Sponsor the restoration of a complete stone archway
Sponsor the restoration of a complete stone archway made of carved Oamaru stonework as part of the huge restoration project at the Arts Centre – then come and visit it the next time you are in town. There are several impressive archways around the site, gateways and entrances with distinctive decorative carvings – these were a major feature of Neo Gothic architecture. We would dedicate one of these arches specifically to your donation, enabling you to point it out to friends and family when you visit.
Wherever possible the stonework is being repaired but some sections of the stone archways are being completely replaced. The team of skilled stonemasons from around the world onsite are using the original plans and old photographs to exactly replicate the smashed sections. The old sections and new sections of stone are being deliberately left as different colours so that you can admire the skill of the craftspeople working onsite.
Sponsor the restoration of a complete stone archway as a unique gift for someone special. We would also offer you a carved piece of stone to honour your donation. You can also opt to receive a free Arts Centre card, imprinted with the details of the sponsorship on the inside left side for you to send to them.
Your sponsorship will be classed as a charitable donation and a tax receipt will be provided. Please note if paying via credit card that we only accept Visa and MasterCard.
