Can you fix broken ceramics?

Posted by Ross Stewart on

We've been around for 30 odd years so we know what we're doing.

Who is the local kiwi repair shop?

Posted by Ross Stewart on

Fixing Aucklanders’ precious items is a passion for the team at Wrightway Studios in Glen Innes.

Wrightway Studios is a Tāmaki institution. For more than 25 years, the art restorers operated out of a factory in Morrin Rd, Panmure before moving to a more modern building on Taniwha St, Glen Innes five years ago.

Studio manager Corene Higgins says the company’s talented team can fix paintings, prints, watches, ceramics, photos, model boats and dolls, as part of Wrightway’s Auckland Doll’s Hospital.
