Traditional Māori Korowai classes
Our Toi Paematua Raranga programme is based in the heart of the King Country (Waitomo) where tradition and legacy are key. If you have experience in Māori weaving and are looking to further your skills or gain a qualification, this could be the programme for you. Run over 36 weeks, classes are delivered over 10 weekends of the year with long distance weekly support options avaliable. This year our main focus will be to learn all elements needed to make your own traditional muka Korowai, including; the Maniapoto techniques of producing muka whenu and aho, preparation and attachment of feathers and hukahuka, traditional whatu and tāniko weaving techniques, Pāheke adornment techniques and more. We will also be making traditional Tukutuku as part of our group projects. Each project will require the following; rangahau/ research, design, planning, creating, documentation, reporting and reflection all of which will be taught and guided by your Kaiako.
