Wednesday 8 December, 10am-12pm, Craft Opportunities: Festive wreath making (Community Services Card holders)

This workshop takes place at Rekindle at the Arts Centre, upstairs in the Boys' High Building at 28 Worcester Boulevard.

Vaccination requirement: Anyone 12 and over attending our workshops at any level of the traffic light system must be fully vaccinated. Please bring proof of vaccination (My Vaccine Pass), to show at the start of your workshop. More details about how we are creating a safe space for you in our workshops that are held within an open public setting can be found HERE.

This Craft Opportunities workshop has been made free/low cost only for Community Service and SuperGold "Combo" Card holders by the support of funding from Creative New Zealand. You will be asked to show your card at the start of the workshop, so please ensure you bring it with you. Regular SuperGold Cards are not accepted, it must be a "Combo" card with CSC number on the back. Any costs charged for these programmes are only for materials. Cash donations on the day will be very welcome but are not expected.

Join us for this festive wreath-making workshop and learn how to make a strong and beautiful twine, which we will then transform into a wreath and decorate.


This class is suited to adults. One booking per person attending please. Minimum numbers are required for the class to run.

We will be using tī kōuka/cabbage tree leaves in this workshop as these are such an abundant and multi-purpose material that we can find all around us.

If you have access to fallen/brown tī kōuka / cabbage tree leaves, please bring in as big a bundle as you can! Please soak them first in water overnight if possible, if not longer.

The twine-making techniques taught in this workshop originate from the UK/Europe. 
Tangata whenua have been weaving with tī kōuka for hundreds of years here in Aotearoa. If you are interested learning traditional Māori weaving techniques, we can recommend contacting the wonderful team at Te Wānanga o Aotearoa who teach these locally. We also recommend the amazing mahi and workshops of the Kahu Collective.
