Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Monday 15th–Sunday 28th October 2012
Learn to harvest, prepare and weave using harakeke (flax). We present Māori women keen to preserve and promote the art of raranga in the traditional Māori style. You have a rare opportunity to share in this experience.
Call in at the studio to purchase quality local weaving. For workshops on putiputi (flowers) or kono, konae, konoroa (small baskets) contact Missy 022-161-9762 (15 – 21 Oct) or Emma 022-011-7756 (22 – 28 Oct). Ask about the giant tukutuku panel and how you can assist with its completion.
