Resourceful skills workshops

Throughout the year - Boys' High

Social enterprise Rekindle is dedicated to creating opportunities for resourcefulness, or making what we need from we have around us. The organisation shares creative skills to transform undervalued resources through craft.

From string making and spoon carving, to soap and eco-book making, Rekindle has a rich and varied programme of resourceful skills workshops running at the Arts Centre te Matatiki Toi Ora. It is continually adding new classes and crafts.

Workshops are held throughout the week and are listed on Rekindle’s website.

The organisation also holds regular tī kōuka cabbage tree leaves string-making classes for visitors on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. This is a fun experience for all ages and a unique, resourceful way to connect with Ōtautahi Christchurch.
