Matakana Village, less than an hour north of Auckland, is well known for its Saturday Farmers Markets, its beaches and vineyards. Creative and innovative people live here – artists and musicians, artisan food producers and winemakers.

There are exceptional food and wine options, a wide range of vintage shops, boutiques and galleries, and a beautiful coastline with walks and regional parks to explore.

These assets have been woven into a 5-day programme of creative courses to be held in May each year, with shorter workshops also available. Participants learn from talented tutors, exchange ideas and techniques, meet people with diverse interests, and discover Matakana and its beautiful surroundings. Optional social events are scheduled too, including a welcome function, dinners and artist talks.

Class sizes are small, so register early for this wonderful week in Matakana.

Information will be posted on this website by January 2018, or as it becomes available.
