For more than three decades Craig
Potton has documented the New
Zealand wilderness and many other
parts of the world.
Born in Nelson, Potton is an
executive member of the New Zea-
land Royal Forest & Bird Protection
Society. A noted photographer and
conservationist, he is actively
involved in conservation work and
his books are highly regarded.
He has worked as a location/stills
photographer on The Lord of the
Rings, Peter Pan and The Lion, The
Witch and The Wardrobe motion
pictures. His photographic repu-
tation continues to grow with recent
exhibitions at Christchurch Art Gal-
lery, National Gallery of Australia
in Canberra, as well as retrospec-
tive exhibitions in North Carolina,
Poland, Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem.
A good photo can sometimes be
an arrow to the heart of things,
alluding to or eliciting an immediate
encounter. It is the nature of art
and the way of nature to push us
beyond the narrow realities we often
become trapped in, to new or forgot-
ten realms of pleasure, says Potton,
Moment and Memory.
He has also filmed two
documentaries: Wild Coasts and
Rivers which have screened on
His publishing company produces
a wide range of New Zealand
material including many scenic

and natural value of rivers at

Halcombe community hall is being
put to good use on Mondays by a
group of women who meet to do
crafts and chat.
It s really a social group but it s
also a great way to learn new
crafts, Danelle Thomson from
None of the group who were spin-
ning and knitting in the hall kitchen
on May 28 live in Halcombe but
they call themselves the Halcome
Crafters with the explanation
there are no b s here .
One member travels from Danne-
virke to be part of the group, others
are from Mt Biggs, Bulls, Marton
and Mt Curl.
One of our past members came
from Whanganui, Lesley Allerby
And she still turns up occasion-
They said Halcombe community
hall was a central site for the group
to meet. The hall is comfortable
with a choice of room sizes to use,
depending on the number of
participants and the activities. May
28 was a dull winter s day and the
kitchen was cosy for eight or nine
people. It is also convenient for
cooking up dyes and other crafts
requiring running water or a cooker.
The crafters work mainly with
yarn, spinning, knitting, crocheting,
and dyeing, but they have indulged
in different crafts such as mosaics.
They describe the group as
hands on learning .
I can find a Youtube clip that
tells me how to do something, Ms
But it s not like having someone
show you how to do it.
But we come mainly for the com-
pany and the chat, said Mrs
Allerby, who was knitting baby
The contact for the Halcome Craf-
ters is Gwyneth Hanson
