About this Event

This course will suit anyone with no knowledge (or a little) who are interested in learning how to weave using harakeke (flax) and traditional Maori tikanga (cultural values and practices). Students learn about different harakeke varieties, harvesting and preparation techniques for the leaves and how to make a variety of small kete and containers. Harakeke and necessary tools will be provided, however, you may wish to bring some of your own basic tools: scissors and a Stanley knife. Children aged 13yrs+ are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult. Brought to you by Rutherford College.

Booking required.
