Ventana' is a Spanish word meaning window. Ventana provides a window to the world, offering small-business artisan lifestyle and homeware items that you might not ordinarily see while out shopping in the Wairarapa. Items are carefully curated from a network of artists and designers working both locally and overseas.
Ventana has selected items that are unique and that spark inspiration and joy and that they hope will enhance your general day-to-day well-being.
In addition to the shop's offerings, Ventana Creative Collective (VCC) is providing the local community and visitors with art & craft workshops, regular art gallery shows, acoustic musical performances and custom group events (birthday parties, hens celebrations, life drawing, etc).
Founder Auriga Martin has a dream of providing the community with a creative hub where people can come together, be inspired by art and each other and learn and develop new skills. Ventana was created from a desire to spark creativity in our community and since opening, has been very successful in doing just that.
