The Auaha Creatorspace is a 'low tech, high mess', community space that provides access to creative tools, expertise and experience. It is an inclusive and collaborative space where self-directed creative play and creative workshops are held by local artists and experts.

We invite you come and immerse yourselves in the creative process, to explore hands-on mediums, or create designs to be digitally relocated, 3D printed or laser cut in the high-tech Auaha Makerspace next door.

The Auaha Creatorspace also has studio space available for 3-month residences and we love to host creative groups and local artist workshops.
