Delighted to be open again at our Resourceful Ōtautahi Pop-Up Workshop at 100 Peterborough Street, opposite the Peterborough Street Library, central Christchurch city.
We will be there offering free workshops on Mondays, Tuesdays & Wednesdays from 12 to 4pm. And other session times are available for booking by groups. These workshops compliment the other workshops we offer at Ferrymead Heritage Park, there are more details here about those.
These workshops give you the opportunity to come and spend time in the central city, learning skills that put undervalued natural resources into use. You can learn to make string and weave with tī kōuka or cabbage tree leaves, or carve a peg from a stick, or even once you're practiced your whittling skills you could carve a spoon, and build up to make some larger objects. We will support you to safely and successfully learn new resourceful skills.
These workshops have been wonderfully supported by Christchurch City Council, TreeTech, Mackleys, Containers & More, Four Seasons Tree Care, and Life in Vacant Spaces.
We could not be more grateful to the Christchurch City Council for enabling these resourceful experiences in our city.
