Get hands on with harakeke
For Matariki, Matthew McIntyre-Wilson will host a Net-Working event. You will learn how to make a simple bag from harakeke (flax) that can be used to gather kai from your local supermarket, backyard or further afield!
- This wānanga is for all skill levels.
- Rangatahi (12+) are welcome to attend with their caregivers.
- Tea and coffee provided. Please bring your own kai for lunch.
This wānanga is a part of Matthew Mcintyre-Wilson: Matariki Artist In Residence at Oxford Gallery, 20 June – 11 July 2022
Matthew McIntyre-Wilson (Taranaki, Nga Mahanga and Titahi) will turn the gallery into an active studio and be working on site.
Working across the disciplines of jewellery, craft, and object-making, Matthew re-articulates the forms, patterns and practice of raranga whakairo (plaiting) with precious metals. Matariki is a time to learn mātauranga Māori (Māori knowledge) such as new skills and material preparations.
Exhibition supported by Te Puni Kōkiri.
