Dunedin Round 2


Occupy Dunedin




Olveston House Gardens




Olveston House




Splashes of colour








An embroidery guild exhibition in the Otago Settlers' Museum - unfortunately the museum itself was under renovations so this was the only exhibition.




This cleric's robes were so different from the Irish ones I've seen.




Other religious embroidery. Such intricate stitching.



I really loved this 3D piece - multiple layers of organza I think I recall.



And cute felt decorations for sale.




Off to the Chinese gardens next door. Chinese tea and pork buns for lunch.











This is a relatively recent build, celebrating the relationship with the Chinese community in NZ and China. The gardens were designed and built by Shanghai builders who constructed the gardens in China first using local Chinese stone and then shipped everything to New Zealand. Can't help but think the carbon footprint it a lot bigger than it should be!

All in all, a lovely weekend in Dunedin.
