    Description

    Share our home and help me in an Arts Centre on Waiheke Island
    We live in a beautiful place called Waiheke island
    which is well known for Art and Vineyards
    I am a Fashion Designer, Textile Artist and curator. I run an Arts Centre based in an Old Police Station
    Living with us is a hive of activity,
    If you are creative then this is a place for you. I mostly need asistance in my fashion studio and retail area.
    Jobs vary from tidying, cataloging, possible social media and admin assistance. there is the possibolity to make stuff
    We live close to the village and close to the beaches
    in your spare time you can enjoy bush and beach walks, or just relaxing. or enjoying some of the islands tourist attractions. Living on an island means we have restricted infrastructure regarding water and waste so we actively practice mindfulness in all that we do ensure our footprint on this earth is smalll and unthreatening
