Hedgehog Equipement - The rise and demise of my cottage industry
Published October 2019.

Before becoming a therapist and The Bowen Man of Malvern Tim Willcocks has had several ‘incarnations’! Hedgehog Equipment - for Spinning and Textile Supplies - was one of these, from 1974 for ten years.

Tim 1970's

In 2019 he was asked to write a piece for the Journal of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers about personal journey with Hedgehog and how the scene has changed over the past forty years.

The following story is the full, unexpurgated edition which records the story in full (6,000 words). The version appearing in the Journal is just one quarter of its length, so misses much information and many anecdotes.

On The Trail of the Waitaha
Tracing New Zealand’s Hidden Nation by TIM WILLCOCKS
Published July 22nd 2017.

Alkalife Drops

Set in New Zealand, this personal quest and documentary takes us into the heart of the land and the people, with adventures both mundane and esoteric.

“I had certainly not intended to get into a relationship, become so involved in therapy or end up tracing amazingly ancient roots in that land!”

Travelling by camper van to some wonderful places on tourist itineraries, as well as discovering a number of remarkable phenomena not on them, Tim Willcocks opens a window on the distant past of ‘Aotearoa’ and challenges an apparent amnesia about the rich, ancient history of the nation.

Approach this book with an open mind to appreciate fully the depth of a number of the incidents related which verge on the paranormal.

Tim’s inevitable conclusion is that it is very possible that the last 5,000 years of New Zealand’s history may have to be turned on its head!
