Colourful creations, including a mermaid and a big fish named Bungle, will feature in the annual exhibition of the papermakers from the Whangārei Papermill.
The paper creations are fitting for the exhibition's name, 'Under the Sea', which includes different techniques the papermakers used for their artworks.
The exhibition - hosted by The Blue Goose Papermill Charitable Trust - opens at Whangārei Central Library from 10am to 1pm on Saturday, when the papermakers will be on hand and people can try their hand at papermaking.
The exhibition runs from 9.30am to 2.30pm next Monday to Friday.

The incident was reported near Kaingaroa, east of Awanui on State Highway 10, at about 7.30am. St John Ambulance and police responded. The man was found to be in good health but left before police arrived.
