About this project

Rekindle creates opportunities for resourcefulness by teaching skills and providing workshops from wood-working to weaving. Resourceful Ōtautahi began as the Zero Waste Village launched at FESTA 2016.

In 2011 Rekindle was born and has since run various projects inherently focused on resourcefulness; some even as epic as reusing a whole house! They are currently providing workshops in 2017, if you’d like to attend please sign up here.
