The fabric is a lovely strong, soft, printed swimwear fabric. Chlorine resistant, it also has 50+UV protection. There are even custom variations available on this design, such as attaching the straps to the back of the suit for more bust support or making the leg pieces longer! Annemiek is happy to discuss options with you.

Woodworking workshop in the Bay of Plenty

Monday, August 14th, 2017

Heads up Bay of Plenty makers! Here’s your chance to develop your green woodworking skills in a fantastic weekend workshop.

During the weekend of 16/17 September 2017 experienced craftsman Richard Lees will tutor a greenwood course in whittling, pole-lathing, branch furniture jigs, shave horse and draw-knife, and carving techniques.

The workshop will take place at a beautiful site in the Lower Kaimais, Bay of Plenty. Come and experience the greenspace and birdsong, walk barefoot in the grass, and learn some amazing traditional skills.

Woodworking spaces are very limited to a maximum of eight woodworking participants, but non-woodworkers are most welcome to join the camp and enjoy the space. Find out more.

StickyTiki reusable wall decals are made from fabric so they wont rip, wrinkle or damage your space. They adhere to any smooth surface and can be repositioned and moved many times. They’re weatherproof, so they can go outdoors, and they’re also washable so those sticky little fingermarks can be easily wiped off. You can move and rearrange them countless times, take them with you when you move, tell stories with the kids or create a new look everyday – it’s truly unlimited!
