Craft Opportunities Programme launch

We are so pleased to announce that we are now offering free and low-cost weekday resourceful craft workshops for Community Services Card holders and community groups who experience barriers to access, thanks to support from Creative New Zealand.

This is a chance to try your hand at printing, weaving, carving and more, and to experience the welllbeing that comes from making things, in a group, from the resources around us

If you hold a Community Services Card or a Supergold “combo” Card, visit the Resourceful Skills Workshops section of our website HERE, and look for the sessions with “Craft Opportunities” in their title.

If you are involved in a community group that works with people who experience financial hardship, mental distress, stigma, isolation and/or disability, or anything else that might make accessing our regular workshop programme difficult, please get in touch with us at - we’d love to hear from you!

Many of the workshops are free, as all the tuition is subsidised (thanks again, CNZ!). Sometimes there is a small charge as we need to cover the cost of materials.

We are delighted to have employed experienced crafts people Diana Duncan, Mihi Adams and Simone Bensdorp to deliver these workshops at our workshop at The Arts Centre Te Matatiki Toi Ora.
