Thursday 6 February, 2.30pm-3.30pm - Free string-making with ti kōuka leaves, Rekindle at Okains Bay for Waitangi Day

    This workshop is held at the Okains Bay Māori and Colonial Museum on Waitangi Day.

    Please note that the workshop price does not include the $10 entry fee for adults to the museum (children $2, pre-schoolers are free). Please bring cash for this and please also note that this is the museum’s key fundraising day, so do come along and support them!

    We are honoured to be taking part in Waitangi Day commemorations at Okains Bay on 6 February 2020. As part of this, we have been invited to present some workshops at the wonderful Okains Bay Māori and Colonial Museum.

    We encourage koha to be made directly to the museum for this free class that Rekindle is offering.

    Learn how to use tī kōuka / cabbage tree leaves to make a strong and beautiful twine. Rekindle’s most popular workshop, this technique for making string and rope is simple and can be used with many different materials.

    Tī kōuka cabbage tree leaves are such an abundant and multi-purpose material that we can find all around us. If you have access to fallen/brown cabbage tree leaves, please feel free bring a big bunch along with you, but if you haven't found your local source yet, you are most welcome to use ours.

    Bookings are essential.
