Hōhepa Canterbury is a disability support and service provider offering diverse living options, learning & activity programmes, community participation, and therapies – all inspired by anthroposophy. LEAP is the activity programme that many people we support, providing a range of activities such as karate, swimming and hiking. We have an exciting opportunity for some of the people we support to attend the Toi Whakairo programme with Whakaraupō Carving Centre.
They are offering the opportunity to complete a 12 week kaupapa mā¬ori course with a focus on toi whakairo (carving). This will be taught by 2 kaiako at the Whakaraupō Carving Centre in Lyttleton and is a great opportunity to experience something new, learn skills and connect to the mahi done by Whakaraupō Carving Centre and the impact that has had for the Hōhepa community but also the wider Ōtautahi community.
The person we support just needs a bit of extra support with NZSL to understand the instructor. A basic level would be enough to be some help, as he is not fluent in sign language himself.
Starts Thursday February 2nd and is weekly from 10am until 12pm, based in Lyttelton.
