Sunday 23 August, 11am-4.30pm, Tī kōuka placemat workshop at the Arts Centre

(Rekindle Workshop, upstairs in the Boys’ High building at The Arts Centre, 28 Worcester Boulevard)

This class is suitable for adults and runs for four hours with a half hour lunch break - please bring lunch.

This workshop teaches you to use tī kōuka or cabbage tree leaves to weave a table mat, which involves a round weave. This technique can be used with many different plant fibres & other materials.

If you have access to tī kōuka / cabbage tree leaves, do bring in as big a bundle as you can! We would be most appreciative as we always need more of this valuable resource.

There are 8 places available in this workshop.

Bookings are essential, non-refundable and non-transferable. We do, however, understand that things come up and try and accommodate people to the best of our ability. This can include moving people to another class or a refund - but please be aware that this is reliant on us filling the original spot.



This is because all of our pricing, and our efforts to keep costs as low as possible while still paying the tutors a fee commensurate with their experience and allowing them to cover the costs of living, is based on running these classes with a certain number of participants.

We are grateful to the support of CNZ, which has allowed us to offer this workshop at a subsidised rate.

Management of COVID-19 risk:

Please be assured this workshop will be managed with the utmost care in terms of risk management in relation to COVID-19. This will include: hand sanitiser being provided & its use required; hand washing facilities nearby; regular disinfection of shared surfaces, and everyone is invited to bring a mask to wear if they’d prefer to do so.

Participants who are unwell, or who are required to self-isolate, must not attend the workshop. Refunds will be given if participants need to miss the workshop in order to manage the risk of COVID-19, however we need to be advised of this as soon as possible, so that we can fill the space. Refunds will not be given if participants arrive to the workshop unwell on the day.
