A Far Away Spindleworks

Spindleworks

The following travel reflection was offered by John Boylston, dedicated art supporter and father of our talented Caroline.

For the month of February this year Caroline attended an art program in Invercargill, New Zealand, about as far South on the South Island as you can go. It takes 5 plane trips and about 21 hours of flying to get to there. It is her third time there and as New Zealand seasons are 6 months out of phase with ours, their February is similar to our August.

The program there is called CS Arts and has 40 clients, much the same number as Spindleworks, however as they only have one small room, which is used by other programs, they run their program differently. There are only 3 days the program operates (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday) with 2 sessions each day (a morning and afternoon session).
