Whakatū Nelson

We are delighted to be able to extend our teaching to Whakatū Nelson, with two Rekindle craftspeople: Gemma Stratton and Annie Mackenzie.

Gemma (based in Parapara) teaches weaving and brush-making, and Annie (based in Granity) teaches weaving and drop-spindle spinning. In time we hope to work with more resourceful craft practitioners in the area, as well as touring our Ōtautahi based tutors to Whakatū.

We are grateful for the support of our local hosts, Fairfield House and the Refinery Artspace. If you would like to host a workshop in your venue, or arrange a private workshop for a group of friends or colleagues, please get in touch. We are also keen to hear from community groups in Whakatū who would like to access free tuition through our Craft Opportunities programme.
