small workshop

A small workshop for free creation, open to all who wish to use it.

Having interests, curiosities, and good feelings are the main energy of urban regeneration.

The city offers an incredible variety of learning labs

Our education will be left to volunteers, beginning with ourselves!


small workshop is a mixture of workshops, often together, by Xin and Chris.

While based in Auckland suburbs, we have the resources of the Super City at our doorstep, harbours, beaches, mountains and rivers in our backyard, and diverse collaborators throughout the country and around the world.
