Tūngia te ururua kia tupu whakaritorito te tupu o te harakeke.
Set the overgrown bush alight and the new flax shoots will spring up.

Nau mai haere mai, all are welcome to attend an introduction and beyond to raranga (weaving) with harakeke (flax).

Led by Frank Topia (Ngā Puhi, Ngāti Porou, Ngāti Haua) with Linda Lee (Ngāti Kurī, Ngāi Tākoto, Te Rarawa, Te Aupōri, Ngāpuhi, Ngāti Raukawa, Ngāti Huia) and kaiāwhina (helpers).

Starting with tikanga and making putiputi (flowers) kono and konae (small containers), over time, continued participants develop their skills to craft more complex objects such as baskets, wall hangings, wahakura and kete. You will walk away with woven taonga at the end of each class.

For more information about what to expect, what to bring, and how tickets work, > upcoming classes > Beginners-What to expect.

If you are a beginner and/or we are harvesting for you please try to book at least three days in advance as we can't harvest in the rain.

We are reducing classes during June / July / August ... the wettest months to acknowledge the tikanga of our harakeke.

(We will be able to transfer of refund your tickets)

No experience is required. Please arrive on time for karakia (blessing).

Light refreshments will be provided and you are welcome to bring shared kai.

Children over 10 please and if under 14 should be accompanied by an adult with a ticket.

Occasionally, we will be moved to the Tāne Whakapirpiri Visitor's Centre due to other bookings. Please refer to website (upcoming classes) where venues will be specified for the class.
