Last minute preparations...

Just a few days to go until the opening at Puke Ariki - excitement is building, the full size click-raft is in place in New Plymouth with a wonderful mix of brave, explorative prefab experiments already assembled, and arriving outside on New Plymouth's extraordinary waterfront. Meanwhile Ellen and Ben have been slaving away with the CNC machines producing puzzlekits for kids and curious minds  of all ages to assemble, test out and explore, to make their own.

Puke Ariki Click-Raft Fabrication at Stanley Factory

Things are getting exciting, the Puke Ariki exhibition launch is getting very close now. Fabrication at the Stanley Factory has happened like clock-work, all pieces were cut in one morning, and the 4.8 x 2.6 raft assembled shortly afterwards, we took some photos at the factory at the end of the week before it was dis-assembled and flatpacked to be transported to New Plymouth. Many thanks to Gary Caulfied, Sean Wood and team at Stanley, and Craig Floyd at Plytech for suppling the plywood.
