The ReCreators are delivering a skills-based Xmas gifts workshop.

We are here to empower communities to make and give unique and beautiful gifts by upcycling rather than buy new.

There is a joy from making and receiving something truly personally while helping our planet and pocket by reusing materials that already exist.

The activity stalls we will have are:

  • Jewellery – Making braiding and beads
  • Woodwork – Robots, bird feeders, planter boxes
  • Eco Pamper Packs – Learn DIY bath and body recipes
  • Sewing – Make a cute ruru toy or a stocking

Location: Auckland Central Library, Lorne Street

Places are limited so book your place now. Don't miss out. Choose from the list below and load into your shopping cart.

Suitable for all ages.

Proudly supported by Waitemata Local Board.
