My projects are all to do with the conservation and safeguarding of traditional crafts of this land.
I look for old people to learn from and than for younger people who want to learn.
When possible - I organize workshops to enable direct transfer of knowledge and also to allow the learning of the craft to stay within it's original cultural context.
The Intercultural meetings in these workshops are very real, and many times very moving, as they bring together people that otherwise would not meet. When the hands are busy - the hearts open.
