Art & Craft for the Soul 

We run 2-3 art and craft sessions per year where we focus on exploring the seasons, nature, events such as Matariki, Easter and Christmas. This is a time to be mindful, creative, nourish the soul, enjoy good food and company too.


We are well known for our creative craft workshops which have a European twist on a kiwi celebration!


You will be surprised how amazing your pieces look at the end of the day - even if you don't consider yourself arty!

Creative Art for 2020

FOR ANYONE WHO WISHES TO BE CREATIVE! We are in the planning stages and look forward to sharing our ideas with you for 2020 very soon.

We are thrilled to announce that we will be running two craft workshops in the Spring thanks to funding from Rotorua Creative Communities Scheme that will help cover some of the costs.

You will be able to make a range of items including 'Alcohol Ink Tile Art', 'Bags and Tags' with a Christmas theme. It is relaxing, very therapeutic and you will be surprised what you can accomplish in 3hrs!

Dr Barbara Hochstein - Patron has a passion for craft and has for many years facilitated these wonderful workshops. She is looking forward to sharing her talent around these workshops with us.

A small fee of $25.00 per session or $50.00 to attend both will help contribute to the cost of craft materials over the two evenings. 

We will provide a cuppa and a little something to eat too. These workshops are best suited to adults and a lovely chance to share ideas and support one another.
