2021 Workshops and funding

We are very excited this year to have a large amount of funding from Creative NZ which means we have been able to offer you double the number of workshops!

With everything from spoon carving to blacksmithing, foraging to natural building, woodworking to eco printing there will be at least one workshop that captures your imagination have a look through our listings to decide what you are going to do and then pre-book your tickets online.

We are doing things a little differently this year, you can buy your entry tickets and workshop tickets online at Eventfinda, booking early means you will not miss out on any workshops you want to do. The workshops are always very popular and we cannot guarantee there will be tickets available during the event.

The talks and full program schedule are being finalised and we will be sharing that with you very soon, either keep checking here on our website, on our Facebook page or our Facebook event page.

Online ticket sales end on Friday 16th at 1pm

A great big THANK YOU to all our funders and sponsors, we couldn’t do it without you!

Back in 2021!

The Living Wood Fair team has decided to take a break from hosting an event this year so we can concentrate on streamlining our organisation and systems. Creating a truly sustainable event – for our team and our planet – is absolutely imperative.

It is so important to look after our team, they put in many volunteer hours and we know in Golden Bay, as I’m sure in other places as well, many people suffer with volunteer fatigue. It really is the generous time that people give to a community that makes it a wonderful, vibrant place to live and visit, and we are lucky to have so many charitable people living here.

Liv Scott Fair Director

We will be back on the 17th and 18th April 2021 refreshed and revitalised to bring you all your Living Wood Fair favourites and so much more! Woody workshops, informative and inspiring talks, interactive forums, kids activities, a marvelous market, a mosaic of musical delights and many live demonstrations.

If you have something you would like to share through a workshop, a presentation or a demonstration at the 2021 event please get in touch.

We are always looking for volunteers and helpers so if you are interested in being involved send us an email: livingwoodfair@gmail.com.
