What you'll do
You’ll come into our beautiful workshops in an historic stone building at the Arts Centre in central Christchurch city. Here you’ll be surrounded by handmade objects, handtools, books about traditional crafts and the scent of wood & leaves. You’ll learn how to twine the indigenous tī kōuka or cabbage tree leaves into a strong durable, and beautiful string. We’ll also share during the workshop, stories of our unique work at Rekindle over the years.
I'm a craftsperson focused on creating opportunities for resourcefulness through craft. I have been running resourceful projects in Christchurch that address waste, and show the value in local materials that are often overlooked, for example: previous timbers from homes that were being demolished, fallen leaves from the tī kōuka or cabbage tree which are plentiful & often seen as a pest, and green wood felled in the city that often becomes woodchip.
All materials & equipment provided.
