kind-ling: (v.)

1. the process of creating the spark; 2. the playful child in us all; 3. building something that is uniquely ‘you’

At Kindling Creative we believe that children have a right to play, leisure and recreational space (Article 31 HRCRC).

We believe being creative helps us to maintain our wellbeing, express who we are and connect us to our world and to each other.

We provoke creative conversations and actions, providing quality resources and inclusive spaces to create.

Art, play and making are the drivers for engagement.

Kindling Creative has brought us out of the confines of the office and into dynamic, vibrant spaces. It's here you'll find us: sweaty, busy, messy and in the middle of playing, creating and making!


How we work...

Time to create is not something you can shortcut. We provide as much time as possible, with sessions being a minimum 1.5 hours in duration.

Keeping some space for creating is precious. We provide creative spaces for all ages and all abilities.

We work sustainably with what is available to us. We use found objects, recycled and pre-loved materials, together with high-quality arts materials.


Our consulting rates start at $75 per hour.

Scheduled sessions and customised workshop or events rates vary.
