Aman, The Coffee Guy for Lower hutt
The Coffee Guy first popped the boot to deliver piping hot, delicious espresso direct to customers in June 2005. Since then, we’ve been keeping the coffee coming to people all over New Zealand. We provide coffee to commuters at our drive-thru locations, we deliver it to workplaces and we provide coffee at events.
The popularity of The Coffee Guy amongst coffee drinkers was matched only by the enthusiasm of keen Kiwis wanting to ditch their nine-to-five in search of a lifestyle change and a business opportunity that stacks up. Today, we have over 50 franchises from Kawakawa to Dunedin. Our low-investment low-risk franchise opportunity continues to be popular so we’re regularly establishing new franchises.
We sell hot beverages, non caffeine based drinks, pre packed Mrs Higgins cookies and Fudge.
Meet Liz from red glove style
I am Liz O'Brien and I have been an amateur artist for more than 20 years. I am now selling more of my work and I have moved into up-cycling items that interest me. I have recently completed Project Remade where I produced 50 items in 100 days as a challenge to myself. A number of these items have sold which gives me the challenge of continuing to offer original art and up-cycled items to people who are interested.
I am an artist, up-cycler and artisan. I produce original artwork on canvas and paper, and I source items from landfill and op-shops to remake. These items include small pieces of furniture and discarded bowls and boxes. I also make small quilts for small children and other fabric items such as bags. My ethic in remaking is to reuse, creatively, discarded items rather than lose their history and functions.
HANDMADE JEWELLERY BY Aggie + Au
I am Jenny, the designer and maker behind Aggie + Au. My passion is to create jewellery you'll treasure and wear every day. Jewellery can help us tell our unique stories and connect us with a time, place, person or feeling. I create each piece of jewellery by hand in my small Lower Hutt studio and am honoured that the pieces I craft become part of the stories of so many unique women.
I make handcrafted jewellery in sterling silver and 9ct gold. My pieces have a clean contemporary look and are designed for effortless beauty everyday!

INTRODUCING HELEN FROM Helen Bland Art
I paint original art with Acrylic paint onto stretched canvas. I love to use bright, vibrant colours and draw my inspiration from the beauty of nature and NZ landscapes.
I hand paint quality original art onto stretched canvas and have recently started to create some ready to frame prints and gift cards of my artwork. Commissions are also welcome! Thank you!
MEET KATHY FROM Creations by Katrose
I have always been the creative type of person and I enjoy exploring with different mediums.
In 2011 I was diagnosed with an aggressive metastatic cancer and told my chances were slim. I obviously survived this and am now in remission and as such I decided I no longer wanted to be stressed in a job I didn’t enjoy anymore. I realised life is really too short to put my dreams on hold. I quit my job and the financial security that came with it and took a big risk to study art in 2015 part time. I had hoped I would gain employment on the days off, so if you are looking for a creative person part time, let me know!
However for now, I am still a broke student without an income and any spare time I do have, I am exploring, experimenting and creating.
I enjoy exploring with different mediums such as textiles, painting, drawing, sculpture, and jewellery. I discovered I have a love/hate relationship with 2D and have found a challenge and passion in 3D. I also have an Accreditation as a Paverpol Instructor and now hold regular sculpting workshops.
At Wrought, I would like to introduce people to the wonderfully diverse array of art that can be made with Paverpol, offer sculptures for sale and to promote workshops for 2018. I will also bring along some of my unique jewellery pieces for sale.
Paverpol is a liquid polymer, textile hardener. It is weatherproof so the sculptures can go both indoors and out. Paverpol is versatile, highly durable, safe and non toxic. The use of Paverpol in your art and craft is only limited by your imagination. Caution – using Paverpol can be highly addictive!

Meet Meg from dora papers
I'm Meg, you may have seen me at markets, where I sell my paper works as Dora Papers. I've been manipulating paper in various ways for years now, and the endless possibilities of paper still fascinate and surprise me. I work from my home/studio in Eastbourne, surrounded by trees and piles of paper.
I love working with paper, and also the native birds and bush of Aotearoa NZ. You'll see both of those things reflected in my work. I sell marbled paper jewellery, decorations, stationary and craft supplies. Everything is designed and made by me, and usually involves a combination of marbling, quilling and papier-mâché.
