The Tannery in Woolston has proven attractive for many small, specialised and elegant shops. It is a beautiful space that most of the tenants appreciate. However, for many of the tenants, their tenancy is the end of a long battle to find new premises after losing their original businesses in the earthquakes. Magma, run by Barbara Simsch and her husband is one of these. The couple lost their gallery in Lyttlton in the earthquakes and faced with a changed situation, have retrained in order to be able to also offer framing services along with a selection of art works, limited prints, sculptures and jewellry.
