Schedule and offer revealing in July 2024

Pop-up Retail

State Highway One is an exciting place to show your brand. Embrace the trend of flash retails with an @thePoP booking. Marketing, POS and attendance options available.

I am looking to support locally made, social change, reclaim/recycle and ecological styles of products to profile.

ArtPath

Sessions for creatives to look at our practice and design ways to scale our work. I encourage and coach the Creatives to encourage and coach you. My system to support skill sharing has the grooviest side effect - that is Creative Workshops.

...& Coffee

Coffee refreshes the journey, whether it is a creative journey or litterally a road trip.

Combine this with innovative beverages and local feature snacks.

Opening in a bricks & mortar shop in

Bulls, Rangitikei, NZ

Exhibiting with me

I am looking for artists and artisans to show your work in my state highway one shop. There are options for regular stock lines, pop ups, markets or a 7 week exhibition. 

Exhibitions open at 7.07 on the 7th of each month, and run for 7 weeks. This means your work that is unsold after your first month is present for the opening of the following exhibition. Getting your work one and a half openings for the price of one.

Please reach out and start the conversation.


Art Path

Free workshops for artists to flesh out what, how, and where to offer your creative skills to students/guests. Taking part in offering creative experiences can be seriously satisfying. When you have your tees crossed and your jays dotted, your confidence and effectiveness grow.

Art Path is an open-source programme. You are invited to repeat what I offer to other people too.

Use your session prep in my workshop studio, or other venues. Either way you are adding to the creative fibre of our communities.

Creative learning is a practise that improves mental wellness, strengthens identity, and adds to resilience. When we work to offer these types of opportunities we are lifting the wellbeing of people around us.

Workshops

My brain is a buzz with creativity that I want to experience and share. The Bulls store has a groovy space for workshops. Brain + space = opportunity! Let's do it.

Workshops are able to be customised.

I will lead some workshops and I'll support guest tutors too. Contact me if you have workshops you wish to offer.

  • My place or yours? The shop toilet isn't mobility accessable, so to look after anyone that needs better facilities we can book elsewhere.
  • Big group or small, let's go ahead.
  • Dabble sessions are loose workshops that you can do anytime in the shop while I'm still open (keep an eye out for the dabble menu coming soon).
  • Drop in sessions, will suit those who want a regular creative experience that allows experimenting with a variety or different mediums.
  • Geneology Addicts, time out for research & taking time to bring images to digital storage, editing and presentation.

Art Supplies

I am working to to keep you connected with the tools & materials that connect you to your creativity.

I am local and I value shop quality service. Please feel encouraged to phone, email or even messenger for a chat about what you are looking for or thinking about. Sometimes it is in that chat that the gold is found.

It is a gritty old time getting a new format going after these recent years, so I want to say how deeply I appreciate our customers. You are why I am here.
