Chalk Art

Children jumped at the chance to get creative with Chalk Art at the Wainuiomata Rural Festival. We also collaborated with MIX to run the stalls selling their awesome art!

Youth Mural Training

Artist Claire Rye taught spray and mural techniques to six Lower Hutt Teens. Some of them had previously been caught tagging the local shopping centre so these workshops gave them a chance to learn and engage in mural art and gain confidence. This photo shows them preparing for the Mural painting day in Queens Arcade, Lower Hutt.

Wainuiomata 7-Day Makeover

Sharing in the community spirit at the Wainuiomoata 7-day Makeover. Local families joined in our sculpture project by making recycled flowers for Queen Street. We then displayed these in Oamaru Stone in front of the library. 

Upcycling Workshops

Our collaboration with Hutt Timebank and The Petone Depot created a series of low cost sewing workshops for the community with upcycling, mending and sewing skills.
