Free whānau Matariki Harakeke (flax) Whetū (stars) workshop

  • This event has passed.

Come along and create a Harekeke whetū (star) necklace or bracelet

Matariki is about whānau and it’s lovely to create together. This will be a fun workshop focused on learning some tikanga (cultural practices), te reo (language), weaving skills and getting together to be crafty. You can bring up to 2 children with you. You are included as a participant in terms of the workshop numbers.

Come along and create some whetū/stars for Matariki! You will learn how to gather and prepare harakeke in order to make beautiful whetu. I will have elastic so you can make them into a bracelet or necklace, or you could use your new skills to make more at home and create a Matariki decoration.

This workshop will be calm, fun and supportive. It is suitable for children aged 8 -13 years old. An adult participant (over 16) is required to supervise and weave alongside the child/ren they bring.
