Simply amazing, ... Thank you very much for such an enjoyable and fulfilling journey, fully enjoyed these last few days....



" I would just like to say thank you, and how appreciative I am of this beautiful course. Thank you for sharing your treasured knowledge :)

Let's Weave Together!

Next to weaving itself, teaching others how to weave is one of my greatest pleasures.

I've introduced thousands of people to the world of Māori weaving and I never tire of the joy it brings those who learn.

It's particularly satisfying to see someone who never had  the opportunity to grow up with things Māori, start to feel at ease and more confident simply through learning how to weave a kono or a kete.

So if you thought about joining me to learn but you're not 100% sure then this is an ideal chance to give it a go and see how you feel at the end of the 5 days.

I look forward to sharing the excitement of Raranga with you.

Happy weaving!
