New Zealand’s future Monet may about to be discovered as budding young artists are being given the chance to learn from one of New Zealand’s most successful painters these school holidays.
Well known local landscape artist Tony Roche will be hosting workshops for children over five-years-old at Milford Shopping Centre. As part of the workshop, Tony will be giving the children the opportunity to create a painting of a local landscape and will be on hand to provide guidance and mentor the protégés through their work.
Tony is a self taught artist who has been painting professionally for twenty years and is known as a prominent landscape artist, with oil paintings held in private collections around the world.

Experience the Difference with Milford Homestore
Milford Homestore first opened its doors in Milford Shopping Centre in 2008, offering a modern range of kitchenware, homeware, bath, bed and culinary products.
Barb Beaumont, owner of Milford Homestore, says her store strives to create an inspiring shopping environment for people who are passionate about their homes
“We want you to enjoy the experience, have fun, touch and taste and feel comfortable asking questions,” she says.
What makes the Homestore different is value for money. Barb and her colleagues spend a lot of time sourcing products that are high quality, functional, beautiful and most importantly, value for money. They also research the market before selecting a range and often use the products at home before putting them into the store.
“Value for money not only means purchasing a good quality product. It also means getting the right advice for its use and care before you leave the shop, as well as after sales service should anything go wrong,” says Barb.
“Our staff are knowledgeable about the products we sell and we hold regular training meetings, learning and using items in the store so that we have a hands-on appreciation of everything we stock. This can be quite the undertaking, because our extensive product range is something that really sets The Homestore apart.”
With a vast range including kitchenware, glassware, dinnerware, cutlery, bath accessories, linen (bed, bath and table), mirrors, food, furniture, appliances and homeware, Milford Homestore is a great place to shop for people of all different tastes, and is particularly good for wedding lists.
