Seduce: to lead astray, to tempt into sin or crime, corrupt, persuade and cause abandonment of principles.

Now what better way to warm up a mid-winter evening than to learn how to shimmy and seduce, in a room swathed in veils, mystique and eastern magic. Soft lighting, wine and chocolates set the scene and soften the senses for this most sensual of lessons, that is a giggle for you and a gift for him. So ladies, bring your sense of humour and adventure for a night of seduction tuition and fun. Contact tutor Paige Adamson on 021 999 848 for more information.

Matariki Celebrations

Matariki is the Māori name for a cluster of stars which is visible in the New Zealand night sky at a specific time of the year. Matariki re-appears in the dawn sky mid-winter signalling the start of the Māori New Year and the date changes each year according to the Māori lunar calendar.

Whakaraupo Carving Centre tutor Caine Tauwhare from local hapu Ngāti Wheke talks about the significance and traditions of Matariki here
