In December 2020, CHI opened its own shop called ‘Venture’ in Bargates, Christchurch. Venture is situated at the front of our new base and sells a range of items made by local makers, creatives and local education-based enterprise projects. The shop offers our students an opportunity to learn about high street retail and the day-to-day requirements of running a small outlet and understanding the different opportunities that creative enterprise and self-employment can offer. 

Are you a local artisan in search of a platform to showcase and sell your meticulously crafted goods, or are you simply on the hunt for a one-of-a-kind handmade gift? Look no further! Reach out to us today to learn more, or follow us on Instagram to catch a glimpse of our exquisite collection.
