Sunday 18 August, 10am-2pm, 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.

Bookings are essential and are non-refundable. This class is suitable for adults.

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.
