Journey: the Kakapo of Christchurch
Journey – The Kakapo of Christchurch was a guerrilla kindness project for Christchurch, New Zealand.
From the 13-23 of March, I released 124 soft sculpture kakapo around the streets of Christchurch for people to find and move, hide, remove or adopt. Alongside this there was also free craft workshops from the Gap Filler’s Pallet Pavilion on the weekends where people sewed their own simple felt kakapo to take home or release on the streets as their own gifts of guerrilla kindness.

Sharing Ink was a guerrilla kindness work for Melbourne.
30 handsewn books were be given to 30 local writers and artists to inscribe with a lovely message to a stranger. From 1 – 10 August, 2013, these books were left out in various places around the Melbourne CBD as a gift to whoever finds them.
I’m working to make the world a nicer place, one hand crafted experience at a time.

Home – A One Minute Manifesto for the Battersea Arts Centre
The Battersea Arts Centre in London ran One Minute Manifesto, where you have one minute to say what’s on your mind. While I was performing my work Moment In Yarn at the Scratch Night weekend, I was lucky enough to see the spoken word poet Kate Tempest, I was inspired to write this piece, titled Home, on my experience of London and the BAC.
