New workshop hours

Hi folks, four of our seasoned Tumeke staff are changing life course, leaving Auckland and even New Zealand.  So we need to reduce our workshop hours until we find replacements, crossing out Wednesdays starting December.  That will bring our new hours to Thursdays 17:30–19:30 and Sundays 13:00–15:00.

See you then. And if you want to volunteer, inquire within!
