Wednesday 29 June, 5.30-8pm, Seasonal wreath making: Winter

Come along and learn how to weave a seasonal wreath with Lily Duval in a class held at our Matatiki Toi Ora Arts Centre workshop, located upstairs in the former Boys’ High building at 28 Worcester Boulevard.

Join Lily Duval for this seasonal wreath-making workshop and learn how to make a strong and beautiful twine, which we will then transform into a wreath. This will then be decorated with different leaves and flowers that are particular to this time of year. During this workshop we will also talk about the practices and ways to celebrate this time of year.

Lily will bring some seasonal finds to decorate your wreath with, but feel free to bring your own!

We will be using tī kōuka/cabbage tree leaves in this workshop as these are such an abundant and multi-purpose material that we can find all around us. If you can access some, soak it over night or even longer and bring this in.

Tangata whenua have been weaving with tī kōuka for hundreds of years here in Aotearoa. If you are interested learning traditional Māori weaving techniques, we also offer Raranga workshops at Rekindle with Mihi Adams and Kahu Collective. We can also recommend contacting the team at Te Wānanga o Aotearoa who teach a full raranga programme as well as other Toi Māori.

Masks are required for this workshop.
