There is an initiative to build a new theatre in Christchurch ... RED THEATRE
The great thing about this new theatre is that it
will run along the same principles as Bats in Wellington, making it so much easier for people to put theatre on in this city, and offering heaps of support at very low cost.
Much funding has been secured and building will soon begin in the location in Ash street (near the
Red Theatre is looking for small donations from
supportive people in its community - you can buy a brick for $50, $100, $175 or $250. This is a one off donation that would really help at this stage of development - and you get your name on a brick in the foyer of the theatre!

Flax weaving Workshops with Ali Brown
Three places are available in the next flax weaving workshop on Saturday 18 October and seven for the workshop on 22 November (the last for this year).
In this workshop beginners can learn how to weave a small basket, or kete, some flowers, or a larger container. Some people find they have time to make both. If you've woven before, you could learn some new weaving skills - learn different ways of starting or finishing a kete, including starting a kete with a plait or weave a square box with a lid. If you'd like to do some dyeing, let me know and I'll bring the equipment and some dye.
If you haven't visited http://www.alibrown.co.nz/blog/ my blog yet, do take the time to check it out. You're sure to find something to interest you there!
