This Sunday, the 13th of May is Mothers’ Day. We thought it would be nice to make orignami swans for everyone that comes to Majestic and give one to each to remind them of their mothers.

You know, swans are faithful, like Mum’s. They are fiercely protective, like Mum’s. They are graceful, like Mum’s. They are beautiful, yeah, you’re right, like Mum’s.

Last night at The Workroom, we got together a bunch of extremely artistic people and embarked on making a few hundreds of them.

Here is the first draft for #InstaSalt. Amazing photos! Love it! Keep them coming!

SALT BLOG is running an Instagram photography chance to have your photos blogged here.

We knew the Gap-Fillers project people were on to something as soon as they announced their latest installment in the city: The Dance-O-Mat.

Ok, I should explain what Gap-Fillers Project is, first.

After the quake of Christchurch on February 22, 2011, many buildings had to come down in the city. Many places were deemed unsafe to live in. Many spaces had to be revamped and cleared. If you look at Christchurch now, you will notice there is a lot of empty spaces. A lot of gaps.

The Gap Fillers Project was started by people in the city who decided not  to leave these empty spaces morbidly empty as they were but to instead fill it up with art and creativity.

Dance-O-Mat is just one of their many innovation to fill up the gaps.
