Our participants get hands-on guidance and support so they can create their necklaces and earrings. The CanBead Kits contain all that is needed to make beautiful jewellery. With this CanBead Kit and the skills learned in the workshop, participants can make fabulous jewellery on their own. In this way, CanBead Kits provide a pleasant distraction from illness and treatment, but also a chance for the user to gain a real sense of achievement and to spend creative, positive time with other people. Our Legacy Pendant Workshops involve running specific pendant or key-ring workshops where participants have the opportunity to make personalised gifts for their loved ones to remember them.
We currently work with host agencies in our regions- if you wish to know who we work with in your area please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We offer our workshops around the country. Currently, we have regional coordinators/tutors in Mid and South Canterbury, Christchurch, Wellington, Hawkes Bay, Southland, Tauranga and Dunedin With more regions opening yearly.
"I would like to thank the CanBead team for working together with CanTeen to put on a fabulous night for us, and in particular for the patience, ideas and bubbly personalities of the CanBead instructors while they were teaching us to make our jewellery items. It was a fantastic night which we all got something out of and where we all left with a beaming smile. The people, the laughs and the stories made it one of the best CanTeen girl’s nights yet." Libby Galbraith, Patient Member of CanTeen Christchurch
