It was all about the pirates and princesses at The Papermill's school holiday open day in Whangārei.
Around 15 children, with parents and grandparents in tow headed along to The Papermill on Whangārei's Kamo Rd on Tuesday.
Creative director Annelies Leeuwenburg said the organisation's paper makers showed those who turned up how they make paper and helped them make costume accessories - tiaras, magic wands, pirate swords and pirate hats.
Photographer Michael Cunningham got amongst the creativity.
