Sugar Loafing Arts Cast 02-11-2019 Emerging Artist Stu Tullett Morris( 0:52:11)       
Episode Information
“(Art is) something that comes so naturally to me that I never question it -- like a lot of people wouldn’t question eating, or going for a walk. It’s something that’s just part of your life,” says artist and musician Stu Tullett Morris. His paintings deliberately entertain naivety, becoming psychedelic, character-filled fests of movement in oil pastel, house paint and other media. Our first in a series focusing on emerging artists in Taranaki.

Sugar Loafing Arts Cast 19-10-2019 Embroidery Playing the Long Game( 0:59:46)       
Episode Information
“In today’s world, with all the pressure that people have… we need to take a step back, and find something slow,” says embroiderer Maree Burnnand. That’s probably why a surprising number of young people -- boys and girls -- are taking up embroidery in 2019. Meanwhile, embroiderers like Maree break the mould. We caught up with some stitchers at the opening of the 'Stitched Treasures' exhibition at the Percy Thomson Gallery in Whakaahurangi / Stratford, and asked about their process, and their patience.

"This is our one shot. This is it.
