Flax Weaving Classes

1367 Tairua-Whitianga Road, Whenuakite

An introductory (half day) flax weaving class (raranga) includes: an in-sight into an amazing art form, including tikanga (guiding principles) , exposure to relevant kupu (Maaori terminology), identifying and harvesting techniques in a Paa harakeke (flax plantation), preparation and the weaving of a kete taatahi/koonae (general purpose bag/container), with a choice of 3 different styles,varied finishes.


The response from these roopu(classes) has been humbling. It is an honour to share with others.


I am offering and delivering Flax weaving workshops/classes 2-3 times a week.  I am tailoring them to suit the needs of the students (tauira).


Half day or full-day sessions available, no previous experience is required.  harakeke provided. Class size 3-6.
