Fibre and Woodwork Artists

(in alphabetical order by surname)


Donna Hansby
- Thames Artist

"Our Port Charles Bach sitting above the rocky shoreline is surrounded by Nikau.

We fish off the wharf, the rocks and from the boat always in the company of gulls, shags and other seabirds.

A place where I can be still and enjoy creating work from what I see and do."

Owen Marsh
- Ngatea Artist


"I’m a semi retired tradesman who has developed an interest in wood work over the last 10 to 15 years.

I’ve made bespoke furniture in the past, mostly tables but am currently keen on making laminated breadboards of different shapes, made with contrasting pieces of both native and exotic timber."

Alan Jones
- Thames Artist

"My interest in pottery started with mastering the wheel but over the years I became more interested in developing forms and shapes, building and sculpturing by hand. 

My wood turning skills also allow me to incorporate recycled native timbers into my art."
