When you first start learning about mahi raranga/weaving, this kete is one of the first items you create. The base skills learnt, will allow you to make many kete for yourself or as gifts for others.

All equipment provided, and light refreshments.

The following will be covered:
- Tikanga (Custom) of mahi raranga/weaving
- How to identify the correct type of flax to harvest from
- How to harvest flax sustainably
- Prepare harakeke/flax for weaving
- Make kete and handles

Complete your very first kete!

The base skills you learn will enable you to start building a foundation to aim towards creating more complex items in the future if you so wish - kete whiri (plait kete), whariki (mats), pieke (backpack), kete whakairo (patterned kete), flat bottom kete, etc.

Working with harakeke/flax is very spiritual. It heals your heart, and mind and opens doorways that will guide and heal you and your whanau/family.
