It is with more delight than words can say, that I share with you the news that our Resourceful Skills Workshops are underway in central Ōtautahi Christchurch. To begin we are running workshops that focus on skills that enable functional use of cabbage tree/tī kōuka leaves from 10am to 2pm on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays. This includes string and rope making, basket and mat weaving.
These workshops are open to anyone, and over time we will be increasing the hours that these workshops are available. Resourceful Ōtautahi wouldn't be what it is without the generous support of Christchurch City Council, Life in Vacant Spaces, Trent Hiles, Mackleys, Containers & More and TreeTech.
