About these films

These instructional workshop films were created in response to changing circumstances in Aotearoa New Zealand and globally, that meant we could not deliver our craft workshops in person.
 We are delighted to now be able to offer these workshops online to a worldwide audience, and to be able to connect with you wherever you are. 
The films feature Ōtautahi Christchurch-based craft practitioners who teach the same skills and many more in our Rekindle workshop here. An introductory film about Rekindle is included with every purchase, along with an introduction to the material of tī kōuka (cabbage tree) leaves for our weaving and string making workshops.
Purchasing the films will give you access to the film webpages on our website which you can return to via the links on this page, to re-watch the films when convenient.
We are very grateful for the support of Creative New Zealand for funding for these films.  And huge thanks to Hilary Jean Tapper for the film work, Alexander Yerks for music, and to Kuva Zakheim for the audio. We are also indebted to the wonderful tutors involved: Gemma Stratton, Steven Junil Park, Douglas Horrell, Gregory Quinn and Juliet Arnott.
Proceeds from sales of these films go towards support our organisation to deliver our programme of resourceful skills workshop and other projects, as well as directly to our craftspeople, who have generously given their time on this project. Your purchase helps us support them to achieve sustainability in their careers as craft practitioners. These films are purchasable only for your personal use. If you would like to share this film with others, please get in touch with us.
We would love to hear your feedback about these films, and see what you manage to create after learning these skills, so please do email us at or tag us in your posts on Facebook @rekindlenz or Instagram @rekindle_nz.
