Whanau ō Toi Iho, keep safe and well during this coronavirus lockdown.

Kia ora koutou Toi Iho Whanau

Following PM Jacinda’s announcement this afternoon, we will all be withdrawing and isolating ourselves with our loved ones at home. Alert Level 4 starts on Thursday. While it will be difficult for many of you who are in business, considered at this time as ‘non-essential’, and you work hard making and selling most beautiful art, isolation is the only way that this invisible frightening virus can be arrested and lives saved. The mantra that ‘we’re all in this together’ is perfect. Take care.
