Creative Workshops

The Flying Fox is a place for relaxation and inspiration. Take time out in this beautiful setting to allow your creative side to come to the fore.

Join Jane or Kelly for a workshop in Felting, Card Making, Bone Carving or Oamaru Stone Sculpture. Groups are small to ensure you have enough time for individual tuition and support as needed. This workshop package combines a hands-on day of creativity with comfortable overnight accommodation and full catering. So why not give yourself time to enjoy the experience of staying in one of our unique cottages, be inspired, perhaps learn something new and take home your own unique creation. All materials and tools are supplied and workshop packages can be arranged for groups of two or more on request. Packages include overnight accommodation, breakfast, a full day workshop with lunch and afternoon tea.
