Crafting Workshops ReKindle

All year round

Opportunities for resourcefulness through craft

Resourcefulness is creating what we need from what is around and within us, for the wellbeing of the planet and people. Learn and share new skills. Free and low cost weekday craft workshops for Community Services Card holders and community groups, thanks to support from Creative New Zealand. Book online work shops for purchase. Films feature Ōtautahi Christchurch-based craft practitioners who teach the same skills and many more in our Rekindle workshop. An introductory film about Rekindle is included with every purchase, along with an introduction to the material of tī kōuka (cabbage tree) leaves for our weaving and string making workshops.


Some workshops are free and some may have a cost. Free/low cost workshops under a Craft Opportunities programme for those that hold Community Services Cards
