Tarawera eruption

 stitched by the Rotorua Guild

From the guild

The Rotorua Embroiderers Guild chose the The Tarawera Eruption as their subject because the scene of devastation with the hot pools and Mount Tarawera in the background is very significant to our area. Visitors coming to Rotorua very often visit The Buried Village and spend time looking through the museum and reading the literature associated with the disaster. The hot pools feature very strongly in our piece, and of course these are very relevant to other parts of Rotorua.

The members enjoyed taking their turn stitching. A project such as this builds fellowship within the guild and helps us take an interest in what other guilds are doing.
