way back in January (when this blog was first unleashed) i was teaching at the Kapiti Summer School, run by Whitireia Polytechnic. i'm delighted to say i'll be back again in 2009.

not only is Aotearoa one of my favourite places, the region around the summer school campus is blessed with an abundance of flora suitable for botanical alchemy in the dyepot. it's also blessed with beautiful rivers, beaches and woods - with a magical patch of original Nikau forest

and next year will be special indeed, with a day trip to Kapiti Island (pictured above)


  1. congrats! this is so beautiful. and with perks.

  2. I just found you over here. Where have I been?

  3. Okay, I'm crazy. I'm thinking this is a new blog. It's hot. It's real hot. My brain is boiled.

  4. not boiled, just gently simmered...and i mus admit i DID change the banner from 'wandering among flowers' to 'not all those who wander are lost'
    nice to hear from you again!

  5. Hello India, haven't stopped by in ages... some lovely textile snippets there...
    I remember making sort of sledges out of dry Nikau leaves that my siblings and I would pull each other about on, sliding on the dry grass... when I was younger and visiting relatives in NZ. :)
    Hope you are well

  6. I'm back. Just to look at the pictures. I'm not having a beach vacation this year. This is as close as I can get to it.
