Awhi Rito: Raranga Basics for beginners

What you'll gain in this course


Understanding the values and cultural practices associated with Māori weaving will help you to relax and enjoy weaving rather than feel uptight and anxious. It feels good to know that you are doing everything in an appropriate way to protect yourself and the environment.

Proper Preparation

Using properly prepared whenu (weaving strips that are soft and pliable) to weave with makes for a more enjoyable experience and a better looking finish.

A Good Foundation In The Basics

Knowing how to cast on, find your ara, make corners, weave up using the correct Raranga technique are essential skills for Raranga weaving.

Correct Raranga Technique

Raranga is not a threading of weaving strips.
It is important to build the right weaving habit
