei District Council contractors time to install a new wind diffuser which aims to stop wind gusts and give some protection to stall holders. Organiser Kaari Schle- bach says she has received heaps of bookings for the season from artists and craft people all over Northland putting their creative ener- gies to the test. People are trying to find an extra source of income for their families.'' Carvings, weaving and handmade buttons are just some of the new items being sold this season, she says. Regular stallholders are back too, she says, and many have booked for the whole season. Kaari says people getting creative is the whole aim of the fairs and she encourages everyone to have a go. Stall fees have been reduced this year to enable more people to take part and make the markets more sus- tainable. Kaari says she is excited about the new wind diffuser and thankful to the council for coming to the party to get the project done. This year there will also be an eftpos facility available. As well as art and craft stalls the fairs will include musical entertainment, gourmet food, interactive arts and other entertain- ment. The Artisans Fairs will run weekly on Saturdays from 9am till 1.30pm, con- cluding with a special Christmas market on December 22. The fairs will then take a two-week break, returning on January 12 and running weekly through January. A Maori-themed market will be held on February 2 before Waitangi Day, two Endless Summer markets will be held on February 23 and March 23 and the season will finish with an Easter Market on Monday, April 1.
