CanBead Workshop Volunteer

We collaborate with host agencies whose clients are experiencing illness, trauma, or loss, and those that support them, through the provision of our CanBead creative therapy workshops.

The Workshop Volunteer will assist with delivering workshops, under the direction of the CanBead Tutor and in conjunction with other workshop volunteers and host agency staff. This may include teaching jewellery-making skills, supervising or assisting clients, and ensuring a hospitable environment at the workshop (e.g. talking to clients, distributing name tags, serving hot beverages) as required.

Make a difference in the lives of people going through a difficult time.


This role would suit someone who is:

  • Passionate about creativity and the benefits it has for people experiencing illness, trauma or loss
  • Punctual and reliable
  • Considerate and understanding of people experiencing illness, trauma or loss
  • Friendly, caring and respectful
  • Has jewellery-making experience (not essential)

You will be required to complete a Police Check as you will be working with vulnerable individuals, as well as sign a Code of Conduct as part of your orientation.

A Police background check is required for this role.

Time commitment

Workshops are usually two hours long, plus you will be required to help set-up and pack-down, which takes half an hour on either side.

We deliver 32 workshops a year across Southland: approximately three per month. These are usually held late morning or early afternoon on a weekday, with the occasional Saturday. Upcoming dates are circulated monthly, and you can confirm your availability for specific workshops with the CanBead Tutor assigned to teach them.
