Home Ground 3-Day Christmas Gift Workshop



Home Ground is running a series of 3-day workshops and the first of these will be next week!


WHAT: Making Christmas gifts!


WHEN: 9:30-2pm, Tuesday 7th, Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th of December


WHERE: The Pasifika Hub in Lower Hutt


HOW: For more information email us at homeground.poneke@gmail.com OR get a referral from your Probation Officer.


WHY: 3 days of making art and Christmas presents. This will hopefully relieve a bit of the financial pressure around this time of year, and get us back to basics with the true spirit of this precious family time.


These Creative Arts Recovery and Employment Fund (CARE) workshops are funded by Manatū Taonga Ministry for Culture & Heritage.

Our 3-day workshops aim to provide a safe, nurturing space that encourages community well-being. This December workshop will be three days of making art and Christmas presents. This will hopefully relieve a bit of the financial pressure around this time of year, and get us back to basics with the true spirit of this precious family time.


We will be working with clay and other exciting arts ideas to make our Christmas gifts and ornaments. Our awesome artists will be there to share their knowledge and ideas!


Because these workshops are three days at a time (not the 8 weeks of the other Home Ground programmes), we have the flexibility to try some new art forms, and get a sense of PLAY and FUN back. This is all about feeling good in the moment, taking a break from the stress, and tapping into different resources to get us through this tough time.


For more information and a referral, please speak to your Probation Officer, or email us at homeground.poneke@gmail.com.

Thank you Manatū Taonga Ministry for Culture & Heritage for your support.
