Saturday 23 November, 9am-1pm, Harakeke raranga for beginners with Tracey-Anne Cook

This class is held in the Rekindle workshop, upstairs in the Boys High Building at 28 Worcester Boulevard.

During this workshop, Tracey-Anne Cook will share her love of harakeke weaving or raranga. She will introduce this beautiful resourceful craft, and teach the group how to make a kono or basket.

Please bring a pair of scissors, and wear comfortable clothes for working in.

This class is suitable for adults.

Minimum numbers are required for the class to run.

Bookings are essential, non-refundable and non-transferable. We do, however, understand that things come up and try and accommodate people to the best of our ability. This can include moving people to another class or a refund - but please be aware that this is reliant on us filling the original spot.

This is because all of our pricing, and our efforts to keep costs as low as possible while still paying the tutors a fee commensurate with their experience and allowing them to cover the costs of living, is based on running these classes with a certain number of participants

Tracey-Anne Cook has been weaving for many years informally but in 2012 enrolled with Te Wananga o Āotearoa for their raranga (weaving) courses.  She emerged with a level 5 equivalency certificate of achievement and continues to support and work with the Wānanga. She is also a member of the Ōtautahi Weavers group who meet regularly through the year to work on projects as a group and individually. Last year she took part in Rekindle's inaugural Necessary Traditions.

If you are interested to learn more about raranga (harakeke weaving) this is possible via the Toi Maruata Certificate, an amazing 18 week programme with Te Wānanga o Aotearoa in Ōtautahi Christchurch, which commence in March & July.

 

We are grateful to the support of CNZ, which has enable us to offer this class at a subsidised rate.
