Harakeke - NZ Flax Basket Making/Te Kono - some previous Flax Weaving experience peferred
Weave your own 4 cornered basket using NZ Flax 'Kono' - This is a traditional maori woven basket used for holding food.
This one day workshop is a progression from the Introduction to NZ Flax Weaving workshops or you may have previously acquired some flax weaving skills, making this workshop a good opportunity to refresh your knowledge.
We will progress with the skills & techniques learnt in the Introduction to Flax Weaving workshop developing your prior learning to create a four cornered basked 'Te Kono". This workshop will include the practice of weaving and plaiting along with being taught the cultural practices of working within raranga tikanga (the protocols of flax cutting and handling which surrounds this time honoured craft.)
You are welcome to bring along shells, stones or beads to incorporate and personalise your basket/objects.
