Celebrate Matariki and make a zero waste Poi with The ReCreators.

About this event

Learn to make poi with The ReCreators using reclaimed t-shirts and wool stuffing off-cuts.

T-shirts are upcycled and reused in every step of the process in this workshop, from making the poi's braid and pompom, to wrapping the poi ball.

Every scrap of waste made during the poi making process is incorporated back into the poi. This is truly a zero-waste class!

All materials and equipment will be provided. Things might get a little messy, so wear old clothes!

Suited for ages 8+, parent participation encouraged.

The workshop will be held indoors. All attendees over the age of 12 years will be required to wear a face mask.

Location: Huia Lodge Discovery Hub (next to the Cornwall Park Bistro)

Saturday 9th July
