Ruru is the Maori name for a NZ native owl, also known as a Morepork. Mandy has more designs she is developing featuring more native birds.
In the studio the ladies have been working on some original Christmas advent calenders that have personalised photos of their families. Its been a really great project, and a lot of work. I will try to remember to post some photos of the calenders soon. We get so busy during class time that I never take photos!
