Description Clive was part of the wood carving school’s first intake in 1967. Arguably one of the most accomplished technical carvers alive, he is still at NZMACI today. “If we lose our arts and crafts, we lose our identity,” explains Clive. Clive is optimistic about the future and happy that, thanks to places like NZMACI.
“It’s important that we pass on our art to future generations, to show our unique art form worldwide. Our art and culture will never die out.”
