Riverside’s Education Programme runs throughout the year in and around Riverside Community/Lower Moutere and consists of a variety of affordable indoor/outdoor workshops and learning opportunities for young and old. The workshops are facilitated by volunteering members of Riverside Community (and the trust board) and outside tutors from the public who wish to offer their skills and expertise for the benefit of all. The trust board is also increasingly engaging with other charitable organisations in our region to offer a more varied and richer workshop programme.

Riverside Community Trust Board offers sponsorships for anyone struggling to meet the costs of workshops. Riverside Trust seeks to empower everyone in their learning journeys, irrespective of their financial positions, and lack of money should not stand in the way of workshop participation! Please simply contact us on the email below.

Please book your workshop spot online or contact us for any questions by emailing education@riverside.org.nz  or filling out the form below.

 

View our current and previous workshops on the Happenings Page. For further information on running your own workshop as part of the Riverside Education Programme, please have a look here.
