Pony McTate and our amazing Birthday cake!
Posted on Friday 23 June, 2023
We were lucky enough to have one of our members, Pony McTate, create an amazing one of a kind crocheted 40th Birthday Cake to help us celebrate.
The cake will be making its way around the country to our 40 good deeds events, the Awards night in Christchurch and more.
Members of the Institute are eclectic, talented, interesting and creative – they don’t all fit into the same box but come from a range of background. Pony is a great example of this and we wanted to delve a little deeper into what she does and her connection with the Institute.
Pony McTate is, as her email signature states, fabulous. She’s a former lawyer, professional craft extraordinaire, recent architectural design graduate and Institute of Building Award winner.
We chatted to Pony about her eclectic career journey, creativity and of course crochet.
