FORAGED. HANDCRAFTED. LOCAL. Woodland Finds is an amalgam of passions - love for the forest and its treasures, and the joy of creating. All the plant materials - from the acorn caps to the wand woods - are handpicked from the forest floor, or foraged from various green spaces all over Auckland, New Zealand! These foraged flora are thoughtfully paired with the handpicked raw crystals and minerals, or glass beads, to become something quite unique. Each handcrafted piece is created with a lot of care and patience, and with the hope that they be a tangible reminder of the beautiful green spaces that still exist around us. More
Hi, My name is Bea. I am from the southern end of Auckland (NZ), known as Papakura. I am currently still in school but will be graduating at the end of the year. Growing up, I have been inspired by the beautiful country I live in and the people that surround me. I have always been passionate about the great outdoors, channelling this love through visiting the surf and painting. I never planned to start making cakes. It freakishly happened one rainy Saturday in 2016. I can blame it on the new generation and modern technology which made it too easy to set up a hobby that I have developed to this day. Every cake I make is made with love, passion and a little creativity. I believe in the small things in life so every time a cake is made in my mothers kitchen (I owe you everything!), it is inspired by these small beautiful things. Anyway, I'm sure you've heard enough by now! In the next few years I am planning to continue this website as my creative outlet and regularly update my blog! I love getting in... More

Niche Textile Studio
Christine Brimer is the incredible artisan behind Niche Textile Studio. The picture below shows her loom - the tool she uses to carefully and lovingly create each product. What inspired you to start? In each of my vocations, I have always looked for opportunities to solve problems. At 48 I took the plunge to learn the technical and rigorous critical thinking skills of design. Studying Textile Design at Massey University’s College of Creative Arts helped me learn to make meaningful work that resonates with others while addressing concerns for sustainability. New Zealand wool is an incredible fibre for interiors. Using undyed wool in my practice reduces energy and water requirements in yarn processing, and the soft and warm hues sit beautifully alongside flowers and foliage, art, and contemporary interior materials including timber, steel, concrete, brick and clay. Describe your creative space. I am lucky to have a dedicated work space with a view over Lyall Bay, Wellington. My 2 looms take... More

Little Paper Hugs
At Little Paper Hugs our aim is to contribute to the excitement and delight of giving and receiving thoughtfully designed prints. With the added pleasure of decorating your home with awesome art. We're a husband and wife team who started Little Paper Hugs in 2017. The idea came from the fact that we're living away from family and friends and only ever communicate via technology. So we decided we wanted to bring back the thrill of finding a card, letter or gift in the mailbox that says someone is thinking of you.
Lil & Mift
Lil & Mift is a small home based candle business in Auckland, New Zealand. 'Our products are all lovingly handpoured using a premium soy wax, soy wax dye with high quality fragrance oil. We like to use soy wax as it has a cleaner burn, it releases no toxins into our breathing space! It also has a much longer burning time than regular wax-almost double the time-extra bonus. We use wooden wicks as it not only looks awesome but also ties in the natural feel we wish to create and gently crackles when lit.' Joanne McAleer More
The Kubb Brothers, Sam, George and Freddie are the talented artisans behind New Zealand's premium handcrafted Kubb Sets ,made in Hawke's Bay. What inspired you to start? A few years ago in Europe, Kubb Brother #1 discovered the little-known largely-loved Swedish game kubb. When he returned to Hawke's Bay for Christmas, Kubb Brothers #2 and #3 helped him make a kubb set in our dad's workshop. One game and we were instantly hooked. We then (out of curiousity) looked online for a premium kubb set in NZ, it didn't exist, so we figured we should be the ones to make that happen. Describe your creative space. The "kubb shed" as it's colloquially known, is a large, warm, dry woodshed with large garage doors opening out into the Tukituki Valley, it's a great place to work. We have every woodworking tool you could imagine in there, so there's no excuse for not getting the work done. When we're not in the shed, we're constantly sharing images and ideas on our Kubb Brothers Whatsapp group "Kubb... More
Karen Zheng is an Auckland based designer and jeweller. All pendants, rings and bracelets are handmade in Auckland at home and in her studio. Pieces are made by the loss wax method. First a wax carving is made and then cast in either silver, white bronze, brass or copper. With a background in fine art, her venture into jewellery, though self taught, was a natural progression. Because each piece is hand made, please allow for slight differences in each piece.
