Shop Launch Party!

Shop Launch Party!
Friday July 1st
Bar Opens @ 5:00pm - 9:00pm
Event: 5:30pm - 8:30pm

Excitement has been building, and now, its here! The opening of our Shop! Join "Shop Fairy" Bec May and XO Preston as they introduce the latest platform for creative development at XCHC.

Occupying the beautful entrance space of XCHC, our "Lab" will be a fab new platform for Local Makers to test their inventions and creations, and connect them with the public before taking them to a larger marketplace. Makers can expose their wares not only to sell, but get valuable feedback and exposure so they can further develop a viable product and, most importantly, their creative growth! 

Think of this launch, "Makers and Merchants", as an evening of speed-dating where Christchurch creatives get to meet other creatives as-well as successful merchants to discover what makes each other tick- what drives your passion, what does success look like... and how can we support it in our community and support the cultivation of a creative ecology.

Dont forget to bring your favorite creation to the Makers & Merchants event and share its story and what drives you to create. Like an open mic for Christchurch inventors!

Interested in sharing and selling what you make and being a part of the growing XCHC scene, but cant make it to the event? Contact Bec at
