We are Ellen and Alan Hodgetts. Based on the Kapiti Coast is our lakeside art and music studio. At SweetArts Studios there is always a new creative project on the go, whether a new art technique is being explored, or a new song is being written and rehearsed. We don't constrain ourselves to particular materials, techniques or genres, but enter into the creative world with open minds and hearts. Our current practice reflects our social conscience and desire to develop sustainable and eco friendly art practices. Ellen is learning eco print techniques, using our garden’s abundance of plants and leaves and the range presented in our Felt Shop include NZ fine merino, 100% silk and wool blend or merino felt.
