Gregory Quinn

Gregory's working life has consisted predominantly of orchard work, learning the care & craft associated with growing fruit. He continues to work with people on their Home Orchard Care. His craft practice has developed in the last three years to include green woodworking, a change from the orchard yet an extension of his working closely with trees. Gregory now makes greenwood furniture, rakes, pegs, food storage crates, brooms & other objects of use. The craft skills gained in working with experienced practitioners like Richard Hare, Alex Yerks & Juliet Arnott, combined with his own practice & exploration, have become an integral part of his life.

Gregory is currently a part-time resident in the Rekindle workshop funded by a Creative New Zealand Arts Grant. He can be found working in our Arts Centre workshop on most Wednesdays, and also teaches green woodworking skills within our Resourceful Skills workshop programme.  @homeorchardcare
