I have just joined the Pollok Arts Co-op which is a small gallery selling art and craft on the Awhitu Peninsula south of Auckland on the Manukau Heads. There are six members and we sell our own and other artists work. Yay to be art focused again after a year and a half of 60hour weeks working for the machine. For the time being I am blissfully living in paradise.

Pollok Co-op


  1. That explains your long absence from blogging?

    1. Yes- May the reasons and sense of purpose surrounding our hand-made heritage not be lost all together to the machine.

  2. Follow your heart.
    (Sorry I didn't catch up with you at Festival.)

    1. Hi Dianne, it was a whistle stop for me as I had to work at the gallery Sunday morning via visiting my daughter in Whitianga Saturday, as she is having a baby in June and I had not seen her since she shared the news months ago!!! Madness year or so.

      Your piece hanging up in the foyer looked STUNNING up there.


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.
