A Muka Experience (Flax Fibres) - 30 June 2019

When: Sun 30 June, 13:00-16:30

Where: The Artery, Historic Village, 159 17th Avenue, Tauranga

Book yourself right now into this workshop to learn a non-traditional method of extracting muka (flax fibres).

Muka is used to weave korowai (a type of cloak) or piupiu (a waist-to-knees garment used for kapa haka performances). The same technique can be used to finish other weaved items – like baskets (which you can learn to make at a subsequent course at the Artery in July).

In this workshop you will make a least one personal item from your extracted flax fibres.

This 3.5 hour workshop is for adults and bookings are essential.
