Purakau Productions recently facilitated the flax-weaving workshop 'Te raranga putiputi me nga purakau' at the Chau Chak Wing Museum during the April school holidays, and the feedback was terrific.
Participants learned about harakeke, its properties, and usage, and created a bouquet of three different flowers (to take home) while sharing stories with their family members or friends.
On behalf of the Waddell whanau thank you for hosting and guiding us through the weaving and storytelling workshop. It was fantastic, and we're all the better and richer for taking part. The combination of learning together, weaving with your hands and the achievement of creating something by the end was special and has stayed with me well beyond the experience.
