Two Tuesday Mornings
My mahi sits predominantly in the social services/health sector. Engaging with a variety of communities. I enjoy working with materials that have been discarded, no longer wanted, detritus or any material that spikes my interest and is surplus to requirement. I start workshops with a whakataukī (this helps to anchor everyone into a session) I use both Te reo and English as this fits with my cultural kaupapa.
