The latest CAN News!

Come along this Friday, 22 January 5-7pm for our first opening celebration of the year! 

And it promises to be a good one… scroll down for more info…

Yaniv is a young artist whose goal is to encourage others to take action toward environmental sustainability. His work centres on his great passion for environmental and social issues and this is reflected in his art works. He has shown his work in over 35 solo exhibitions and installations, in New Zealand and internationally, including in Canada, Montenegro, Paris, and at the Headquarters of the United Nations in New York City.

Living with both epilepsy and autism, Yaniv does not let either dictate who he is. Instead he uses this to encourage and inspire others living with disabilities to know that they have the ability to achieve anything they set their mind to. For more information visit and

You’re welcome to join Yaniv to celebrate the opening of his exhibition on Friday 22 January, 5-7pm. Light refreshments will be served and all are very welcome to attend; bring some friends and make a night of it! 

Are you looking for an easy evening class, where you can be creative, explore, and carry on at home after the course has finished? Then SCREEN PRINTING may be for you!

Learn to print simple designs onto fabric and paper or card which you can use for a million different projects. Personalise clothing, bags or homewares or make limited edition prints to frame. The options are endless and can be made on your kitchen table.

Be like Mel here, who printed this fabric and made a stunning dress from it!

Our CAN evening class starts on Thursday 11 February and runs for 6 weeks. It’s ideal for beginners and it’s FUN! Check out this link for more info: or email
