Oamaru stone initial block (includes donation)



Enjoy having a cool piece of the Arts Centre at home, while also having the warm feeling of having made a donation to the restoration work onsite. A unique gift for the person who has everything!

As the restoration project gathers momentum, a team of dedicated stone masons work to repair and replicate the ornate Gothic Revival stonework that is a feature of the Arts Centre. Over 200,000 kg of Oamaru stone was used onsite in 2015, making the Arts Centre the biggest consumer of this stone in New Zealand!

The fresh and bright new Oamaru stone block measures 120mm x 120mm x 60mm deep, has smoothed edges and can be carved with the single initial of your choice in a classic decorative script. We will contact you to confirm the initial you desire.

As this is an extremely HEAVY item, we *cannot* mail or courier this block and you will either have to pick it up in person at the Arts Centre, or if you live in central Christchurch, we can arrange to drop it off to you.

You can opt to receive a gift card with the block, blank inside for your gift message.

By buying an initial block, you are also making a donation to the Arts Centre project, and you will receive a tax receipt for the charitable portion of your purchase. Please note if paying via credit card that we only accept Visa and MasterCard.
