Simply amazing, this is something my Wife and I can do together to pass the time.... Something we can both do with our daughter, maybe set one afternoon a week to do quality family time together.... Learning from you was awesome and you made it look so simple yet achievable, we hope to do the Kete Club one day.... Thank you very much for such an enjoyable and fulfilling journey, fully enjoyed these last few days....

Frequently asked questions

What do I need?

You'll need:
- a good pair of scissors
- a sharp stanley knife
-a firm surface to weave on and preferably good natural light
- a source of harakeke but if you don't have hararkeke don't worry because you can still learn the raranga technique using alternative readily available materials

You will be shown how to properly gather and prepare harakeke for weaving during the 5 Day Experience

Can I still do this if I don't have harakeke?

Absolutely! You can use other plant materials, firm paper, stiff fabric or canvas . . . have fun experimenting.

Do I have to attend at a certain time of day or can I do the classes when it suits me?

The lessons are available in our virtual classroom  24/7 so you can do them when it suits you

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,
