March: Harakeke: Flax Workshop

Explore indigenous innovations in relationship to flax, particularly flax weaving.

Every weekend for the month of March we are collaborating with Mangere Mountain Education Centre where you can come along to MOTAT and discover the traditional method of harvesting harakeke with Mangere Mountains Master Weaver. Learn how to prepare harakeke (flax) for weaving, and hand weave basic harakeke items such as putiputi (flowers), ika (fish), whetu (star), and poroporo auhoaraa (friendship bracelet).
