Craft Without Borders

Check Facebook for updates

Crafting is a mindful practice and a great way to bond with strangers

Hosted in Sydenham at the Latvian Community Hall, the Craft Without Borders team offers crafting sessions where all equipment and the sessions themselves are provided free of charge. Latvian House generously provides their space free of charge, which in turn keeps the crafting sessions free. Although the sessions are free, a koha is much appreciated and goes towards the upkeep of Latvian House. It’s a chance to sit and create together. You will work on something and help each other out.

Being part of Craft Without Borders means you get the joy of meeting new people, as well as going home with a skill learned and something you have created yourself.


Free. Koha appreciated.

Matariki 2023

Observed 14/07/23

Matariki is a time where people, whānau, and communities gather together to remember the year that has passed, to celebrate the present, and to plan for the next year. It is a time to remember our loved ones who are no longer with us, to feast and celebrate with our relatives and friends, and to look towards the future and the hope of a season full of bounty.
