Raglan Social Club

Fresh new tastes

 

With the arrival of summer, The Raglan Social Club welcomes the warm weather with some fresh new tastes.

Keeping to their motto of ‘simple food done well’, the Social Club has become famous for their fresh salads and packed cabinet goods. At just $9 for a small and $15 for a large, check in with the Social Club regularly to see what’s on for the day. Owners Rach and Aza have also tripled the amount of offerings for summer, adding more dairy free, gluten free and vegan options.

One of the current menu favourites is the Buddha Bowl featuring a blend of quinoa, roasted veggies, beet hummus, edamame beans, avo and a specialty green goddess dressing. Topped off with a roasted lemon and choice of protein, this fresh medley will fill you up and give you a midday boost of energy.

If you’re on the hunt for more of those breakky flavours, you might want to try out a benedict or the flavour packed fried polenta cakes with halloumi and mushrooms. Paired with an iced coffee, it’ll make the perfect start to your summer day.

Also on offer is the famous Ragburger, served with a side of chips and dripping with housemade sauces, the Ragburger is ever-changing, keeping a constant fresh taste on a classic favourite.

The Social Club offers chilled out vibes, great coffee, and delicious eats no matter what you’re in the mood for. With a family-friendly vibe, it’s the perfect hangout for everyone.

Visit the Social Club 7-days a week on 23 Bow Street.

HeartBeads / NZ  Handmade Glass Art

From Venice to Raglan, glass artist Peter Hohenberger GIVES us a glimpse into his beading life

 

Peter Hohenberger – The Glass Artist:

What fascinated me most in high school was art, particularly Art Noveau with all those intricate flowing, flowery, complicated designs.

When I migrated to New Zealand in 1996, after a professional career in software and high-tech IT in Europe, I set up “La Fleur bleue”, a glass studio dedicated to the art of L.C Tiffany. For many years I created beautiful lamps, mirrors and windows, reflecting the work of Mr Tiffany and introducing my own designs.

Ten years ago I watched a glass artist in Venice working at the torch, melting glass, creating three-dimensional objects, and I was hooked. Since then, I started HeartBeads, making handmade glass objects and jewellery completed with sterling silver. Everything is created in Raglan, New Zealand.

HeartBeads  – The Studio:

What I do

I concentrate on glass objects, beads and jewellery, created from my own work. My inspirations come from simply looking out of the window at Moonlight Bay – the colours of Aotearoa, the light and the ever- changing wonders of nature.

How I do it

My raw glass comes from Murano, an island near Venice, Italy. Working on a glass artist’s torch (running on LPG and oxygen) I melt this glass into different shapes and structures, giving colours with different transparent and opaque glass. Techniques like raking, swirling, dots help me to shape every single glass object into something totally unique. There will never be two the same.

Open studio – what you will see

You can watch me working “at the flame” – using the torch, melting glass, making beads. You can even try your luck and make your own bead! It might be easier than you think … (Conditions apply.) For more information go to:

The HeartBeads Studio is located at 78D Greenslade Rd (ph 07 8250992)
