Sign up! Home Ground 3-Day Christmas Gift Workshop!

The project runs from 9:30-2pm Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, 29 Nov - 1 Dec.


Three days of trying different art forms (visual arts, jewellery making, presents and more!) with different artists, in a beautiful community space, with other women. Lunch provided.


Toi Pōneke Arts Centre, 61/69 Abel Smith Street, Te Aro, Wellington 6011


9:30-2pm, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 29 Nov-1 Dec.


There will be 6-10 women on the course, and different artists will come and share their skills. The Home Ground crew will be running the show!


Day one: After an introduction to Home Ground, and getting to know each other we will have lunch at 12. In the afternoon we will do an art workshop. We finish at 2pm.

Day two: After a morning check in, we will do a workshop 10-12, then eat lunch. 12:30-2 we will do an arts workshop, and finish at 2pm.

Day three: We will do an art workshop in the morning. We have lunch at 12, and then we will do a small workshop in the afternoon, and finish at 2pm.

Materials: Home Ground will provide all the art materials.

Dress comfortably, bring a water bottle, we provide food and hot drinks!

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.

We will be working with 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.

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