Teaching and  classes

I teach at Ruapehu College Ohakune. We have a wonderful site at the foot of the mountain. The mountain dominates the landscape, and is an important part of our lives physically and spiritually.

My classes during the day are in the area of Technology Textiles and Field Maori and until 2012 was  Food Technology and Food and Nutrition.  I enjoy working with young people, and enjoy learning from them too.

I have limited time to take classes outside this work but like to involve myself in adult teaching so that I can share skills and help others find creative outlets.

The classes I can take are as follows:

Patterns of Polynesia

Out of the Earth: mud painting

Creative textile techniques

Weaving a story

I am booked for Ballarat in July 2013 to teach a 5 day class called "Words Matter' and will repeat that in Masterton on return to NZ.
