Day Workshops


  • Join Jane or Kelly for a creative day of your choice.

The Flying Fox is a place for inspiration. Take time out in this beautiful setting to allow your creative side to come to the fore.

Join Jane or Kelly for a workshop in Felting, Card Making, Bone Carving or Oamaru Stone Sculpture. Groups are kept small to ensure you have enough time for individual tuition and support as needed. Workshops can be run for day visitors or combined with accommodation (see package deals for details). So why not allow yourself to be inspired, perhaps learn something new and take home your own unique creation. All materials and tools are supplied.

Workshops can be arranged for groups of two or more on request. Please ask for more details.

Card Making

Are you fed up of not being able to find an appropriate greeting card at a reasonable price? Come and learn some simple techniques to create your own cards using easily available materials, taking home several usable examples.

Wet Felting

Learn the art of wet felting using New Zealand wool. Discover how to blend fibres to create a flat piece of fabric and use a resist to create bags, slippers and many other items.

Needle Felting

Alternatively explore the versatility of New Zealand wool and sculpt fibre using barbed needles. Create a brooch, small animals or figures, really you are only limited by your imagination.

Bone Carving

Create a taonga (treasure) for yourself or as a gift, using locally sourced beef bone. Both hand and power tools will be utilised to give a basic knowledge of the ancient art of bone carving.

Stone Carving

Using Oamaru stone, you can sculpt a piece to grace your home or garden in this workshop. Using easily available hand tools, you will only be limited by your imagination!
