I Heart NZ: New Zealand Made Giftware and Art Inspired by Aotearoa

Tuesday 27 November 2018 - Thursday 24 January 2019 - 15:30

Last year Lake House Shop took over the gallery in the run-up to Christmas and it was a big success. This year we are planning to do it all again but with a focus on celebrating New Zealand. 

New Zealand is known internationally as a breathtaking holiday destination with more tourists flocking to our shores each year. Aotearoa is also home to a vibrant creative community making high quality and uniquely New Zealand products.

Lake House is bringing together a collection of New Zealand inspired products from a curated group of artists, designers, and makers, living and working around the country. Our pop-up shop will offer you the chance to take home a special treat for yourself or find the perfect gift for a loved one.



The Pop-Up Shop will be held in the Becroft Gallery at the heart of Lake House, 37 Fred Thomas Drive, Takapuna.
