Make bookings for this free event at: info@festa.org.nz

Members of the public are invited to sit on the ground (covered with eucalyptus leaves) by the crackling fire and enjoy a Native American inspired sauna, right in the heart of the city.

The pine wood-structured, canvas-covered dome and pot-belly stove provide a unique space within an urban context.

The Nomadic Sauna is a portable sauna that can be easily put together and dismantled to sit on different sites. This piece of transitional architecture is best experienced from the inside, where the pot-belly fire gently glows and creates a dimly-lit atmosphere – one that offers a new social experience of downtown Christchurch.

The Nomadic Sauna is assembled on the first day of the festival and for three nights will host four 45-minute sauna sessions between 7 – 11pm, which start on the hour. Please book in advance. There is a space for changing and on-site bath as well.

Be confident with your belly, dress comfortably and come join us. The site for this project was brokered by Life in Vacant Spaces
