Ahhh.... The beautiful Coromandel. What better place to have gathered up the kids and moved to.
With quartz crystals in the foothills towering over you and the sea surrounding you, always in the background, where ever you go.

If you have never been to Coromandel it is one of the most beautiful places north of Taupo to visit. Take an adventure up the Thames Coast road to visit a community packed to the rafters with fellow artisans. Check out the Annual Arts Trail if you can, which runs Fri-Sun over 4 consecutive weekends during late summer. Participating artists have their studios open, and it is a fantastic way for children to see and learn about art in the making.

Tapestry Weavings By Stephenie Collin


I hope you find Warped Art & Design both interesting and inspiring, and that it will encourage anyone working with fibre to investigate and experiment further within their chosen field.

The basic loom, which is my tool of trade, has remained technologically unchanged. This aspect appeals to me as I weave contemporary images on a machine of such simple and ancient construction.

And if the loom be silenced,
then needles, threads and fingers
have plenty more to say.
