- How to harvest flax sustainably
- Prepare harakeke/flax for weaving

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.
