Whether it’s how to cook a meal on a budget, to build a backyard oven, or paint with watercolour, make jam or keep chooks. These are all skills that help make our communities more resourceful and sustainable, and also ways to spend time that invite focus, inspiration, creativity and an unplug from relentless busy-ness of modern life.
Founders Caitlin Marshall and Lizzie Rose have created a model that is for everyone. Where through fun skillshare classes, unique playful events, workplace experiences and boutique retreats, people from all walks of life are warmly invited to reconnect with the power of play, for learning, for building community, or just, for fun.
In five years, the enterprise has supported over 1000 community members to share and teach their skills to others. Over 10000 community members have learnt new skills.
From humble beginnings programming skill-share classes, Rumpus now works in multiple ways and places to promote 'purposeful play' as a vital tool for mentally healthy communities and workplaces.
