Art Camp NZ 2020 is a safe and inclusive space. ANYONE over the age of 18 is warmly welcomed to attend Art Camp. Camp Wainui is fully wheelchair accessible and if you require any other accommodations please contact us. We are SO excited to meet you!
Sleeping arrangements are shared, however we will *try* to make sure each person will have an entire bunk to themselves so you don't have to fight anyone for the top bunk. It all depends on how many campers are attending! Art Camp is all about getting out of your comfort zone and embracing adventures and you will actually spend very little time in your room - our timetable is pretty packed! If you are coming with a mate or 3 and want to share a room or adjoining rooms please let us know and we will of course make it happen.
Our campers are going to be very well fed with all food and drinks provided. Rachel from Sweet and Savage is coming all the way from Christchurch to create her own signature brand of mouth watering food for us all. Expect breathtaking breakfasts, luscious lunches, delectable dinners and scrumptious snacks. If you have any dietary requirements just let us know so Rachel can accomodate you!
There is plenty of free on site parking at Camp Wainui. We'll be waiting outside to welcome you and direct you to the parking areas.
We recommend packing for all kinds of weather. During the weekend you will want to wear comfy clothes that you can get creative in and still feel fantastic. Remember you will be doing some messy activities, some yoga, a bit of walking etc. Please bring your own pillow! Once you book your ticket we will also send you an "Art Camp" Guide with a "To Pack" list to help you :)
Most of our workshops are suitable to be held inside so even if it's raining we can all snuggle up indoors and get our craft on - yay!
Obviously we'd love for you to be at Art Camp for the whole weekend but we completely understand that sometimes things come up - no problemo! We aren't able to offer discounted tickets for only one night but please let us know if you're going to miss any sessions.
We're going to let you into a little secret - lots of artists and designers CAN'T DRAW. Yup, it's true. At Art Camp we're going to take you through our step-by-step design process that is completely fool proof. You're going to be amazed at the amount of awesome designs you'll be churning out by the end of the weekend!
Our wonderful Art Camp Head Chef, Rachel Savage can cater to any food allergies or intolerances you may have. After you have booked your spot we'll send you a form to fill in so you can give us all the relevant info to make your meals perfecto!
Ugh, we totally get it. It can be completely intimidating to rock up to a weekend with a bunch of total strangers. The good news is - we are SO excited to meet you and hang out with you. All of our welcoming activities are designed for us to relax and get to know each other - we are going to be besties in no time! Also, most of our campers are going to be solo so you are bound to meet some crafty soulmates - we're so excited!
Art Camp NZ officially begins at 6pm on Friday the 21st of February! We'll be kicking off Art Camp NZ with welcome cocktails and delicious snacks from Sweet & Savage. We understand that some campers will be rocking up after 6pm so don't worry if you're late, there will be plenty of drinks and food waiting for you whenever you arrive!
In the very unlikely event that we don't get enough campers then you will receive a full refund and a voucher to attend a future Home-Work workshop. We promise to give you at least two weeks notice!
If you are unable to attend the weekend you are welcome to send a friend in your place - please let us know as soon as possible! We are not able to offer refunds.
Stay tuned - we have big plans to take Art Camp across the globe! If you'd like us to come to a place near you then get in touch and we'll try to make something happen asap!
