The Arts Cen­tre Te Matatiki Toi Ora, Worces­ter Boule­vard, Christchurch Re­source­ful craft and green wood­work­ing are to the fore with so­cial en­ter­prise Rekin­dle’s new pres­ence in the re­stored west­ern end of the Arts Cen­tre. Rekin­dle pre­vi­ously trans­formed earth­quak­ere­lated de­mo­li­tion waste into fur­ni­ture and use­ful wares, and now pro­motes sus­tain­able, tra­di­tional craft through work­shops – from stool-mak­ing to harakeke weav­ing and string-mak­ing with cab­bage-tree leaves. Rekin­dle re­cently crafted a com­mu­nal ta­ble and benches for the his­toric Boys’ High build­ing us­ing ash logs from Ha­gley Park des­tined for wood chip­ping. rekin­dle.org.nz, arts­cen­tre.org.nz
