I have changed from a bricks and mortar shop to a mobile service with a website during Rahui.
This is a physical move, a 100% stock take and the working out how to communicate tens of thousands of stock lines. It's a big job.
Where the website doesn't help you yet I will.
I am Carla Woollaston, a Manawatu creative agent who provides Art Supplies, Process Development, Art Works, & Workshops for personal, community and commercial creativity. phone 027 283 7662, or Read more....

On 3 April 2019 we started work to build an art supplies service to support creatives and their art story.
We are working hard to respond to the changing needs of artists during Rahui & beyond.
A long love of reductive sculpting has lead to sharing this work with novice and experienced sculptors.
Sculptures, commissions and Oamaru stone sales continue.
We look forward to workshops and night classes returning in alert 2 & 1 times.
What more could I want than to make recycled fabric, freestyle garments sewn in rural Manawatu.
Jarma Bums has been a folly of mine that I truly wish to indulge during Rahui
Creatives need Flash Retail
I love to help other creatives bring their work to an art adoring public!
Keep an eye on us for events and pop-ups.
And, of course I already have some treasures for you
Busting to play with mud has finally worked out to have a space and the tools to live the dream.
Just waiting for the kiln repair guy to get me firing again.
More updates soon!
Glass and tile continue to fascinate me.
The way these materials can be used to tell a story and how the reveal pops has always kept my creative attention.
Hoarding bright shiny things shows us that the magpie in my spirit is strong
Here a passion for recycling shows again. With an 'in' to the window industry we try to keep timbers from going to landfill.
Keep an eye on our projects that use reclaimed timber and also upcycled joinery.
Raised in a family where Dad fed us from the vege gardening and Mum was sought after for her landscaping prowess, I couldn't help but love plants.
I love succulents & houseplants, and have a bit of a homesteader's bent that may lead to self sufficiency one day.

Creativity gives us freedom!
In the same way that confidence gives us freedom, I think creativity makes us able to cause change in our lives. The practice of a creative process primes our world view to openness. In this openness we are more able to strike upon solutions.
Creativity is kin to Ecology!
In the same way that frugality sits opposite to waste, I see a creative response as a way to lessen our footprint on our ecology. Where we can engage creativity to meet our recreation and functional needs we have a real opportunity to design and take responsibility for how our actions impact the world around us.
Creativity changes people & it is people who change the world.
The next best time is right now.
Don’t put off your own creative response any longer!
