Extra Curricular is going biannual



EC is put together by an incredibly dedicated and passionate team with each issue featuring up-and-coming artists and makers doing what they do for the love of it.

I started the magazine five years ago because I wanted to showcase all the talented creatives I knew and the beautiful work they were putting into the world. I wanted to tell other people about them by creating what I hoped would be a beautifully packaged journal of creativity.

That desire hasn’t changed. The network of contributors has grown and I’m more inspired than ever by all the new people appearing on the scene.

But to do justice to the people we feature, and to allow those who help put the magazine together enough space to tell their stories, I’ve come to realise that we need to put as much care and dedication into our pages as our subjects do into their own work.

So from next year Extra Curricular will become a twice-yearly magazine, down from its current circulation of three issues per year.

The extra time between issues will give us breathing room between issues, and ensure we’re presenting the magazine and who’s in it in the best light possible.

The new publishing schedule will be roughly six-monthly, with an issue due in November and May of each year.

Contributor series: Jacinta Crane


Jacinta Crane came to our rescue when we needed a photographer in Brisbane to shoot weaver extraordinaire, Maryann Talia Pau at the Finders Keepers markets for the Many Hands issue. (Take a look at some of the images we couldn't fit into the magazine below!)

Jacinta studied photography at the Brisbane College of Photography & Art where she then had her first photography job, leading to a passion for event photography – which she sees as a great opportunity to make connections and keep her finger on the creative pulse.


As well as photographing events, Jacinta also works with marketing and advertising companies and in her spare time she is currently doing a project with friends, setting up photo shoots at various locations and enjoying the creative freedom that comes with that.

Many Hands Make Light Work


In case you haven't heard, issue 15 is out! Taking its name from the classic proverb, the Many Hands issue celebrates collaboration in all its forms.

Featuring a gang of artists roaming Auckland's streets, a weaver whose project spans the world, a small Matakana bush cabin built by architectural graduates, and the must-have of any creative city – shared workshop spaces – the spring issue is fronted by dynamic cover duo Pete Cromer and Laura Blythman.

Take a look inside below, then grab yours from Felt or Big Cartel, or one of our lovely stockists to the right there –>

Contributor Series: Luzette Godinez


Luzette photographed by Jamie Bowering for issue 14
Luzette Godinez featured in issue 14 with her brand Luu, photographed by Jamie Bowering – and now we've convinced her to put together a tutorial for the new issue. Being familiar with her playful geometric style, she still managed to wow us with her amazing piƱatas (which you'll soon be able to make too!) 

A graphic designer by day, Luzette infuses her graphic, patterned work with natural elements. We recently visited her stall at the Auckland Art & Craft Fair and alongside her geometric jewellery pieces there were the Luu signature terrariums and air plant-growing pieces of driftwood – definitely one of the more unique displays on offer.

Keep an eye out in the upcoming issue 15 for Luzette's tutorial. (And if you are too lazy/craft-challenged/have a glue allergy, Luu does custom orders too!
