About Us

We run creative workshops and courses from our home in the picturesque village of Arapuni, here in the middle of the Waikato. Courses take place on our section with splendid views of nearby Maungatautari Mountain.

Mandy has a BA (with honors) Degree in Applied Art which she obtained from Wolverhampton University in the UK and is a prolific artisan. She creates all manner of objets d'art in her workshop including jewellery, glass and Steampunk-inspired art.
In the coming months Mandy will be running kid's craft and jewellery classes in the school holidays. Her dream is to own her own glass kiln to enable her to make glass art which she can then teach others to do.
