Event description

Nestled in the heart of our community is a small charity making a big difference. Woven Earth NZ creates safe and beautiful spaces for families to rebuild their lives free from violence.

Behind Woven Earth is a story of true resilience. Founder Kerryn Trupp’s own journey is an inspiration. As a survivor of family violence herself, she understands first hand the overwhelming struggles of those her charity is helping.

Many women have to flee homes without money or possessions, and it’s one of the biggest barriers for them leaving violent relationships. Refuges have limited ability to provide these essentials and that’s where Woven Earth comes in. Liaising with the Refuge, the charity is an essential link in supporting women in their decision to leave, providing practical support and helping integrate them, and their children, into new and safe communities.

Volunteers gather high-quality furniture, beds, bedding, homewares and whiteware, setting up entire houses, making beds, stocking pantries and cupboards and turning soulless houses into warm and loving homes. 

On average, they’re helping 3-4 families a week set up new homes. Yet depressingly, demand for their services is higher than ever highlighting the importance of supporting this charity as a community. By donating and volunteering, we can assist Woven Earth to continue helping families to move forward with hope and dignity, changing lives one home at a time.

Objects in My Room is proud to be hosting an evening in the room on Thursday 18 May to benefit Woven Earth. Starting at 6pm, tickets include drinks and bites on arrival, Kerryn will share her story, followed by a live art and objects auction. 

Also on hand to chat and share on all things fashion, home and flower styling is resident roomies, Leaf and Honey’s Naomi, NZ’s vintage fashion guru and the face behind Welcome_Back Slow Fashion, Di Ludwig; Louise Mark Brown of budding local fashion label June and Kath from Objects in my room.

Woven Earth is always in need of new items to give out including everyday kitchen, laundry and bathroom products. There will be opportunities on the night to purchase any small items to donate into our Woven Earth donation baskets or alternatively feel free to bring along these types of first-hand goods to help the baskets overflow. We'll also have some raffles on the night, so make sure you bring some cash too.

We're super grateful to our amazing supporters and sponsors for their generous support. It truly takes a village, and we're so thankful to have such a wonderful community to rally behind this important cause.
