Christmas is the time of giving. 

KAN is hosting a series of arts workshops for adults and kids, and you can make personalised gifts that are loaded with love.  KAN has worked with some of our favourite local artists to develop the workshops so that you will walk away with a unique and beautiful art piece. But you will also have the skills to keep making the items at home.  

Gifts are better when they’re handmade by you, and KAN has sustainability in mind. Many of the workshops get funky with sustainable materials, utilise upcycling and creative thinking, transforming ordinary objects into valued craft pieces.
