Nau mai haere mai, you are welcome to attend an introduction to raranga (weaving) with harakeke (flax). This is the first class of many that will be held over the coming months at the Leonard Cockayne Centre that aims to spread knowledge of traditional weaving and healing practices utilising the native plants at Ōtari Wilton’s Bush. We hope to bring our surrounding community together and get to know one another on a regular basis.
You will walk away with a small woven taonga at the end of the class. Rongoā (Māori healing) tea and other light refreshments will be provided.
