The major projects to date are:
And we are undertaking our fourth large project in 2016; Resource: Rise Again, supported by Creative New Zealand, and Auckland Council (for part of the Auckland portion of the project). This project pays and supports designers to undertake periods of intensive problem-solving with commercial waste streams, resulting in the development of high quality reuse outcomes by October 2016.
Some of our other past projects include:

The ever-changing collaborative space at Shop Eight that Liz Phelan & Juliet Arnott opened together in April 2012:
Social Soup in Cashel Street: bringing people back into the very centre of Christchurch, December 2012. A work by Tessa Peach & Heather Hayward which included a long, long line of our trestle tables
The Pegahorn: A project facilitated with the children at the Chomondeley Children's Home for Sculpture on the Peninsula. Emma Byrne got this project going and had a team of helpers. Materials used were waste rope from Stark Brothers Shipping, driftwood and other found materials.

Our pop-up shop on Auckland's waterfront in December 2014, the fit out made from waste exhibition panels, carpet and ply, in collaboration with Dragonbox Design:
